Beaches-St. Johns v St. Thomas

Hi, I'm new here to this forum. I am looking into vacation options for next year. We are beach people. We usually go to Anguilla, but are looking for some place new. My vacations consist of nice resorts, great beaches, lots of swimming, walking the beach and sunning. Don't need a lot of sight seeing-just the beach and relax time. Where is the better beach? St. Johns or St. Thomas? I know everyone's opinion if different, but keep in mind looking for a nice resort too. Any thoughts? Just looking for ideas to look into.

Although I completely agree with your post, I do find it an interesting question. It's easy to understand why (standard) English speaking people who are unfamiliar with with the island version would add an apostrophe to "Magens," but why append an "s" to "St. John"? If anything, it might make a smidge of sense to add an "apostrophe s." Possibly it has something to do with "St Johns Bay Rum" having that spelling.

We are heading back to the Ritz at St Thomas this year. We only visited St. Johns briefly so I may not be qualified. I can say that the beaches in St. Thomas are fantastic! You would love it.
