Spent two weeks here on the island of St John. Wanted to experience as much of the National Park on St. John while I was there and I can say I did as much as you can do and still get in some relaxation. The Visitor's Center in Cruz Bay was for me a disappointment. The Rangers working there are not overly friendly, however I think this has more to do with the Island Culture which is the same way. Bough a year pass at Trunk Bay for the family. National Park pass is not accepted. The displays were not much to remember either. The trails are in good shape and I did a few miles on the trail system at the various historic spots around the island. We did some snorkeling at some of the beaches as well. Trunk Bay beach lives up to it's reputation, as the best beach in the world, and is better the earlier you get there, depending on your tolerance for crowds. PArking can be impossible if you wait till midday. Taxis will take you to the Bay for a steep price. If you are here for very long, rent a car and get to the other side of the island, it is much more beautiful and peaceful.
Attractions: Beautiful Beaches, great trails, warm water, wildlife if you look for it. Lots of history
Distractions: Cost of doing anything is very high, so plan ahead. Crowds at popular spots.
