St John has so much to offer with its world class white sandy beaches, pristine Caribbean waters, and numerous activities available for those wanting to stay active during their vacation. There are also lounge chairs and beach bars for those that enjoy a quieter vacation experience. St John is truly one of a kind!
St John is known for its beautiful, pristine beaches and clear, warm water. The North Shore beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park are where you will find all the sandy beaches you have been dreaming of! The East End of St John (Coral Bay) is best for snorkeling adventures, but is just as impressive with its beauty and views of the British Virgin Islands. Coconut Coast Villas has a detailed list of all the beaches in St John in each room, so you have all the information needed once you arrive to be able to select the beach of choice daily! If you can’t wait to see the beaches, here are a few sites that provide good information for you-
There are approximately 30 hiking trails on St John. There are hikes for all levels here and most have great views and/or interesting foliage and wildlife. The USVI National Park Visitor’s Center should be your first stop to gather info. We also have some guide books in our office that we loan out to guests. Please inquire in the office when you arrive.
Here is a good site for some general info on a few of the Trails here:
One of the best ways to enjoy the ocean experience is to hop on a Paddleboard (SUP) or on a kayak and explore the many bays and cays around St John. You can rent for the day, or week, or take a guided tour. We recommend USVI Expeditions for all of your adventure needs to include kayaking, paddleboarding and hiking tours! You can book their adventures right on our website when you book a room at Coconut Coast Villas or contact them directly.
Virgin Islands EcoTours at Honeymoon Beach also offer some kayak and paddleboard options.
Arawak Expeditions offers similar tours, but also has a Fly Fishing tour and multi-day kayak adventures.
