The Virgin Islands National Park is located on St. John. This park covers nearly 60 percent of the islandís landmass. Visitors to St John are permitted to camp in the park, and there are also resorts and high end hotels for those feeling less adventurous.
Most lodging accommodations for tourists and homes for the locals are situated near Coral and Cruz Bay. Ferry service to St Thomas is available in Cruz Bay. Visitors will also find stores, restaurants, and other tourist services in Cruz and Coral Bay.
Since it is so large, most people visiting St John eventually make their way to the national park. Here, trails cutting through the forests will lead tourists past exotic birds perched on trees, historic farms, and beautiful rivers. Since there is so much to see, park rangers lead tours throughout the park.
Besides enjoying natural beauty, tourists can have a lot of fun on the island. They can enjoy the thrill of windsurfing, sailing, along with numerous other water sports. Like most Caribbean destinations, tourists will also find great shopping and restaurants.
Since there is not an airport on St John, travellers will have to book a flight to St Thomas. From there, they can charter a ferry to reach St John.
