Sailing over to St. John, USVI is a HIGHLIGHT destination…
I don’t know of a better spot in the USVI, than St. John. Known as the smallest of the three lovely, U.S. Virgin Islands, which are located in the Caribbean Sea. St. John is the home of the Virgin Islands National Park and occupies more than half the island. Its forests shelter resident and migratory birds, including cuckoos, warblers, and hummingbirds. The mangroves at Hurricane Hole, in the east, support corals and anemones. Dolphins inhabit the island’s waters, which also host hawksbill and green turtles. You’ll see an abundant array of ocean life here on the islands.
A Visit to the Windmill Bar on St. John USVI
I believe my family and I visited this place a few times while sailing with our crew Captain Kelsey and Chef Simon. We love the Windmill Bar! Locals and tourists drive up to the top of St John for the view and just look at that incredible sunset.
Top Things to do while on St. John, USVI
- Soak up the sun in Caneel Bay (northwest side of St. John)
- Watch the sunset at the Windmill Bar and grab drinks with friends
- Pay a visit to the “Lime Out” floating Taco Boat
- Hike Ram Head Trail
- Swim in Maho Bay
- Lay sun-soaked on Salt Pond (but watch out for the tree spurs.. ouch!)
- If you’d like a pool day and don’t mind the $125 fee, visit Lovongo Bay Beach Resort and have dinner (the mooring is also a fee, about $50)
My personal fave is Caneel Bay on St John
For this group, our favorite was Caneel Bay, but guests may like Trunk Bay, Maho Bay, Cinnamon, or Honeymoon. There are many different beaches, but for this group, Caneel won hands down.
