Taking a vacation on an island is always a good idea, but what happens when you want that and to be able to stay active while on your trip? Then you go to Saint John, of course!

Not For The Faint of Heart

Saint John is not just one of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

There’s a lot going on here throughout the year, but the best possible time to visit is the end of summer, because then you can enjoy the amazing beaches and still get involved with the activities.

Staying at Saint John might not fit everyone’s budget, as renting a cabin costs $60 while a private hotel room starts at $100. However, there are many campsites which are popular for their $30 price.

There are many dining options here, too. From $10 casual meals to $35 restaurant meals, to a $65 week’s worth of grocery foods, eating at Saint John is more flexible than its accommodation.

Did Someone Say Paradise?

Saint John is different from the other Virgin Islands for many reasons, and just one of them is the amount of things you’re able to see and do here.

For those who wish to relax and take it easy, there are 35 beaches to choose from. From the popular Trunk Bay to the nude Solomon’s Beach, we’re sure everyone will find their personal piece of heaven here.

As for those of you who are looking for excitement, we recommend diving in the crystal-clear water, windsurfing, jet-skiing, snorkeling, sailing, or kayaking.

One of the unique features of Saint John is the 20 mile hiking trail in the Virgin Islands National Park. You’ll be surrounded by many wildlife and plants, so make sure you check it out.
