Saint John Island, Caribbean
Life moves at a slower pace on Saint John Island, the smallest of the three US Virgin Islands and a place where wildlife abounds and all is at peace.
The National Park dominates here, covering more than half of the miniscule island — it is just nine miles from one end to the other — and with countless bird species to spot, and dolphins and turtles amongst the fascinating creatures found in the warm Caribbean waters, it’s no surprise that this is a destination that draws nature lovers again and again.
This is a place to rest and relax, far from the beaten track and a much calmer destination than other Caribbean islands. Head to the North Shore to sample the beautiful sands, with Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Maho Beach and Honeymoon Beach all recommended. Peace and quiet are abundant, making this an island where relaxation is always on the agenda.
