The gateway to the island of Saint John, Cruz Bay represents the island's largest town, port, and commercial center.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cruz Bay: Magens Bay (in Magens Bay) and Smith Bay (Coral World Ocean Park & Coki Point Beach). There's lots more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, enjoy the sand and surf at Trunk Bay Beach, stop by Bamboo Studio, and contemplate the long history of Annaberg Sugar Plantation.

With two thirds of St. John designated as a national park, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands is also the least developed, lacking an airport and cruise ship docks. Although well connected to its more commercialized neighbor, St. Thomas, St. John makes it easy to get away from crowds and enjoy pristine white-sand beaches. On a trip to St. John you can spend your days snorkeling or kayaking, explore the verdant hills of the national park, or head to Cruz Bay, the islands largest town, for excellent dining and shopping.
