Accommodations on St. John, Virgin Islands

The island of St. John offers a tranquil retreat with a diverse range of accommodations, including resorts, campsites, inns, and villas. However, it’s important to note that these can fill up quickly, particularly during the high-demand winter season.

As you search for accommodations in St. John, keep in mind the two primary towns: Cruz Bay and Coral Bay. Several small inns are available in these areas, as are a few vacation homes and condos. Staying in the Cruz Bay or Coral Bay areas will allow easy access to popular restaurants, bars and shopping. Access to beaches will require a short 8-20 minute drive depending on destination.
