- The Virgin Islands Best Guide
The main “town” on St. John is Cruz Bay. It’s the arrival place for ferries from St. Thomas, its home to the post office and government offices, and it’s a center for shopping, eating, drinking and being merry! Cruz Bay’s nickname is Love City; earned because of its eclectic, take it easy vibe.
While in Cruz Bay you can visit the National Park Visitor Center, stop into the Elaine Sprauve Library (housed in the 1750’s Estate Enighed House), grab a cool beverage and relax in Cruz Bay Park, or take leisurely stroll through the shops and restaurants.
