3/4 of STJ are National Park and I believe off road is not allowed. The island ecology can not handle it.The remaining 1/4 is private and I doubt anyone would be interested in allowing off road.

Do yourself and everyone else a big favor...enjoy the beaches and hike the trails on foot.

I have been wondering the same thing.I have raced motocross for many years and the same thing with off road type cars.I dont plan on racing but may want to go see an event from time to time.any type of events there? Taking a motorcycle down to the islands seems cost effective but do you have to go through the same routine as car as far as getting it registered?Any info would be a great help!

I see very few motorcycles on STT - from what I understand they are not as safe as one would think. I know more than one rider who was injured severly, and the collision was NOT his fault. If you want to go 'off road' - buy a 4x4 jeep and go to some of the remote beaches on STT.

Manta: I am going to have to call you on that one. Jeeps on the beach are NOT appreciated. Many beaches are turtle sanctuaries and if they aren't, the erosion caused by vehicles digging up the sand will cause serious problems. Please leave the beaches and trails alone. If you must drive "off road", go to Florida.

IMHO, of course.

P.S. You work at Secret Harbour????

Never said to go ON the beaches with the jeep ETA:(sorry if that's what I implied..oops) - just they're useful to get TO the beach and park, and walk a short distance =). The roads to Stumpy and Nelteburg are best driven with a 4x4 most of the time. YES stay the heck off the beaches with your 2 or 4 wheeled vehicle....I wanna keep my turtles around 😉

and to your PS - on property, yes.....but not FOR SH

Let's ALL say it again. OFF ROAD vehicles are not welcome on the beaches and remote areas of the virgin islands. They destroy habitat, they kill animals and really annoy me.

I would guess that some areas tolerate them...but please not here.

"Off Road" may be here in Florida tearing up our scrub lands and other habitat but I, for one, do not welcome them in Florida either.
