USVI for Cruise Visitors: 3 Things to Do in St. John

boat excursion

If you are on a cruise vacation in the Caribbean there is a good opportunity that you will have the ability to experience the amazing St. John island in the USVI. We have done a bit of digging and come up with the following list of things to do while in St. John:

 Cruz Bay Town 

One of the top things to do in St. John includes experiencing Cruz Bay Town. A laid-back, easygoing, small town that’s ideal for romantic explorers. It isn’t any wonder it is referred to as the love city.

The town is where you’ll initially arrive once in St. John. Ferries from St. Thomas and islands nearby drop visitors off at Cruz Bay Harbour. There’s plenty of stuff to do here such as shopping at Mongoose Junction or the Wharfside village. Both spaces offer intriguing outlets that bear one-of-a-kind Caribbean architecture.

 See Elaine Lone Sprauve Library

Take a small break from your city tour and escape rain or sun at the Elaine Lone Sprauve Library. It is nettled right off Cruz Bay and includes among the best methods of learning about the history of St. John.

The plantation building of 1751 that hosts the library is in itself an incredible attraction. But venturing indoors the quiet, well-stocked library presents you with an even larger attraction. The island history. The Library exhibits the island’s history with well-preserved newspaper clippings and photos from prior centuries.

 Island Tour

The fastest and best method of getting acquainted with all of St. John is by an island tour. Exit from beautiful Red Hook Harbor on St. Thomas or Cruz Bay beach, St John. Travel to the St John National Park and U.S. Virgin Island’s best areas for snorkeling aboard the island’s latest snorkel boat, Ocean Surfari’s 47’ Reef Surfari.
