St. John

Trunk Bay - St. John, USVI

St. John

The US Virgin Islands are a very popular honeymoon destination. The smallest of the three US Virgin Islands, two thirds of St. John is a U.S. National Park. Known for its picture perfect white sand beaches, turquoise bays of beautiful corals, exotic tropical fish and the picturesque views of the lush surrounding hillside, St. John symbolizes what the world is like when nature takes care of itself.

St. John Reviews

In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. It's part of the U.S. Virgins so no passport is required. It's the smallest of the group and the most intimate. 75% of the island is state park so there are only a few resorts...
