St John Travel Guide

On September 6th, Hurricane Irma tore through the U.S. Virgin Islands, causing catastrophic destruction and killing more than 33 people across the Caribbean. The Category 5 storm brought 185 mph winds that caused untold damage and devastation to once idyllic St. John and St. Thomas. Just two weeks later, another Category 5 storm, Hurricane Maria, hit the Caribbean and caused more destruction, especially on St. Croix.  Help with the USVI recovery by clicking here.

St. John is sometimes referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the Caribbean.   It has become the place to travel in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It’s not easy to get to because there is no airport on St. John.  But the capital of the Us. Virgin Islands, Charlotte Amalie, is only four miles away. So, St. John is easy to get to by ferry or by boat.  On the island you will find gorgeous, sun-baked beaches, a national park that covers almost two-thirds of the island, coral reefs, and friendly locals. On St. John, you can stay in an eco-friendly cabin, a campground, a beautiful resort or in villas and vacation rentals that range from quaint to super luxurious.  Cruz Bay is the main town on St. John., and this is where the ferry is that connects St. John to St. Thomas.  St. John offers nature lovers an array of activities. One of the most popular activities of course, is going to the beach.  St. John beaches are protected by the National Park Service.  St. John offers rest, relaxation and an adequate amount of sporting activities. Plan the activities you would like to do most and have a great vacation!  Visit the beautiful beaches of St. John here on our Lesser Antilles Beach Guide.  Let our St. John travel guide lead the way for you to plan your next beach destination!

Weather

It is warm year-round on St. John. The average max temp. is 84-89°F, with August being the hottest month and Dec-Jan the coldest. The average min temp is 73°F-80°F. The average water temperature is 82°F.  February to May are the driest months, October to January the wettest. It can however heavily rain any day of the year, but usually it is gone as fast as it came. Rain is actually a welcome relief from the heat.  September is dead low season and many businesses are closed. Other than that, any time is good to visit. The climate is most agreeable in December through February, but these are also the most expensive months (however some good deals can be made in the 2nd half of February).  If you are a surfer or like waves, you are more likely to find them from November to April. But tropical storms can generate some random big swells as well.

Getting to St. John

Whether your vacation is on St. John or you are visiting St. Thomas and want to head over to St. John for the day – you will be taking a boat to travel between the two islands.  First choose your ferry, Charlotte Amalie to St. John; or Red Hook to St. John. The Charlotte Amalie ferry is closer to the Airport (about 3 miles; 10 minute drive in low traffic); and also to the Cruise Ship Docks. The Charlotte Amalie schedule has 3 departures a day. There is no terminal, the ferry picks up right off the Charlotte Amalie waterfront. The Red Hook ferry is about 10 miles from the airport, about a 35 minute drive in low traffic, and about 8-9 miles from the Cruise Ship Docks. The Red Hook ferry has departures every hour on the hour from early morning to midnight. There is a ferry terminal in Red Hook with benches and a small bar. Reservations are not required for either ferry.  Visit the ferry schedules here.

Getting Around St. John

Taxis meet the ferries as they arrive in Cruz Bay, or you can hail one if you see one. Taxi rates are set by the island’s Taxi Association and fares are widely posted, even in taxis; check out the official fares in the free magazine “This Week” offered in most businesses. Typical fares from Cruz Bay are $8 to Trunk Bay, $9 to Cinnamon Bay, and $18 to Maho Bay. Waiting charges are $1/minimum per minute after the first 5 minutes.

Rental Car

St. John is a small island with many beaches and areas of interest. If you would like to explore the island at your leisure the best way to do it is by having your own mode of transportation. Many rental agencies are conveniently located in Cruz Bay, within walking distance of the ferry dock. Some agencies also have offices at the larger hotels.  Average prices on rentals range from $65 to $100 a day and differ depending on time of year or season.

Driver’s holding international licenses must purchase a temporary foreign driver’s permit. These can be purchased from the Virgin Islands Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

      Thanks Melinda! I am glad you are enjoying reading all there is to see and do on the beautiful island of St John. It will take a little time for them to rebuild after the hurricanes that hit them, but I think by next year, they will be back to their usual beauty. Thanks for reading!

    This is such an informative site. My wedding is coming up in 5 months and I still have no idea where we are going on our honeymoon. The beautiful beaches you talked about on your site were exciting and helped me narrow some beautiful destinations down. Thank you so much!

      You are very welcome.  Just a note, that I don’t think any of the islands in this area will be having visitors for a while until they can rebuild from the destruction of Irma, Jose, and Martha.  One island that is still good is Aruba.  They are outside of the hurricane belt and saw very little devastation.  You can learn more, and plan at this link:  Aruba Travel Guide.  Thanks for visiting my St John Travel Guide.

    Wow St. John looks like the place to be. Im still in the midst of planning a winter getaway. I think with these destruction caused by these hurricanes we are going to see alot of pressure on other travel destinations. Unfortunately price increases will follow.

    Do you now how bad the damage was in the St. John area was?

    Cheers

      I know that St. John was heavily damaged.  They lost homes, cars, roofs, and the landscape of the little island has been stripped bare.  They had the 150 mile an hour gusts slam into them when Irma showed up.  So, it will be a little while for them to rebuild.  I don’t know if we will see price increases.  You have to remember that these islands depend on tourism for their economy.  So right now, they are suffering huge economically.  I think we will see some great prices to get tourists back to these great islands in the Caribbean.  Thank you for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com.

    I have always wanted to visit St. John’s.
    The idea of rest and relaxation on an island in the Carribean sounds magnificent. I have heard of Trunk Bay from others and I would definitely go there. Snorkeling is one of my favorite things to do. Cinnamon Bay sounds perfect to snorkel with the family. I think that one of the charters you mentioned would be fun for a day.
    What a beautiful place!

    This article makes me want to travel right now!!! I can’t believe how many things there are to do and see on this beautiful island. I think the best idea is the Lion in Da Sun option where you can island hop to even more places. Its such a shame the amount of destruction all of these islands including St. Johns have experienced with the recent hurricanes.

      It is definitely a shame to see such devastation for sure.  I truly believe that in no time, they will be back to their full beauty and ready to welcome visitors.  I agree that the Lion in Da Sun is a great way to see and do so much!  Glad you enjoyed reading and thanks for visiting the St. John Travel Guide!
