St. John is the smallest of the 3 U.S. Virgin Islands. Virgin Islands National Park occupies more than half the island. Its forests shelter many resident and migratory birds.
The laid back nature of the inhabitants of the island makes the island as peaceful as thumb in a baby’s mouth.

The smallest of the three main US Virgin Islands, Saint John is located about four miles east of Saint Thomas, the location of the territory’s capital, Charlotte Amalie. It is also four miles southwest of Tortola, part of the British Virgin Islands. Its largest settlement is Cruz Bay with a population of 2,700.

Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, if not the world. The scenery and almost perfect climate inspire many to make St. John their permanent home.
