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.

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.
