For those that like a remote, quiet area when vacationing. I would recommend going away from Cruz Bay and venture over to Coral Bay. There is definitely less people and there is some great hiking spots and great snorkel areas.

Our family stayed at a villa in Coral bay for a week in February. It has a great, laid back vibe. We loved trying out all of the different restaurants nearby us. Most everything (shops and restaurants) on this side of the island are really...More

Coral Bay is quiet but its getting more and more developed as is all of St. John. Disappointed with how crowded the beaches are in St. John these days.

This is a great location to stay if you're headed to St John. Although there aren't any resorts, VRBO offers a number of local, reasonable rentals. It is centrally located on the island and, in our opinions, offered the best restaurants. We took a snorkel...More
