Rented a jeep and drove out to east side of the island. When we arrived late morning (1100ish) not too crowded. We mainly hit places to eat and shop and walked around before driving to Salt Pond. As beaches go we thought Salt Pond much...More

We had a wonderful week in a house overlooking Coral Bay. St John is a great island but a jeep is a must!

Coral Bay is so quaint and it is much quieter than the Cruz Bay side. The only 2 downsides to Coral Bay are the smell of the mangroves by the dumpsters that you HAVE to pass (just take a deep breath and hold), and you...More

it is a bit of a drive from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay (about 45 minutes, give or take depending on how many donkeys are in the road) but it is well worth it to experience this side of the island. Several nice bars and...More

Coral Bay is lush and beautiful. The roads are steep and hairpin turns are the norm - not for the faint of heart. Every inch of the island offers postcard views. You will find wild chickens, goats and donkeys everywhere and the most gorgeous beaches...More

We have been to St. John twice and both times stayed in Coral Bay. It is much quieter than Cruz Bay and has some lovely little restaurants and beautiful views.

They say the "townies" never visit this small town on the east side of St. John. It is quiet and small and the only souvenirs are the beachwear and beach supplies. Not to mention, the road is curvy and steep to get there, Even though...More

It would be a shame to simply remain in Cruz Bay when visiting St John, USVI. Coral Bay has a TON to offer as well and is Well Worth the Treck Across the Island. Recommended!
