St. John offers plenty to keep you busy (or not!). Trunk, Cinnamon
and Coral Bay all offer wonderful snorkeling and sailing. The
concierge can arrange for you to take sailing/scuba adventures to
other islands, like St. Thomas or St. Croix, or the British Virgin
Islands of Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, and Virgin Gorda. There are
lovely trails for sightseeing and hiking, particular the Reef Trail
and the trails at nearby Caneel Bay. Less than 2 miles from the
resort is the town, where there is fun shopping and delightful
restaurants overlooking the water.
Two-thirds of the island has been designated as part of the Virgin
Islands National Park. Trunk Bay is known for its underwater snorkel
trail. Colorful buoys mark plaques submerged in shallow waters that
identify the type of coral and fish that swim through it. It's
interesting to learn the islands history by visiting the ruins of a
sugar plantation or the museum of a restored plantation great house.
