Island Activities

Places To See

Three Quarters of St. John is National Park. There are several trails and guided tours that can acquaint you with the ancient folklore and local wildlife. Petroglyphs created by Arawak Indians can be found along the Reef Bay Trail in Virgin Islands National Park.

The Annaberg Sugar Plantation often hosts exhibitions, concerts and arts and crafts fairs. The grounds themselves offer a glimpse into the rich agricultural history of the island. The self-guided Annaberg Historic Trail takes visitors through restored ruins on the plantation grounds.

Located in a restored plantation great house near Cruz Bay, is the Elaine Lone Sprauve Library and Museum which contains photographs and newspaper articles detailing the island's history. Paintings, drawings and other artwork created by local artists are also on display.

Volunteers can join scientists at the Cinnamon Bay archaeological dig to help uncover 500 years of ceremonial activity of the Taino Indians, as well Danish plantation ruins. Vacationers are encouraged to visit the site and join the excavation. For more information on volunteering please take a look at the friends of the Virgin Islands National Park website, www.friendsvinp.org. The friends of the Virgin Islands National Park are dedicated to the protection and preservation of the natural and cultural resources of the Virgin Islands National Park.

Spending a day out in the azure Caribbean Sea is amazing. A trip to the Virgin Gorda Baths on the British virgin Island of Virgin Gorda makes a fantastic boating and snorkeling adventure for the whole family. The natural mineral rock formations pivot on each other creating caves and pools of water famous to word known photographers. This lush setting is a site for everyone.

St Johns beaches are the most diverse beautiful beaches I have seen in one place. Rocky or sandy each one is unique in view, sand texture, shells, vegetation, and sea life. The most beautiful thing is that you can go to more than one a day! It takes 2-3 hours to circle the island with beaches all along the way! Check out our books of St. John Beaches at our beach store.
