Lodging

St. John has a range of accommodations to fit any budget. There are two campgrounds on the Island; Cinnamon Bay Campground located on park property, and Maho Bay, a privately owned campground within the authorized boundary of the park.

Accommodations outside the boundary of the park vary from exclusive beach resorts to Bread and Breakfasts, guest houses, and vacation villas. All are within short distances of the park.

Where To Eat

The majority of the restaurants are in the vicinity of Cruz Bay, many within walking distance of the public dock. They range from very casual to more formal, where reservations are required, with commensurate price ranges.

Although Coral Bay is a distance from Cruz Bay (nine miles), it features several restaurants worth the drive.

Resturants are also available at both Cinnamon Bay and Maho Bay campgrounds, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
