St. John is the smallest, and least commercialized of the United States Virgin Islands. The island boasts picture perfect sandy beaches surrounded by stunning turquoise seas with endless supplies of brightly colored corals and tropical fish. The absence of high rise condos and overcrowded resorts makes the island seem like an idyllic piece of paradise for many who take the time to book a private jet charter to St. John.
More than 60 percent of St. John’s land mass has been set aside as the Virgin Islands National Park. This means the land here will remain unspoiled for generations to come with the plan and wildlife relatively unchanged during that time. Many of the island’s coral reefs are protected by being within the barriers of the Virgin Islands National Park. Further protection was granted in 2001 with the creation of the Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument.
Most of the homes and resorts on St. John are located near Cruz Bay or Coral Bay where shops, grocers, restaurants, and other services are located.
