We will be taking holiday on St. John next spring and we were looking to do a day trip to one of the B.V. Islands. Recommendations?
That is a tough question, because the three main islands are all so different from each other.
Anegada - for completely different topography; excellent snorkeling; and barbecued lobster, if you can get it. Getting to/from Anegada is one day will be the most challenging, but it is quite unusual.
I would vote for Virgin Gorda based on the time frame. There are a lot of good restaurants there and you have the Bath's which are a MUST see while in the BVI. Everything else would be quite time consuming (lots of taxi time and beach hopping). In V.G you could take a quick taxi ride to the Bath's, have lunch at the Top of the Bath's and get the most out of your day.
If you were not staying on St Johns I would say to go to Jost Van Dyke, but since you are, I would recommend that you go to the Baths on Virgin Gorda or do a day trip on a boat that encompasses a couple of stops. The Baths are really different and you will not find anything like it on the other islands. Jost however has really beautiful beaches, however, so does St John so that is why I would not recommend that.
