Got a very pricey $75 parking ticket on my first day in St John after I followed the lead of others and parked by the side of the road at jumbie beach. One person looked like a local so I figured it was okay.... Not!! Unless you can park your vehicle by the road with your tires completely off the pavement, don't do it. Also, outside some of the parking lots along the road are signs clearly stating there is no parking. Not so for Jumbie and some others. My advise is to get where you are going early and get a parking space in the lot.
