Owner description: Find out all about St. John and the Virgin Islands National Park at this major source of information on sightseeing, recreation and accommodations.

A lot of people who visit St John, do so primarily for hiking within the Virgin Islands National Park (covering 60% of the island).

Situated just a short walk away from the harbour, the visitor centre in Cruz Bay is a good starting point for your trip. From here, you can get maps and information about all the available trails on the island. You can also get a cute little stamp for visiting (which is more for kids, but I got one anyway :D). Recommended, especially if it's your first visit to the island.

Stop by here for park maps and park information. The park store is where you purchase tickets for the reef bay trail hike. Souvenirs are best found in the park store located in mongoose junction.

Stopping by the visitor's center (which is a very short walk from the Cruz Bay harbor) is well worth it. There's no admission charge and you can arm yourself with everything you'll need for a fabulous visit to the Virgin Islands National Park. There are also some small exhibits together with a gift store where you can pick up some souvenirs. Don't forget to get the two National Parks passport stamps!
