Ut oh, the secret’s getting out…
Well it looks like our little slice of heaven may soon be getting a flurry of new visitors because it just appeared on the home page of the New York Times! How fancy is that?!!
The New York Times printed a list of 52 places to go in 2016, and you know who is number four on the list – Coral Bay! Here’s what they had to say:
It’s a big world out there. From ancient temples to crystalline waters, here are our top destinations to visit this year.
4. Coral Bay, St. John: Visit the US Virgin Island’s quiet corner before big development
The beaches are less crowded, the emphasis is on local over commercial, and the people share a friendly sense of neighborhood pride. Among the town’s attractions: monthly full-moon parties at Miss Lucy’s, and a Thanksgiving “Thankspigging” pot luck pig roast hosted by the community at Skinny Legs, where the eating often swells into a singalong. But this quiet community may soon change. Visit before a proposed outlet mall and megamarina, expected to engulf the bay, transforms the laid-back atmosphere of this little corner of the United States Virgin Islands.
I’m happy that Coral Bay made the list. It shows just how special this part of the island is.
