St. John Makes 10 Best Bucket List Beaches

Trunk pano

St. John recently made USA Today’s list for the 10 Best Bucket List Beaches. Any guesses which one made the cut???

All of them! (Well all of the ones in the National Park that is!) Here’s what they had to say about it:

“From tropical forests to an underwater snorkeling trail, this 19-square-mile park offers visitors a chance to explore one of the Caribbean’s best-preserved natural areas. The park covers more than half of the island, and includes the popular Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay beaches, which rent water sports gear, and have guest facilities. Elsewhere there’s kayaking, sailing, hiking and camping.

Bucket list tip: For a splurge, book a stay at the luxury Caneel Bay Resort, which is surrounded by the park. It was developed by Laurance Rockefeller, who donated land for the park in the 1950s.”

  1. Just returned last night from St. John. Agree that all the beaches are stunning. Loved finding the hidden beaches. Great snorkeling at Maho Bay, Salt Pind Bay, Leinster Bay, Limetree Cove, Great Lameshur Bay. Stayed at Westin which was rather poor service and two star rooms . Will stay at Caneel next time. Must do the National Park tour for $30 worth it.

  2. Just returned from 9 wonderful days at the villa Altagracia! My 12th trip to St. John, the absolutely BEST island, and I’ve been to 31….. In the water every day for hours, swimming, snorkeling. Loved High Tide, Banana Tree, Beach Bar, Fish Trap, Skinny Legs, and best breakfast in the world is at Jake’s! Of course, ice cream everyday from St. John Scoops! Check out
    our views from our deck at Altagracia, truly heaven!!!! Can’t wait to come back!
