For the third time in a week, New York media are touting St. John.
The New York Times puts its stamp of approval not only on the island generally but, specifically, Coral Bay.
"Coral Bay is about as remote as it gets in the United States Virgin Islands," says the paper in an article headlined 14 Ways to Ditch the Crowds.
"The bay’s deep and well-sheltered natural harbor, appropriately named Hurricane Hole, doesn’t offer much in the way of a beach. But its mangroves are overlooked for exploring, whether in a kayak, by paddle board or with a snorkel and mask."
The article then recommends Skinny Legs for a burger and Shipwreck Landing for conch fritters and mahi-mahi.
Other "ways" to beat the crowds include spots on St. Kitts, St. Martin and Cancun.

My property manager was just mentioning coral-bay the other day. I haven’t really looked into it much before but it seems like an excellent getaway.
Oh no! A sorta well kept secret is getting out.
Are Coral Bay and Hurricane Hole one in the same? Not to be picky or too critical of this very nice mention of St. John, but, strictly speaking, isn’t Hurricane Hole separate from Coral Bay, or only just a part of it, along with Coral Harbor and Round Bay?
It’s beautiful !
Yes and going on a pontoon boat through Hurricane Hole and snorkeling in the mangroves is just awesome. Check it out.
