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.
