Love City

The gateway to the island of Saint John, Cruz Bay represents the island's largest town, port, and commercial center. The colorful buildings hugging the hills around the port house relaxed restaurants, a few bustling bars, and numerous pleasant shops, all within easy walking distance of each other. The place to come to arrange hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling trips around the island and its waters, Cruz Bay features a large number of tour companies and ferry connections to other areas of the US and British Virgin Islands. Holidays in Cruz Bay may be primarily focused on where it allows you to get to, but it certainly provides a comfortable and entertaining place to return to each evening. Cruz Bay is in St. John.

Where to stay in Cruz Bay

Vacation condos and villas make up the majority of accommodations in Cruz Bay, with these privately owned places to stay offering guests plenty of space and independence. The area surrounding the local ferry terminal serves as a particularly popular spot to stay, as does Bay Street just to the south. Look to stay just north of town for easy access to the nearby national park, which has some particularly scenic beaches.
