Coral Bay, St. John

4.5
#9 of 19 in Nature in St. John
Head to Coral Bay for an idyllic vacation away from the hustle and bustle of tourist hot spots. The local area remains relatively undeveloped for tourism, featuring just a handful of locally owned stores, bars, and restaurants. Take advantage of the unspoiled beaches and immerse yourself in clear, inviting waters. Bring a snorkeling kit to discover the local marine life, which includes graceful turtles and vibrantly colored fish. Alternatively, you can go hiking up the surrounding hills and take in panoramic views of the entire area. Coral Bay is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Caneel Bay Edition.
