St. John General Information

St. John USVI

In the years since tourism took over much of the Caribbean economy, few islands can claim to have left nearly all of their tropical land undeveloped - except St. John USVI. The smallest of the United States Virgin Islands at 20 square miles (53 square km), fully two thirds of St. John USVI has been protected as a lush national park. St. John USVI's 5,000 residents share this natural playground, and their desire to retain the island's natural beauty has created a sense of community on St. John USVI that any visitor is bound to sense. This is not to say that St. John USVI is lacking cultural variety; the island is home to a smorgasbord of ethnic backgrounds - including African, British, Danish, and East Indian - each of which plays its own part in the mosaic of St. John USVI through music, food, dress, and celebration.
