activities and attractions in US Virgin Islands Caribbean

St. John is the smallest of the three US Virgin Islands, but many people say that the island, nicknamed "Love Island", is the most beautiful.  Only nine miles long and three miles wide, two thirds of the island is National Park, donated to the US by multimillionaire Laurence Rockefeller in 1956.

St. John is best known for its beautiful, picture-perfect white sand beaches surrounded by turquoise waters that are so clear, you can see for what seems like miles down. Diving and snorkeling on St. John are some of the best in the world. Hiking trails abound on St. John, usually beginning at the top of a lush green mountain and ending at yet another pristine beach, with interesting historical ruins along the way.


Getting around the island is easy. Cruz Bay, the major town where the ferry docks is on the west end of the island facing Red Hook in St. Thomas. The ferry ride from Red Hook runs hourly and is only a quick twenty minute ride. 

St. John's selection of restaurants is second-to-none. It is amazingly hard to get anything other than a fabulous meal anywhere you go. There is something for everyone as far as dining goes: Everything from open-air breezy places for BBQ or a fresh fish sandwich to candlelit five-star cuisine at the top of a mountain. 

Shopping on St. John is also a treat. Many local artists have unique and gorgeous paintings, sculptures, jewelry and photographs for sale. There are numerous galleries in Cruz Bay and Coral Bay to meet any style or decor. Also, there are many clothing, food, furniture, camera and other local shops specializing in island favorites.

"Memories for Days"

Review submitted: July 15, 2014   Date of arrival: May 18, 2014

When your looking for the perfect vacation for family and friends the first thing you do is read reviews and even when your writing one of your own. After reading some I don't think it's necessary for me to bore folks with a list of pro's and con's but rather try to relay to whomever is reading and looking...don't try to hard because you've found it here at Vida de Mar. We stayed here with one other couple after spending "Magical" week on a Yacht in the BVI's which in itself is a dream come true vacation. We were fortunate enough to spend another week in this beautiful beach front Villa and it will stay in my thoughts the rest of my days. Vida is quiet and private yet close to town and is everything you'd expect from a first class vacation stay. Our room was "Parrot Suite" It was beautifully decorated and a "cool retreat" with an amazing outdoor shower and a perfect place for a good nap...a sound sleep...or just some personal time after a day of exploring the Island or relaxing on a killer beach or dancing the night away at funky beach bars and restaurants. We really had everything we desired with all the comforts of home and if there was a con I really can't remember what it was. personally I spent many hours floating in the pool or relaxing in the "Zen Spa" with a cocktail listening to Island music or the waves below and cooking up something freshly caught from town on the Barbie... What a life!! I believe no matter how many folks you choose to come here with, you will enjoy the sanctuary of your room...the modern and tastefully decorated "great room" for your time and gatherings and the overall layout of this Villa. Booking was easy...the price was right..and these folks want you to have your dream vacation. you can tell my wife and I had the vacation of a lifetime with great friends and "Memories for Days" We have not stopped talking about it since we returned home to Carmel, CA and now we just need to figure out how to return as soon as we can with more friends. I would not hesitate to choose Vida has the Island flavor you are dreaming about.

Awesome villa!

Review submitted: February 15, 2014   Date of arrival: January 26, 2014

This listing accurately describes the villa but until you see it you won't believe how beautiful it really is! We were in awe of the views and the beautiful property. Immediately when we arrived at the island we were greeted by a rep from the management company and taken to the villa. She described everything and answered all questions. This set our vacation off to the right start!
This villa is equipped with many extras for a comfortable stay. There were many spices, a nice welcome basket, numerous beach towels, bug spray (needed often) and much more. The rooms were clean and each has its own unique charm.
Another plus to staying here is the villa is close to the town of Cruz Bay. You need a vehicle but easily can get into town or anywhere. We used the villa as home base and did many side trips to awesome beaches and coves. Every day we snorkeled. Some of the best snorkeling is in the bay in front of the villa. It has a rocky entrance but once in the water the effort is worth it! If we are lucky then this will just be our first visit to Vida De Mar. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of paradise!

Beautiful Place!

Review submitted: July 17, 2013   Date of arrival: June 30, 2013

I highly recommend this Villa! It was very clean and comfortable. It has beautiful views and a beautiful private beach. Loved the Island with plenty to do, shopping and great restaurants. We toured all the beautiful beaches, and there are a lot of activities to do. We were fortunate to be there for the exciting and fun carnival. Looking forward to going back!
