Today I am sharing with you our first night on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI)! From my last travel post you may have read that we spent the first six days of our vacation last month sailing in the British Virgin Isles (BVI). We rented a sailboat from Moorings
on the Island of Tortola and sailed around to a different island each day. You can read my previous posts here and discover our sailing itinerary.
After returning the sailboat to Moorings on Tortola around 10am, we took a cab across the island to catch the 12:15pm ferry to St. John, USVI ($40/adult and you can see the ferry schedule
). It started to rain the moment we boarded the ferry and if this happens to you, I highly recommend boarding the ferry quickly to grab one of the limited seats indoors below deck. Although we were one of the first onboard, I hate going below deck because I tend to get super seasick… but in this instance I regret the decision not to because we got totally soaked haha. Oh well… at least it makes for a good (and memorable) story.
We went through customs pretty quickly and then took a cab to over our hotel, Caneel Bay (PS I love that all the cabs on St. John are open air seating in the back of trucks)! Anyway, Caneel Bay is incredible. The resort is set on 170-acres of lush beauty with picturesque beaches full of wildlife (wild donkeys and deer roam the property everywhere you look). There is also plenty to do at the resort from snorkeling with sea turtles to kayaking, playing tennis, stand-up-paddling and shopping at their on-property boutique (they carry all your essentials from Vince to books and chic beachwear and towels).
We stayed in a beachfront room on Scott Beach, which was my favorite private beach on the resort. It was so quiet and relaxing – and the sunset views were spectacular.
Anyway, after marveling at the sunset, we headed over to dinner at Zozo’s which is a really amazing restaurant perched on top of the resort’s old sugar mill ruins. Everything was delicious!
Well, that’s it for day one on St. John! Be sure to stay tuned for day two and catch a sneak peak on my Instagram!
