St John, US Virgin Islands Romantic Honeymoon

Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, St John offers some of the best snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming, underwater photography, sailing and hiking in the Caribbean – perfect for active couples celebrating a honeymoon or romantic getaway holiday.

St John is the smallest and most pristine of the three main US Virgin Islands. Blessed with lush tree-covered hills and mountains fringed by pristine white-sand beaches, St John offers a welcome escape from the crowds of historic St Croix and bustling St Thomas – more renowned for its great duty-free shopping, flashy 5-star resorts and numerous bars and restaurants.

At Trunk Bay, follow the Caribbean’s most famous underwater snorkelling trail, which flows past rich coral gardens teeming with rainbow-coloured fish. Or choose to sunbathe, swim and snorkel on several more secluded white-sand beaches in nearby Caneel Bay.

To best appreciate the island, hire an open-sided four-wheel drive jeep and follow winding mountain roads to secluded coves and bush-covered ruins of 18th century sugar cane plantations, such as the Annaberg Ruins, just east of Trunk Bay. In Cruz Bay, St John’s small capital, stroll past charming pastel-painted homes and buildings that are home to some of the island's best shopping, eating and nightlife attractions.
