About St. John and Serendip

St John US Virgin Islands

St. John is truly a magical, wonderful, laid back, beautiful, serene little piece of paradise. With half the island National Parklands and no airport our blend of West Indian culture under the US Flag (no passport needed!) lends itself to a wide spectrum of residents as well as visitors.

Known for its upscale, multi-million dollar vacation villa rentals with spectacular, sweeping views, and world renowned eco campgrounds, there is no island comparable in the Caribbean. Words like luxury, natural beauty, laid back, pristine, and low key blend in and out of stories and vocabularies to define St. John's magic.

St John is also one of the best destination wedding locations in the Caribbean, with its pristine beaches and spectacular views. Our island ambiance is perfect for honeymooners as well as families who want to enjoy the true, laid back style of island life.

St. John is very small compared to most islands (28 square miles) with only three major roads that connect to many smaller roads; but with our mountainous terrain, it can take almost an hour to get from Cruz Bay to far East End. Most of our beaches are easily reached by car or taxi, and then exploring far remote beaches can only enhance your island adventure.
