They call me John. St. John.
The US Virgin Island of St. John offers a pristine retreat for nature lovers and is just exquisite!
But wait! Did you know…
St. John does not have an airport. You will fly into the Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas (airport code: STT) and then continue to St. John via boat / ferry.
There are two ferry departure points on St. Thomas for the passenger ferry to St. John; one is in Charlotte Amalie and the other is in Red Hook.
The ferry terminal in Charlotte Amalie is used for ferries going to the British Virgin Islands – however the ferry for St John does not leave from this terminal.
The car barge from St. Thomas to St. John departs only from Red Hook.
Oh, and remember this darlings…
St. John (Virgin Islands) and St. John’s (the capital city in Antigua) are not one and the same place. Antigua is not part of the USVI, and is in fact 210 miles away from St. John.
Mixing them up can be a pricey mistake if you have to change your flight or cancel hotel reservations. So remember the island in the USVI is St. John – without an “s”
Have fun, be safe, wear sunscreen.
