Acivities for Solo Travelers on St. John

Exciting Activities for Solo Travelers on St. John

When it comes to solo travel in the Caribbean, the island of St. John is a fantastic destination.

St. John is the least developed of the US Virgin Islands and the majority of the island is a lush and pristine protected national park, providing lots of opportunities for wildlife spotting and trekking. It is also more affordable than the other islands and has a laid back feeling. St. John is ideal for solo travelers as there are plenty of great active and relaxing activities to enjoy. The local atmosphere here on St. John is friendly and welcoming; making friends with locals and other travelers is easy!

Not traveling solo? We also have St. John information for couples, families and groups.

St. John Beaches

There are more than 35 beaches on the island of St. John, each offering its own unique advantages. Trunk Bay is the main tourist beach on the island, while Honeymoon Beach is a smaller and more tranquil stretch of sand. If you love snorkelling, Hawksnest Bay or Waterlemon Cay are the ideal St. John beaches for you.

Take a PADI Course on St. John

You can learn to dive on the island of St. John, as there are many PADI courses available. The island has many fantastic diving spots and the clear warm tropical water offers many opportunities to see coral and tropical fish.

Visit the Catherineberg Sugar Mill Ruins

The Catherineberg Sugar Mill Ruins are the site of a sugar and rum factory from the 18th century. It was also used as the headquarters of the Amina warriors during the slave revolt in 1733 when the African slaves took over the island for six months. Admission to this St. John historic site is free.

Explore Coral Bay

Located at the far end of the island, Coral Bay is a peaceful and laid back community that offers a glimpse into what St. John would have been like before the tourists arrived. It is worth taking a day trip here so that you can dine at some of the authentic local restaurants and enjoy the quiet pace of St. John life. Go ahead, pretend you live here!

Snorkelling in Hurricane Hole

This gorgeous snorkelling spot is protected by mangrove trees that grow all around it and under the water you will find a diverse range of colourful tropical fish. You’ll see barracuda, starfish, brightly-hued sea anemone and much more at this unbeatable St. John destination
