Menu Close Use It to Plan Your St. John Vacation

Hello everyone, and happy Friday! Today I wanted to point out some features here on that you may have missed since we launched back in September. There are lots of items here that will help you plan your St. John vacation.

Let’s start with how to get here. You will notice in the Important Links section in our sidebar a link that says “How to Get to St. John.” This link tells you everything you need to know from flying into St. Thomas to taxiing to one of the three ferry options (Red Hook, Crown Bar or Charlotte Amalie) and then the actual ferries or barges, which you will need to take to get to St. John. It even discusses the customs process at the airport. Click here to read How to Get to St. John. You can also find this information under our Info tab in the Island Tidbits menu.

Want to see what St. John looks like at this very moment? We have more than 20 live-streaming webcams over on our Webcams page. We’ve included webcams from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay and beyond. We even included the Soggy Dollar Bar’s webcam too. You can see all of our webcams at

Interested in watching some videos recently taken here on St. John? I’ve uploaded 10 videos so far. There are beach videos – Trunk Bay, Honeymoon Beach & Saltwell Bottom. There are also GoPro videos I have taken while driving around the island. Want to see exactly what it looks like to drive from Cruz Bay to Maho Bay? Well you can! Check out that and all of our videos at

Now let’s talk Logistics. I’ve created two custom maps. One shows you exactly where our restaurants are located, and the other shows basic logistics like parking lots (paid & free), dumpsters (we drop our garbage off here), public restrooms and more. One thing to note: There is a Coco Jim’s marker incorrectly placed in Cruz Bay. That is on the public Google map, and I do not have the ability to change it, although I did notify Google. Coco Jim’s is correctly placed on my map (purple marker). It’s located on Route 10 beside Mid Way. We plan to add more categories to the Logistics map soon, including laundromats, ATMs, etc., so please check back often for updates.

In addition to all of this helpful information, I also post stories daily that will also help you plan your St. John vacation. I enjoy writing about hiking trails, history, restaurant openings, re-openings and more. There are so many great things happening here, and so many cool stories from the past, and I am excited to share it all with you.
