New Retail & Beach Rental Shop Opens in Coral Bay

Leah Hanson owns Pirate’s Cove with her husband Colin.

A great new shop opened up in Coral Bay earlier this month, and I think you’re all going to love it.

The Pirate’s Cove is a new retail and beach rental shop that sells everything from eco-friendly St. John-inspired apparel and gifts to snorkel gear and other beach rentals. The shop is owned by Leah and Colin Hanson, owners of Flyaway Charters. It’s located right on Route 10 in Coral Bay (Centerline Road), just past the fire station and across the street from Skinny Legs.

“Environmental protection, priority and preservation, and historical awareness are very important to us as individuals and also as a company,” Leah told me last Friday at Pirate’s Cove. “We saw this as an opportunity to further promote those goals and initiatives, while also meeting face-to-face with people who may be interested in learning more about the island, the ocean that surrounds us and the rich history here on St. John. You will see that in the products we chose to offer at Pirate’s Cove.”

Pirate’s Cove sells everything from eco-friendly clothing including hats and t-shirts to historical books and more. Some of their t-shirts are even screen printed on Silver Cloud, an 1899 three-masted schooner which is the oldest ship anchored in Coral Bay harbor. The shop sells a variety of reef-safe items like sunscreens and lip balms too. They also rent a variety of beach gear, including snorkel sets, Neso tents and more. Check out a few pics:

Looks great, right?

Pirate’s Cove is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (ish). It is open on the weekends by appointment only.
