Mongoose junction is a short walk from Cruz Bay in St. John. Great shopping and fun restaurants are all within the junction. We bought several souvenirs here and enjoyed dinner on two seperate evenings. Definitely must visit if on St. John.

Nice shopping area surrounded by a lush landscape, a nice restaurant, bar, deli, jewelry shop, ice cream shop, souvenirs. Easy to walk to the water taxi. An oasis of sorts. Repeatable.
