We traveled to St John before the hurricane and are wishing a speedy recovery. Cinnamon Bay is beautiful, it can get full pretty early though. The snorkeling is really nice, lots of sea critters. It is a must if you are visiting!

The housing was kind of typical for a national park, but perhaps was is bit less upscale. We stayed on the concrete block housing, although we could have saved money and stayed in a tent. We also stayed at Maho Bay which was much nicer.

We were vacationing there last spring and summer. We met some friends and it is a real struggle for them because they survive and count on the tourism. We love that place and hope to be back soon!,

I have not been to any STJ beach at any time of day that resembles anything like this. most are deserted in the evening. Ive gone to the beach after dinner and have practically had the place to myself.
