Make a vacation rental in Coral Bay, Saint John you home away from home

Coral Bay is set on the southeastern coast of the beautiful US Virgin Island of Saint John. It’s a picturesque setting with rugged hills in the backdrop, overlooking a sheltered harbour that was once the main settlement on the island. Around Coral Bay vacation accommodation you’ll find world-class beaches, beautiful inland scenery and some interesting historical sights.

Things to do in Coral bay, Saint John

The waters around Coral Bay self-catering accommodation are crystal clear and perfect for activities like diving and snorkeling. Just a short drive down the coast is Saltpond Bay, a rarely frequented white sandy beach, also perfect for snorkeling and offering walking trails to the salt pond that gives the beach its name.

A beautiful historical site to be found moments from vacation accommodation in Coral Bay is the Emmaus Moravian Church, which dates to the 18th Century and is an excellent state of preservation. Other important sights on the island include the ruins of the Annaberg Sugar Plantation, which was a key location for the production of rum and whisky in colonial times.

Just inland from Coral Bay vacation rentals is the famous Virgin Islands National Park. This large expanse of preserved nature covers more than half of the entire island and can be explored on foot via walking trails, taking in spectacular scenery and a great diversity of nature, with 140 bird species and almost 750 plant species packed into a relatively small area. Also worthwhile here for history buffs is the lovely Reef Bay Trail, this route takes walkers past a number of historic plantations, as well some stunning petroglyph rock carvings.

Places to visit on holiday in Coral Bay, Saint John

The beaches on the island around Coral Bay vacation accommodation are considered among the best in the world. Perhaps none more so than Trunk Bay on the island’s northwest coast, which often features on top-ten lists. The snorkeling here is also fantastic, and at both this beach and neighboring Cinnamon Bay there’s plenty of information provided to help you identify the beautiful wildlife.

Weather in Coral Bay, Saint John

On holiday at Coral Bay self-catering accommodation you can expect a tropical climate – this makes for consistently hot weather, in the low-30s throughout the year. The wettest weather arrives between September and November, while the first few months of the year are generally considered the driest.

Cheap flights to Coral Bay, Saint John

If you’re heading to Coral Bay vacation rentals from the UK then you’ll first need to fly to the US mainland – you’ll be able to fly to neighbouring Saint Thomas’ Cyril E. King Airport (STT) from a number of US destinations via American Airlines, Delta or US Air Lines.

Incredible stay on St.John at Buddha Garden

5 of 5
First, I want to say how wonderful the island of St.John is for a relaxing vacation. Now the only way to improve on this was to find a place as special as St.John and we did! Buddha Garden is decorated in exotic Asian decor that was purchased by the owners on their many trips abroad. It is better than the pictures and at the end of the road so it is very private. There are two large bedrooms with attached bathrooms with walk-in showers, a great kitchen with a koi pond outside, a living room area, many neat dining areas and places to read including the roof deck. Good for yoga too. The views are something truly special. You look out on several of the British Virgin Islands, the east end of St.John and a beautiful bay below where you can hear the waves. There is always a great breeze too. We rented a jeep to travel to the numerous beaches and could not believe all the sea life we saw. No jet skiing so very relaxing. The owners Lolita and Ric were extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. We wish we had had a chance to talk to them about all their travels. Lolita provided us with a list of less known places to snorkel, their favorite places to eat and where to grocery shop. There is a market a few miles away (Lily's Gourmet Market) that had all we needed, we did shop once in town (Starfish) too. When we ate out the food was wonderful (Shipwreck, Skinny Legs...) and the servings were large so we made two meals from most places. Before coming we read about it being expensive to buy food and eat out but when you consider there is no sales tax or resort tax it worked out about the same as other island trips we have made. I saw on another review were some people stayed with out a jeep and you could do that but for us it was much easier to have transportation. My husband went into town twice to go out scuba diving (Low Key- which he said was the best group he has ever dove with) and we could go places when ever we wanted. We spent a great day on the "Baddy Kitty" that took us to several BVI (you need your passport) to swim, eat and have a drink. It could not have been a better trip. Like islands in the Caribbean in St.John you should be conscious about saving water and there is a water collection system at this home. I wish I could upload some of my pictures to better show Buddha Garden and it's views. We are hopeful to return again to say at this beautiful home.
