Cruz Bay

— 7 nights

Love City

The gateway to the island of Saint John, Cruz Bay represents the island's largest town, port, and commercial center.
We've included these beaches for you: Trunk Bay Beach and Maho Bay Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Reef Bay Trail and Ram Head Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Salt Pond Bay (in Virgin Islands National Park) and Hansen Bay Beach (in East End). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Jumbie Beach, explore the activities along Francis Bay, enjoy the sand and surf at Caneel Bay Beach, and look for gifts at Kro-gu.

To see where to stay, reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Cruz Bay trip itinerary maker website.

Phoenix, USA to Cruz Bay is an approximately 12.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Mountain Standard Time (MST) to Atlantic Standard Time (AST) is 3 hours. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Phoenix in May: highs in Cruz Bay hover around 87°F, while lows dip to 77°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.

With two thirds of St. John designated as a national park, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands is also the least developed, lacking an airport and cruise ship docks. Although well connected to its more commercialized neighbor, St. Thomas, St. John makes it easy to get away from crowds and enjoy pristine white-sand beaches. On a trip to St. John you can spend your days snorkeling or kayaking, explore the verdant hills of the national park, or head to Cruz Bay, the islands largest town, for excellent dining and shopping.
