Island Hop

1.04.2016


 Turquoise waters, pristine beaches and authentic Caribbean fare are just part of St. John's allure.

I spent the past five days in St Thomas, ringing the New Year with my sister, her husband, and another couple we’re friends with in New York. And what a fab few days it’s been! Let’s be honest, I’ve never met a beach that I didn’t love, but the USVI’s were full of beaches that I won’t soon forget. Crystal-clear, turquoise water. Immaculate, pillowy sand. Coral reefs just offshore, bustling with aquatic life….

On this particular day we woke up early to catch the morning ferry from our island to St John, a mere 20 mins away by boat. Once we landed, we stopped at a cute shopping center to load up on coffee and egg sandwiches for breakfast (plus beer and wine to hold us over until lunch) then set forth on the steep, winding coastal road leading North through the jungle, in search of the most beautiful beaches. A lack of parking forced us to forego Trunk Bay, one of the larger and most popular destinations, but it didn’t take us long to find an alternate in the form of Cinnamon Bay, where we happily remained for most of the afternoon.

After what seemed like endless hours of snorkeling and relaxing, we packed up our stuff then asked a few local taxi drivers where we might be able to find the best Caribbean food on-island. Their response? De' Coal Pot, which we found nestled in a colorful side street just in town, and where we indulged on local favorites like stewed mutton, whole snapper, and curried goat, thrown back with a few Red Stripes and some delicious plantains and sides. As the sun receded we walked barefoot through a few of the tiny beach bars bordering the port, then packed up to catch the last ferry back, fully saturated with sun, sand and tasty local cuisine. I couldn’t have imagined a better start to the New Year!
