Coral Bay is quiet but its getting more and more developed as is all of St. John. Disappointed with how crowded the beaches are in St. John these days.

My husband & I have been on vacation numerous times to St. John and having stayed in villas on the Cruz Bay side, Chocolate Hole side, Bordeaux Mountain side, we ABSOLUTELY prefer the Coral Bay side. The roads may be a little more winding and...More
Coral Bay has a completely different vibe from Cruz Bay. Coral Bay is very laid back whereas Cruz bay is very vibrant. We didn't really spend a lot of time there, just really drove through it and ate at a restaurant that was recommended to...More

Coral Bay is only 5 miles from St. Cruz Bay but will take you about 40 minutes to get to. It has a lot of winding roads but nothing too difficult on the way. You will pass many goats, cows, chickens and donkeys during your...More
