St John- A virgin

Trunk Bay

Trunk Bay

St. John, St. Croix and St. Thomas which is known as U.S. virgin islands is a great destination since they belong to the  United States. You don’t have to worry about passports, and the U.S. dollar is accepted there.  These are three very distinct islands, all with different history. Recently, CBS news had a story of  a St johns national park and now I know why it’s so expensive to stay there.   St Johns is the most expensive of the three  islands since there is limited real estate because 2/3rds of it is a national park.  The Rockefeller family saw the development that was  happening  in St.Thomas and did not want St. John’s  landscape to change.    Laurence  Rockefeller (son of John D. Rockefeller) donated  5000 acres of land  where he had a resort called Caneel Bay in 1952.   Caneel Bay is still a luxurious resort but you are stilled surrounded by park land.   Since I was in St.Thomas , I took the ferry  to St. John’s where we went to Trunk Bay beach .  I vividly remember going through a park to get one of the most gorgeous beaches . Thanks to the Rockefeller’s , St. Johns stays green.
