We had already been to St Thomas so we decided to go to St John. The problem was there was a lot traffic. Same drill - in an open air taxi with others who also wanted to go to the ferry. It took almost an hour to get there so we made the 10am ferry which sat for almost 30 minutes before crossing. We knew that we had to get the 3pm ferry back if we had a chance of making it back to the ship by 4:30. I had read on the boards that you could hike to the beach from the ferry. I didn't realize that it was an actual hike! Luckily we wore our running shoes. It was a good 30 minute hike up and down a rocky trail - actually a really nice hike if you were ready for it. The beach was called Honeymoon Beach and it was beautiful. Not much there - just a little shack - perfect. I asked one of the workers if we could catch a taxi back but no, there is no way to get in or out except by boat or hiking. So we had to add the hike into our calculations of getting back to the ferry. Walked around the little town but we were nervous about getting a seat on the ferry. It was easy to get a cab back to the port and the traffic wasn't as bad in the afternoon. Read Less

Got tired of all the noise, crowds and hipe. Standing in line in the hot sun. So gave up and went back to the ship. Too much stuff to buy, too commercial.

We've been to St. Kitts before so opted not to take an excursion, but now wish we had. Festival going on that day and everything was closed. If we had known, we would have signed up for an excursion. One we did a few years ago was plantation and island tour. It is a beautiful island and really enjoyed this the first time. Read Less

Again, was it our bad not to do an excursion? The island looks a little run down. Went to Emerald bay for swim and lunch. Pretty location, but right next to an airport, so you will hear, frequently, flights taking off just about over ... Read More
Again, was it our bad not to do an excursion? The island looks a little run down. Went to Emerald bay for swim and lunch. Pretty location, but right next to an airport, so you will hear, frequently, flights taking off just about over your head. So it takes away a little from the 'island/isolated' feel. Reasonable price to rent chairs and umbrellas. Read Less

Rode horses because my wife said we were going to. We own horses and this is what she wanted to do so we did it. Good experience and would recommend it to any level of rider.

Massages and facials at Pam's Wellness Center on Valley Church Beach.Trip Advisor referral.Check her out on Facebook also. Took the local bus #22, $1.50 each, easy walking distance to bus terminal from pier, bus leaves once it is full.Cottage is located right on the beach, Pam is wonderful, professional and very friendly.Highly recommend Pam and this gorgeous beach.Plenty of options, crowded near beach bar, deserted further away. Fresh coconut water $5.Umbrella $10. Brought our own blow up floaties-perfect day floating and swimming.. Lots of options at this beach, paddle boarding, jet skies. not bothered by vendors, say no thank you once, not asked again The service at the local beach bar is SLOW with attitude.Relax and enjoy, you are on vacation.
