Coral Bay used to be a hopping tourist destination, but these days it is a sleepy little town that attracts people trying to get away from the crowds. The fact that the only way to get to the island is by boat certainly helps the cause.
The Cyril E. King Airport near Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas is the most accessible airport to the island of St. John, and thus travelers who are planning their vacation in Coral Bay. Capable of accommodating jets that are as large as Boeing 747s, St. Thomas welcomes flights from several cities along the east coast United States as well as regional airports such as the San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport on the island of Puerto Rico.
Travelers from Canada and the U.S. will connect through Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Boston, Newark, New York City, Philadelphia, and Charlotte, which offer direct flights; while those from Europe, South America, the Middle East, and the Caribbean will typically make connecting flights with San Juan.

If you want to “get away from it all” you'll have to do a little extra work to make it happen. This includes flying to a nearby island then sailing the rest of the way to Coral Bay. Fortunately, the process is pretty straightforward and even those who don't travel regularly shouldn't have much trouble making the arrangements.
