Known as St. John's “Other Town,” Coral Bay is a small, tight knit community that is small and intimate.  There is some shopping available here at a small complex which features a boutique, dive shop, supermarket, and bakery, as well as a few souvenir shops scattered here and there.  

Specialty Shops

One of the popular speciality shops in the area is Bajo El Sol. This shopping venue is located in downtown Cruz Bay, 5.2 mi. West of central Coral Bay.

A second option is Best of Both Worlds, which is found less than a hundred yards (less than a hundred meters) from Bajo El Sol. You will be able to purchase the artwork that you see here, though many people choose to simply walk around the shop. Displayed pieces are all done by award winning artists who create such items as sculptures, glass work, and functional art that serve as reminders of the beautiful paradise that is the Caribbean. You'll be able to find them on North Shore Road.
