Shopping in Coral Bay

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 more interesting specialty retailers in the area is Bajo El Sol. This store is found in downtown Cruz Bay, 5.2 mi. West of central Coral Bay. Bajo El Sol has taken it upon themselves to re-vamp their gallery by opening up the rooms so that performances on small stages can be held with room for a sitting audience, while also still exhibiting the locally created art on the walls. Throughout different months of the year, Bajo El Sol also has different themes in which the art shown will all focus on. They're at 528 18-3, Mongoose Junction.

Another option is Best of Both Worlds, which is found less than a hundred yards (less than a hundred meters) from Bajo El Sol. They are open daily from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. They're on North Shore Road.

Donald Schnell Studio: There are also hand blown glass, ceramic and stained glass pieces that were carefully selected to complement the original creations in the studio. Life on St. John moves at a relaxed temp, so guests should take their time visiting the studio. Find them at 27 Southside Road.
