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 area's more interesting specialty retailers is Bajo El Sol. This store is located in downtown Cruz Bay, 5.2 mi. West of central Coral Bay. Feel free to walk around the three room that make up the gallery. You will spot paintings, sculptures, pottery, jewelry, and other artistic styles like glass blowing. If you want to call before making reservations, do so at (340) 693-7070.

Another good option is Best of Both Worlds, which is located within a quick walk 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 will be able to find them 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. Visitors will find them at 27 Southside Road.
