One of the most unique shopping experiences in the Virgin Islands is on St. John at Wharfside Village Shopping Center -- not because of the shops inside or the always friendly service, but the view. The shopping center looks out on the water, and you can catch glimpses of the comings and goings of the boats as you pass between shops.
Set at the base of the ferry dock on Cruz Bay, Wharfside Village is a collection of buildings colored in bright blues, greens, and reds, with terra cotta roofs, tiled walkways, colonial-style shutters, and bouganvilleas overflowing throughout. Within the shops you'll find a varied collection of clothing, jewelry, home goods, leather products, crystal, fragrances, souvenirs, and more.
Located near the middle of downtown Cruz Bay, Wharfside Village happily welcomes local residents and travelers who are exploring and shopping in this neighborhood or nearby. Even if you aren't staying particularly close, you are free to stop by.
There are a variety of other miscellaneous retailers nearby to choose from. Take a look at the table below to find out more about some examples of additional shops within reach of this location.
