The most obvious one to visit is Cinnamon Bay. Since this beach can be found a short distance from the villa complex, you really won't have to journey far to enjoy it. Located on the northern coast of St. John, Cinnamon Bay provides a long strip of white, sandy beach, surrounded by the natural foliage of the Virgin Islands National Park. A nature trail with information signs on tropical foilage is just across from the campground and begins at the ruins of a sugar mill. Outdoor venues can have a large number of people and amenities, and this beach is no different: With restrooms, showers, and picnic tables on site vacationers will have all they need for a day outside.

If you were hoping to visit a less quiet part of the coast, consider nearby Cruz Bay Beach where there are plenty of opportunities for activities and being social. While it may not be the largest or most tropical beach on the island, this beach remains one of the more popular spots to spend a day. This is because it will likely be the first beach you see as you approach St. John on the ferry from St. Thomas.

If you're looking for a chance to see something a little different, Par Force Estate Ruins might be what the doctor ordered. This colonial estate was in use since at least 1721 when it was split up into four smaller estates; though the entire property was united after just over forty years. It would continue to be fully operation until around 1850 when it was abandoned.
