Nobody said it was easy, but everyone will tell you it’s worth it. Taking a trip to St. John Island? You’ll be flying into the Cyril E. King International Airport on St. Thomas and taking a cab to one of two ferries that will take you across the channel. The whole ordeal, from baggage claim to pulling into the driveway of your villa in your rental car will take roughly at least 3 hours.
Throw-in a little grocery shopping, and you’ve got yourself a half day, easy. Same is true for your return trip. You could stay on St. Thomas and save yourself a lot of time. Seriously, why make the schlepp? Well, the secret is in the schlepp, actually, as the challenge keeps many away. Not that Love City doesn’t welcome all to her shores, but clearly, there’s not enough room for everyone, so thankfully she’s a wee out of the way. Only those willing to make the trip without complaint are worthy of experiencing the Island of St. John. Be worthy!
