Sundays on St. John are meant for strolling. Take a walk through the beautiful Virgin Islands National Park and be apart of nature. With dozens of well-maintained hiking trails, you never know what the day will bring and what you will see.
Island wildlife on St. John includes the unexpected – from a sly mongoose stealing your sandwich to deer swimming deftly across the bay – St. John animals are not all confined to the bars! Favorites of visitors and residents alike include local donkeys that roam wild around Coral Bay and throughout the National Park, where much of the island’s wildlife calls home.
Listening and watching for birds is a full-time hobby on St. John, from majestic pelicans to petite hummingbirds and everything in between. With roughly 24 square miles of land and 100+ miles of irregular coastline, tropical shorebirds are abundant on St. John.
Identifying local plants and trees correctly is a skill a few hone intently and care to share, which the rest of us appreciate greatly! From oh-so-many palm varieties to the sweet smelling flowers of the fragrant frangipani tree, St. John is like a circus of nature’s sights and sounds. The show starts with a simple Sunday stroll, and you always have the best seat in the house!
