The housing was kind of typical for a national park, but perhaps was is bit less upscale. We stayed on the concrete block housing, although we could have saved money and stayed in a tent. We also stayed at Maho Bay which was much nicer.

One of my favorite beaches on St John. This gem has gift shops, limited groceries, restaurant and a mini archive building on the beach.

We were vacationing there last spring and summer. We met some friends and it is a real struggle for them because they survive and count on the tourism. We love that place and hope to be back soon!,
