Check out Cruz bat for quick eateries and local shopping. There isn't much else to do here but it's a nice stop on your way to one of the other amazing beaches on the island.

We asked directions and information regarding services in the location of our in. We felt like we were intruding on the 2 women working there, who seemed to be more interested in their own conversation.

We want to get a parking permit and then do the Lind Pond trail and go to several beaches. We wanted to go early but I see they do not open until 11!!! Is this true?

It is my understanding that they are open 8:00 am to 4:30 pm every day

While we visit St. John's, I will need access to the internet in order to take a test, is the Visitor Center the best place for internet service? Library? Or where do you suggest?

Hello, Looking for an all day cruise with snorkeling, drinks, and maybe lunch? Who do you recommend that picks up or leaves from St John? We are staying on the island, for the first time, the week after 4th of July. I would like more of a party boat feel than a private group. Any help you can offer would be very helpful!
