The sea, sand, and sun have long defined the gorgeous vacation destination of the island of St. John. Settled pristinely into the Caribbean Sea, this island is the smallest of the three that make up the U.S. Virgin Islands, but perhaps the most dynamic when it comes to opportunities to encounter nature in a thrilling fashion. St. John is a place where dolphins jump and mangroves, tropical fish and coral reef abound. Between the vibrant colors, tropical atmosphere and amazing wildlife, it’s not hard to see why travelers make this an annual destination to visit. For those with a passion for finding tucked away locales that make for incredible places to spend a day near the water, Hansen Bay in St. John is a must-stop on your St. John Itinerary.
