Fish Bay Real Estate Guide
Positioned along the South Shore of St. John, the Fish Bay neighborhood offers both beautiful views and a true sense of belonging to an established community. Residents and visitors alike commonly characterize the neighborhood atmosphere as family oriented, an apt designation given the many families that call this neighborhood home. Many of the properties here overlook stunning Fish Bay, Ditleff Point and distant St. Croix, which sits 40 miles to the south of St. John. Ditleff Point – an emerald green peninsula that juts out into the ocean – makes for a dramatic backdrop to any of the area’s homes or villas.
The area is just as short 15 to 20 minute drive to the main town of Cruz Bay on a winding, paved road that reveals captivating views around almost every bend. Cruz Bay features an eclectic array of restaurants, bars, boutiques, galleries and dive shops. Like many of St. John’s neighborhoods on the South Shore, Fish Bay is conveniently located and accessible yet it’s still the right amount of secluded to feel like a Caribbean getaway. A blend of rental villas and long-time residents makes this area an ideal place to own a vacation home or live full-time. Because of its central location, Fish Bay is a sought after vacation rental location, which is good news for those who only plan on living on the island part-time.
The bay itself shelters a few sailboats that enhance the area’s gorgeous sunsets with their idyllic silhouettes. While the rocky bay isn’t the most suitable for casual swims, it is a great place to start a kayaking or paddle boarding adventure and white sandy beaches can be found in neighboring bays. Bordering the Virgin Islands National Park provides access to the many great hiking trails that traverse the island’s coastlines and ridgelines, with paths often leading to secluded, sandy white beaches.
