Coral Bay
St. John

Visit the U.S. Virgin Island’s quiet corner before big development.

The beaches are less crowded, the emphasis is on local over commercial, and the people share a friendly sense of neighborhood pride. Among the town’s attractions: monthly full-moon parties at Miss Lucy’s, and a Thanksgiving “Thankspigging” pot luck pig roast hosted by the community at Skinny Legs, where the eating often swells into a singalong. But this quiet community may soon change. Visit before a proposed outlet mall and mega-marina, expected to engulf the bay, transforms the laid-back atmosphere of this little corner of the United States Virgin Islands.

As a full time resident of Coral Bay for 18 years I can say on behalf of myself and most of my neighbors, Coral Bay – we love you just the way you are!
