If you want to leisurely explore this laid-back tropical island along with its beaches, trails, and historical preservation sites at your own pace – rent a car. It is to your advantage to have a rental car on St. John or you could miss many of the best parts of the island. Staying in a villa increases the need. The majority of private homes and villas are outside the town and exquisitely located for seclusion and views not for convenience. Other services offered include ferry services and guided island tours.
