Destination guide

Enjoy a Caribbean getaway to Estate Fish Bay

Nestled along the southern shoreline of Saint John, the smallest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Estate Fish Bay offers a picturesque setting for sun-drenched Caribbean getaways. Steps from most Estate Fish Bay vacation rentals lies a white-sand beach framed by shallow waters that often teem with infant nurse sharks. To the east, Rendezvous Bay boasts a pretty shoreline and a colorful array of weird and wonderful marine life. Waterfront dining and upmarket shopping are on offer at nearby Cruz Bay, while those hoping to enjoy a somewhat slower-paced vacation can explore the delights of the island's quieter eastern coast.

Things to do

A national park on the doorstep of Estate Fish Bay

The star of the show is undoubtedly the Virgin Islands National Park. Dominating more than half of the landscape, the natural wonders found inside only serve to complement popular spots such as the Cinnamon Bay Archeology Museum and the crumbling remains of the 18th-century Annaberg Sugar Plantation. Guided tours of the park are available all year round, though if you'd like the freedom to linger in a new favorite spot, it's worth getting a rental car. Transport sorted, you'll find that Estate Fish Bay vacation rentals offer the perfect base for exploring Saint John.

Activities

Choose your pace in Estate Fish Bay

Beach days are a must and it's fair to say you'll be spoiled for choice. Trunk Bay Beach, the only beach on the island with a small admission fee, is home to a popular underwater snorkeling trail as well as a host of amenities that make it a perfect spot for families. When cruise ships dock, Trunk Bay can sometimes feel a little crowded, so if you're looking for something quieter, you might choose to climb nearby Peace Hill to soak up the views of the British Virgin Islands before heading down to relax on the beach at secluded Denis Bay.

Weather

Enjoy Estate Fish Bay all year round

While the island boasts almost perpetual summer temperatures, Estate Fish Bay vacation rentals are at their most popular during the winter months of December through March. The weather in this peak travel season is hot but not uncomfortable while the evenings are gently cooled by what the locals like to call the "Christmas winds." Rental rates throughout the hurricane season of July through October are at their lowest, though travelers looking for a middle-of-the-road option with both sunny days and affordable rentals often choose to visit in April, May or June.

Natural features

Find adventure near Estate Fish Bay

Offering an idyllic setting both on land and offshore, Saint John isn't short of a few natural delights. Much of your getaway will likely be spent enjoying the island's array of postcard-perfect, white-sand beaches – perhaps sipping a cocktail while gently swinging in a hammock beside the impossibly blue water, though finding a new favorite pastime is certainly on the agenda. You might kayak through the mangrove forests found at Hurricane Hole, set off on a cruise from Coral Bay Harbor or perhaps check out one of the area's protected coral reefs. You create your own adventure on Saint John.
