I’ve likely said it before and will no doubt say it again: Cruz Bay is beautiful from any angle. The picturesque principal settlement on sweet St. John seems plucked straight from a dream. The bay bursts with alluring blues. An assortment of ships scattered about at anchor heighten the tropical vibe. Colorful rooftops line her shores, stretching into the lush greens of the surrounding hills. It is, to me, one of the most intoxicating settings in all of the Caribbean.
Most of us, though, only see it as pictured above. The hill that crests above the town’s northern reaches offers a number of fantastic lookout points from which you can enjoy this view.
As you might well imagine, though, Cruz Bay is also plenty pretty when viewed from her southern flank…
This is Cruz Bay as seen from the Grande Bay Resort, a condo property carved into the hillside mere steps from Cruz Bay Beach. I’ve yet to stay here, but the promise of enjoying this view from a private balcony on one of the higher floors has me hoping to revisit STJ real soon.
