St. John Beach of the Month

Maho Bay beach is a favorite among Islanders and tourists. Not only does it boast beautiful white sand – but its convenience makes it the perfect St. John beach for families and kids. Voted a “Visitors Favorite Beach”, and it’s no surprise since Maho beach has it all. From its iconic white sand beach, light surf, shallow entry, and ease of access – Maho deserves its fame. The narrow sandy beach has plenty of sun and shade. The sandy bottom extends out about 20 yards – making it a wonderful beach to wade, swim, float and hang out! And the shallow sandy shoreline is a great spot for kids and young children to play and make sandcastles. But, popularity comes at a price …and the beach can get crowded especially at high season and on holidays! Upside: this beach has bathrooms!

Zoning Requirements in the U.S. Virgin Islands

When buying land, it’s very important to make sure that you look at the zoning. Zoning in the U.S. Virgin Islands determines how large of a house you will be able to build on a specified lot. Certain special requirements apply, such as the 50-foot set back from the high tide mark for waterfront properties. We have all the details on our website. Make sure to ask us about zoning for any property that you might be considering for purchase.

St. John Trail of the Month: Bordeaux Mountain Trail

Bordeaux Mountain Trail is a 2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Reef Bay, Saint John, US Virgin Islands that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on a leash. The trail is awesome! It cuts through the side of Bordeaux Mountain and is supported by rocks the whole way. There are three picturesque spots of Great Lameshur Bay and beyond. Much of the trail is in the woods but it is not shady during mid-day.  The hike back up the mountain is very strenuous. It goes from sea level to 1200 feet in about one mile. At the top of the mountain, you are basically at a road, but this hike is great for exercise and the trail down is super easy and fun. Once you reach the bottom, you can make a right and continue on to Little Lameshur Bay where there is great snorkeling. You can also continue the trail out to Yawzi Point, an easy extension of the trail with great views of both Lameshur Bays. It is well marked. Or bring your snorkel gear and snorkel at Little Lameshur, the beach is secluded and quiet. There’s a changing station. The ruins at the beach are picturesque too.
