When you're on St. John you'll go to Wharfside Village as it is the commercial strip on the bay and the ferry dock. Lots of food and eat places - most are better for the drink than the eat. Shops aren't bad but we actually went into St. John Spice 3 times in our 10 days. It is a visual... More

There aren't a ton of great places to shop but there are some great places to grab a drink and food while you wait for your ferry! If you want to shop head to mongoose junction which is a short walk away.

This is the best shopping in St John. Easy to get around and to find a refill on your drink as you shop. The parking is not so good. Even a small casino.

This is close to the ferry docks and has all sorts of stores around that kept us entertained. Of all the jewelry stores there we've seen, Vibe and Into the Blue caught our attention the most. I actually got a Larimar pendant from there. The other jewelry store that intrigued us was Bamboo Studio. I think we'll get a piece... More

We shopped at several of the local shops at the Wharfside Village. We found something for everyone. I found some amazing larimar jewelry at Vibe. If you are looking for cigars you have to check some of the jewelry stores. There are no actual cigar shops. Upstairs the has a snorkel shop with pretty reasonable prices. I like this shopping...
