The Most Romantic Place In The Caribbean?


If you’re looking for one of the most romantic places in the world there are few better than St. John in the United States Virgin Islands. More specifically, Cinnamon Bay Campground on St. John is probably the most fantastic destination on the island and an absolute treasure.

St. John, for the uninitiated, is the smallest of the three American Virgin Islands and by far the most unspoiled. In fact, over 70% of St. John is designated as state forest grounds and thus completely uninhabited. This is, for those who really want to ‘get away from it all’, one of its best features by far. map of st john.romantic places, romantic vacation

There’s only one town on St. John, that being Cruz Bay, and that’s where the ferry from St. Thomas arrives every day. There are no flights into St. John so the ferry is your only choice. Once there you have the option of renting a car or taking one of the myriad of shuttle buses to Cinnamon Bay Campground. It’s only a short trip of about 15 minutes and you can take in the gorgeous views of Cruz Bay and the rest of the Virgin Islands from various vantage points along the way.

Once you arrive at Cinnamon Bay you’ll instantly feel like you’re ‘home’. The grounds are extremely well kept and very inviting and, in truth, it feels more like a resort than a campground. It’s quite large too and spread out over several acres. At the central lodge they have a restaurant that, while not haute cuisine, is so laid back and comfy that you won’t want to leave. It’s all set back in the tropical forest of St. John as well, one of the most beautiful on the planet.

The best part about Cinnamon Bay Campground however has to be Cinnamon Bay Beach. One of the prettiest in the entire Caribbean, it gets sun almost all day long because of the way it’s situated and it’s truly gorgeous. When you camp there you’ll be given one of the many large army tents and all of the things that you’ll need to stay: cots, blankets, pillows, sheets towels and more. 

Yes, it’s camping, but the romantic part comes at night and is well worth it. The tents are literally a few metres from the beach and the sound of the water lapping there, as well as the laid back atmosphere of the entire place, is wonderful. (They have cabins too if you’re not much for tents.)

No matter what, you’ll have your own private place just seconds from one of the most stunning beaches in the world and access to all the Caribbean has to offer. Or just relax to the natural sounds of the island and let the days slip idly away. Romantic destinations do not get much better.
