The Virgin Islands National Park covers about 3/5ths of the island of St. John and also includes 5,650 acres of submerged lands, and most of Hassell Island in the harbor of Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas.
Created in 1956 from lands donated by the philanthropist Rockefeller family, the park continues to dazzle and amaze visitors to this day.
On St. John there are three notable beaches to explore, at Hawksnest, Trunk and Cinnamon Bays.
The Artis was founded nearly 160 years ago; and the winding paths, majestic trees and the monumental historical buildings give Artis a special, 19th century atmosphere.
Here you will find more than 8000 animals in the zoo; as well as two museums, the Zoological Museum and the Geological Museum; a very sophisticated Planetarium; and a magnificent, recently renewed Aquarium. There is also a new restaurant on the premises.
