Directions

Ferry service for passengers and vehicles is the only means of getting to and from St. John.

Once on St. John there are no designated entrances to Virgin Islands National Park, although two main routes will provide access to many areas. Route 20 (North Shore Road) runs from the ferry dock past the Visitors Center to the most contiguous part of the Park, including most beaches and the campgrounds as well. Large and small tracts of private lands are found within the authorized boundary of the Park.
