Keep Left Sign

Remember Drive on the Left & Walk on the Right

We drive on the left here in the Virgin Islands.
Pay extra attention when making turns, pulling out into traffic or crossing the road.
When walking on the side of the road please walk facing traffic which would be the right side of the road.

There are no airports on St. John so you must fly to St. Thomas Cyril E. King Airport (code STT) and travel from there. From the airport you rent a car and drive or take a taxi to Redhook (west end) St. Thomas. From there you can either take a car barge to St. John or the people ferry. Once on St. John you can easily walk from the ferry terminal to the Visitor Center.
