Getting to Virgin Islands National Park
There are no roads or bridges to the island of St. John, although there is a car ferry connecting from St. Thomas. Once on St. John, the park lands are pretty easy to find, as they occupy most of the island. North Shore Road is the most heavily used by park visitors, as it provides access to nearly all of the famous beaches and bays. Centerline Road runs across the interior of the island, and connects the towns of Cruz Bay and Coral Bay.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Cruz Bay Visitor Center on St. John. You can click on the map marker to get directions from wherever you are. Following this is the official park map provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file (sometimes very large files) or a simple image file. The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while this map is useful for general navigation around the park, if you are planning to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Virgin Islands Trail Map.
