Heaven On Earth

Thank you for viewing my artwork!
Imagine the most tranquil island on earth. Chances are you're thinking of St. John.
Though it is the smallest of the three U.S Virgin Islands, St. John's unspoiled beauty is perhaps the greatest found anywhere in the Caribbean.
Saint John is one of the Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea and a constituent district of the United States Virgin Islands (USVI), an unincorporated territory of the United States.
The economy of St. John is almost entirely dependent on tourism. The island has hundreds of rental villas as well as the following hotels and resorts.
Ecotourism is alive and kicking on St. John. There's more than enough to do on land, from watching for wildlife in the national park to hiking miles of trails or strolling sandy white beaches. Hit the water for amazing snorkeling, swimming, even underwater photography—of course. This is the Caribbean, after all.
Nearly 50 years after Laurence S. Rockefeller donated Trunk Bay to the National Park Service, making it part of Virgin Islands National Park, the beach and offshore coral reefs remain among St. John's most breathtaking and well-preserved attractions.
Considered the most beautiful beach on the island and often called the most pristine in the Caribbean, Trunk Bay's clear, warm waters and silky coral sands draw tourists in droves, and its well-maintained facilities include chair and snorkel equipment rentals and showers.
Visitors can bask in the tropical sun, snorkel the 225-yard-long Underwater Trail of reefs, or try their hand at underwater photography - the clean water and variety of colorful sea life promise spectacular photo opportunities.
Tourists looking for more active pursuits than sunbathing and snorkeling can opt to explore the park, which consists of hiking trails, and the ruins of historic sugar plantations, remnants of St. John's Danish colonial past.
After a long day of lounging or touring, island visitors can absorb the island's relaxed atmosphere over a sunset dinner at one of St. John's romantic restaurants, or they can dance the tropical night away at a local club while sipping frozen, fruity cocktails.
