Saint John is one of the “collection” of Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean Sea, and an unincorporated part of America. Saint John is the smallest of the three main islands, the others being St. Thomas and St. Croix. It is also the most expensive of the three. The island lies four miles east of Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the territory located on St. Thomas Island. The area of the island is just less than twenty square miles and according to the census in 2000 has a population of just over 4,000. There is no airport on the island, which is reached by ferry from St. Thomas and Tortola every hour, and from Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada.
