Fodor's Expert Review Maho Bay Camps

Estate Maho Bay, Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Tucked into the greenery along the island's North Shore, the eco-conscious Maho Bay Camps attracts a sociable crowd that likes to explore the undersea world off the campground's beach or attend on-site seminars. The "tents" (wooden platforms protected from the elements by canvas and screening) are linked by wooden stairs, ramps, and walkways—all of them elevated—so that you can trek around camp, down to the beach, and to the coolish public showers without disturbing the terrain. Although the tents have real beds and electricity, there are no refrigerators; there are propane stoves, but ice-filled coolers keep your food from spoiling.
