It depends on what you want to do. St. Thomas is better for shopping. St. John has one of the top ten beaches in the world (Trunk Bay). There is a self-guided snorkel tour from the beach. The beach is white sand, crystal clear warm blue water, with little to no surf. They have fresh water showers, lockers, a place to rent snorkel equipment, a snack bar and a couple of shops. It is a truly beautiful beach. St. John, itself, is a prettier island than St. Thomas. However, there are great snorkel tours to take from St. Thomas to Buck Island. So, it's up to you. We normally end up in St. John, but have had a great time in both islands. Best wishes!
