Hansen Bay is located 3.7 miles east of the Moravian Church on Route 10. Vie’s Snack Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Snacks include conch fritters, garlic chicken, johnny cakes, island style beef patty and home made pineapple and coconut tarts. Sodas, beer and other cold drinks are also available.

Vie’s is truly one of the few really local places left on St. John, not only in itscuisine, but in its friendly, fun, old-time Virgin Islands ambiance. A large boxwood tree emits a delightful aroma when the tree flowers late in the year. Ask Vie about other local flora such as tamarind and calabash trees.

And there’s always the animals, birds enjoying the bird feeder, chickens scurrying about, goats and perhaps you’ll see a cat or two at the Bush Cat Snack Shack.

The beautiful sand beach across the road from Vie’s is privately owned by Vie’s family, (the Sewers) and a small admission fee is charged to enter the beach by land. A bit further east is Vie’s Campground.

About a quarter mile east from Vie’s Snack Shop is a small private beach also owned by Vie’s family, which is presently available for use by the public free of charge.
