Depends on your interests, I suppose. Two years ago in May I sailed from Jost Van Dyke to St. John, spent the afternoon at Maho Bay (after checking in at customs at Cruz Bay) and then overnighted around the corner in a lovely little bay near a hiking trail and good snorkeling. I had an incredibly relaxing time. Nice bit of snorkeling, 3 or 4 other boats in the overnight anchorage. Nice and quiet after the afternoon mooring scrum of White Bay in Jost.
I'm going out again for a 7 day sail in May and intend to spend at least two nights in St. John.
Customs are a bit of a hassle - check out of BVI, check in at USVI, check out of USVI, and check in at BVI (at least I think that's what you've got to do - we didn't, but that's another story).
