We enjoy the sand and the view at Salomon Bay. It seems to be becoming more popular, and finding a spot in the shade, which tends to disappear as the afternoon goes on, isn't certain. Even when the beach has seemed relatively crowded, it still has been quiet. The trail to the beach is a bit rough, so be sure... More

Best beach on St. John or maybe in the world. Perfect palms, white sands and not many other people. A short hike from Cruz Bay, but miles away from anywhere!

It's fun to hike the Lind Point Trail and end up at a beautiful beach. They have ruined Honeymoon Beach by adding a water sports center, which attracts hoards of day trippers, but Salomon is still uncrowded and lovely.

My husband and I hiked out here from the National Park visitor's center and loved it so much we were back the next day. The hike is beautiful and the fact that you have to walk or boat to the beach means that it's not at all crowded. We snorkeled around the reef between Honeymoon and Salomon and saw some... More

My wife and I love this little beach. We love the ambiance. It has beautiful soft sand. The three Palm trees that are reaching out to the ocean are ideal. The views of the surrounding islands and passing boats are to die for. There are rarely more than 20 people here and often less than a dozen (and that is... More

This beach can only be accessed through hiking or by boat. We hiked the Lind Point trail to get to this beautiful beach. The trail starts behind the Virgin Islands National Park building. The next beach would be Honeymoon beach but it can be accessed through the other side by the Caneel resort quite easily. For this reason, there aren't... More

Salomon Beach is beautiful and somewhat secluded. However, for my wife and I, it was not worth the hike. We are in good physical condition, so the exercise isn't a big deal. It's just a hassle lugging all the beach stuff (chairs, cooler, snorkel gear, towels, water jug, etc.) up and down the narrow, rocky, rutted, and winding path. Also,... More

After a relatively easy 20 min top walk over a maintained footway, although to be fair it is generally uneven and you need to have a level of fitness to walk 20 mins and climb a flight of stairs (this isn't Mt Everest level of fitness we are talking about), you arrive at a beach, a relatively small beach but...

It's worth the trail hike to get to this beach! 20-30 minute hike isn't rated as "easy" since there are hills up & down, but it's not too strenuous either(I have asthma & I did fine). I'd say it is not for folks who have a hard time walking on uneven terrain. Beach was amazing with shady spots available &... More
