Stunning and private beach that's worth the hike

This beach is much less traveled than Trunk or Cinnamon. Just make the easy hike from Cruz Bay and you'll be rewarded with a more private, but very beautiful beach.

Great Beach. Worth the Hike. Great views of Tortola, Caneel Bay and Lavongo. Bring a lunch and enjoy.

This beach will be devoid of anything that you cannot portage down a .4 mile trail over rocks and around trees. Unless you get there by boat, which have snorklers galore, it is going to be you and maybe a dozen others. It is shaded in the early morning, and you will not get sun until it peaks over the...

Don't miss this beautiful beach on your trip to St. John. You have to hike a bit through the woods to get there but it's worth it. It's a small beach but not that many people go there so it's usually not crowded. The palms reaching out towards the water provide some nice shade if you want it.

This is a nice quite clean beach with soft sand a little more than 100 yards long. Honeymoon beach is just 80 yards NE separated by rocks. I hiked down twice just after sunrise and was the first one there. It's a half hour hike from The National Park entrance in Cruz Bay, about a 15-20 minute hike from the... More

If you are lucky probably you will have the this serene simply beautiful beach with clear water for yourself. Give yourself some time if you are planning to visit in the evening as there is a small walk that one needs to take through the woods to reach here. It gets dark and you might need flashlights(torch). I wish had... More

Admittedly, I tend to prefer the beaches with drink and food service nearby but hiking the short distance from the ferry terminal to this beach, with sandwiches picked up at a nearby restaurant, was a breeze. We spent several hours hanging out at the beach and in the water. Even in late November, the water was very comfortable.

This is a short hick and the most exclusive beach close to Cruz bay. Very nice. Bring water and drink. And sunscreen too. If going to stay late bug spray as you will get bit after 4 or 5 pm. No big deal. You like to snorkeling you got it right here.

My wife and I try to walk the Lind Point trail early 7:30am in the morning to get to Solomon beach around 8:00am. Most days in November or December the beach will be empty until around 10am when the day trip boats show up to snorkel. Very private and such great morning colors overlooking St Thomas

This beach can be accessed by a few hiking trails or by boat. We generally park at the top of the hill near the Caneel Spur Trialhead then hike down where you have the choice to go to Honeymoon beach which is more crowded or go to the right and end up at Salomon Beach which is beautiful with the...
