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

As other reviewers state the only way to get to Salomon is to hike the trail. It's a nice hike and keeps the beach quieter. After meeting friends at the ferry we walked to the trail entrance which is a short walk, hiked the trail and enjoyed a swim at Salomon Beach. It is a beautiful beach, small and somewhat... More

Gorgeous beach, I mean spectacularly beautiful, some excellent snorkeling around the rocks on the northeast side of the beach, and as you have to hike in, it is usually blissfully quiet or even empty. Of course, that also means there are no services (food, bathrooms, chair rental, etc.). I would not recommend trying to get down there with little kids;... More

The only way to this secluded pristine beach is by boat or to hike in on the Lindt Trail which can be accessed in Cruz Bay by the Visitor Center, or along Rt. 20 on the north side of the road near the Virgin Island National Park sign where there are several parking spaces. The trailhead is near the sign,... More

Beautiful Beach! Quiet, low key and tranquil. Not many people go here. You don't need to take a taxi. Just a 10 to 15 min hike and your there. Note: wear shoes for the hike to the beach. The path can be rocky. Highly recommend!!!

We visited on March 3, 2015 and loved this hidden gem. We took the ferry from St Thomas to Cruz Bay and hiked from the trail head to Salomon Beach (20 minutes each way). For a young, active couple, we easily hiked it in our sandals, carrying our bag, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend that for everyone. Salomon Bay was... More

You have to hike into this beach, so it tends to not be as busy as other beaches on the North Side. We packed for the day and had a lovely time. Good snorkeling and lovely water.
