Probably the best beach in St. John. A bit of a hike on a trail that starts behind the visitor center but so worth it. We noticed that mornings are busier than afternoons since most people stop there and move on to honeymoon beach. We actually snorkeled all way to Scott's beach, passing Honeymoon and Caneel Bay.

On an island of idyllic beaches, this is absolutely one of the most beautiful. The three sideways palms (and other trees) offer a respite from the sun and a gorgeous backdrop for your vacation photos. Because we were there early and you truly do have to hike the Lindt Point Trail to get there from the National Park or from... More

This little break in the rocky cliffs is widely regarded as a gay beach. If you're uncomfortable with nudity, gay people, or nude gay people, this isn't the beach for you. Honeymoon Beach is nearby and great for everyone.

Nice short hike for a quiet little beach. This beach has great sand & low lying palms to relax under. If you want to escape the tourist beaches would recommend the hike to Salomon Beach😎

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
