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...

The photos say it all just stunning Worth the trek through the nature park No shops / bars etc so bring your own refreshments! Honeymoon beach is a further 10 mins along and has a shop with basic snacks Snorkeling is incredible

Wow. We've traveled to over 15 islands in the Caribbean and can easily say this is our top beach for that 'paradise' feel. The only way to get to this beach is to hike or go by boat. We came on a cruise that stopped in St. Thomas, took the ferry over to St. John. From there, we walked a... More

My wife and I got right off the boat and walked around the St John Visitors Center and then up the Lind Point Trail. About a 1 mile hike to Salomon Beach. Well worth it. Coming down the trail, you can see the hints of blue through the leaves, When you get there, step through the palms that are growing... More

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

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
