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

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
