Is Sapphire beach to Lindqvist Beach walkable?

We are staying by sapphire and wanted to do a big long beach day. Pack a cooler and spend half at one and half at the other. Is this doable?

Sounds like my kind of adventure! I will report back with the details! There is a spot from the path where it is only 177 feet to the beach through the flesh eating thorns, that is just a little over a half of football field and I'll be fine. A couple scorpion bites here or there are not much of an issue either. Additionally there is no area of going through private property so that won't be an issue. I mean come on, gets some sense of adventure SttRodent, it can be such an adventuresome island if you have the athletic ability and training for these types of things compared to thinking just "snorkeling" is a full body military style workout. So drop the local coconut telegraph of things you hear on island and get out for some adventure! You can promote it to the USVI tourism board as "The Island of Adventure" :) The slogan can be something like Snorkeling is for Amateurs, Come Enjoy a Jungle Walk.

Pics and video of this very easy walk for the adventurous will be coming in a month (and yes there are some "illegally" cut trails through the flesh eating thorns already, you just have to know where they are).

How did it go - did you make it through the "flesh eating thorns?" Looking forward to the pics and videos because I was thinking the very same thing about trying the trek through the woods at the end of April?

I think people may be missing the other problem I encountered when I walked it.. BIG, SNARLING , TRAINED, GUARD DOGS.

I was lucky when i did it because it just so happened that it was a holiday and the residents were at home and called off the dogs. I am not sure it would have ended well if the people weren't home.
