It is a short walk from the visitors center to this beach (20 minutes) or park on the top of Lindt point for a mild to moderate hike. The beach is small and quiet, has no facilities but has a nice protected area for snorkeling....More

We hiked to Salomon beach but we didn't stay. Salomon beach and Honeymoon beach are separated by a rocky outcropping. No rentals or snack shack, but the same beautiful water. We carried on to Honeymoon beach for a second day of snorkeling.

Wear sneakers and bring water and pack light. The trail is well marked but quite rocky in spots but it's not a difficult mile; around 30 minutes at normal pace. Beach is perfect once you arrive. Good snorkeling and pristine waters. We were the only...More

Snorkeling was just average but the beach was lovely and no one was there. I would definitely recommend for a quieter experience.

We enjoyed the beaches on the Llindt Point Trail on our last visit to St. John, and were glad to return. We parked free with a permit obtained at the visitor's center, then walked the trail to Salomon. We recommend good shoes (hiking, trail, or...More

Honeymoon beach is on the same trail it might be about 15 minutes further along or a 5 minute swim. Yes, Honeymoon beach has faculties, food, a little shop and rental equipment - takes cash and credit.

When we were there, people did come to beach from a different trail and they said it was off the road. You will have to ask a local. Sorry I'm not much help!

REEF BAY HIKE Early up in the morning, which for us on vacation means before 7.30. Want to be the first at the National Visitor Centre to be sure that we can participate in the Ref Bay hike. But at first breakfast. A new way for us to have it, just go to the kitchen room near the pool, take what you want, and find a place at one of the terraces. ”Good morning, Lauren, early up and already working?” Yes, Lauren doesn’t sleep long in the morning. Different things to choose among, see a...More

Salomon Beach-sandy? (13 Replies)
Our visit to STJ soon come! Have been viewing posts, videos & photos via this forum since the hurricanes hit last Sept. I remember an image of Salomon Beach, soon after storm season, that was rather shocking-instead of sand there were rocks galore, palm trees werestripped & the beach was shaped differently. Wondering what the beach conditions are currently & what the hiking trail conditions are like to get to Salomon. Also, can we access Honeymoon Beach on foot now? Thanks!

Following. I’m so sad about Salomon, it was my favorite. My understanding is the path to Honeymoon is cleared. How far is it from Salomon? I’ve only been to Honeymoon via Caneel.

I've read so much about this beach, but it seems a pain to get to? what's the quickest/easiest way.

I wouldn't consider a 15 minute walk a "pain". The only pain is to your eyes looking at the old enough to know better man parading back and forth in his thong.
