Owner description: The good news: this world-class stretch of white sand and turquoise water is St. John's most photographed beach, which features a marked underwater trail for beginning snorkelers. The bad news: because of its popularity, it can get very crowded with cruise ship passengers and members of sightseeing tours.

Loved the beach, this is what St. John is known for. We went there for the snorkel trail to give the kids (5 & 8) a bit of experience before trying some of the other beaches. The showers are a nice to have, but only half of them work. Not a big deal, since you don’t have to wait for them. This beach is just wonderful, it will be more populated than some of the others, but it still won’t seem like many people if you have been to Florida during Spring Break.

Beach is fantastic, not a lot of surf. Perfect for my son (3 yr). Snorkeling was excellent. Food from kiosk was very good. The lifeguard was attentive. Loved this place and would go back any day.

I have had the pleasure of snorkelling here a few times and highly recommend the experience. The beach is pristine and a great place to relax. It is an easy ferry ride from St. Thomas.

Went to trunk bay while we were on a cruise. Took ferry over then got a cab. Cab driver came and picked us back up 2 hours later.

Small entrance fee worth every penny. Cheap rentals for snorkel equipment.

We swam through a large school of fish, saw many colored fish and swam near a sting ray.

Beach was not crowded and showers were very clean.

Well worth the trip.

If you can only make it to one beach in the USVI, you MUST make it Trunk Bay. The clearest water I've ever seen. Great snorkeling. And set in an undeveloped area inside the National Park. Get there early if you are driving as parking is limited (about 20 spaces). We arrived around 9:30 and got the next to last spot. Good facilities. Pricey, low quality snack bar food (bring your own...just no glass containers allowed). Chair rental ($7 per sand chair, $10 per lounge chair...bring credit card for deposit).
