Overview

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.

One thing about visiting St. John after the devastating hurricanes of fall 2017, you don't have to share beautiful beaches with many people. We visited Trunk Bay twice during our week long trip to St. John. Both times were wonderful. We snorkeled both visits. The...More

Stunning, quintessential beach you would expect to find on USVI. Ample parking, bathrooms with flush toilets, water (now post hurricane) The National Park is not charging for admission. There are folks there renting chairs, snorkels and umbrellas (so sometimes it seems a bit carnival like)....More

I can see why this is one of the most popular beaches. The beach is beautiful. The snorkeling is only good for beginners. I don't recommend for best snorkeling, but only for the beach.

I would say Cruz Bay. Almost all the bars and restaurants are open at Mongoose Junction as well as the ones that line the street. Longboard, Margarita Phil's, Cruz Bay Landing.
