Trunk Bay

Rolling green hills flatten into sun-kissed sand in Trunk Bay, St. John. The light-blue water is clear enough to see the ocean floor, as well as the dozens of sea creatures below the surface. Small islands just off the coast shelter the beach from major tides, creating idyllic conditions for the 205-meter snorkeling trail just off shore. After its adoption by the National Park Service over fifty years ago, this beach has become one of the most well-preserved beaches in the world. The plentiful wildlife and immense beauty of Trunk Bay will leave a powerful sense of paradise in your heart for many years to come.

Getting There

The U.S. Virgin Islands are extremely accessible from most international travel hubs. Most airlines fly into Cyril E. King International Airport on St. Thomas so you will likely fly directly there, then take a local flight or chartered boat to Cruz Bay. You can also fly into the exclusive Cruz Bay Seaplane Base which is only minutes away from Trunk Bay. After collecting your luggage, you can hop in a taxi or a rental car to drive straight to your accommodations or the beach.
