TRUNK BAY, ST. JOHN, U.S.V.I




Trunk Bay



Considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Virgin Islands.
Known  for its 225-yard long underwater trail.
A "must not miss" on anyone's beach list.
Definitely, the highlight of our trip at the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A gorgeous pristine white sand beach, has crystalline water,
and the best snorkeling trail so far, that we have visited.
If you wander about 50 -100 feet beyond the trail,
you'll see more coral formations and more varieties of fish.


My husband and my daughter snorkeling.
 
Trunk Bay's clear water and colorful sea life promise to give anyone who tries underwater photography a spectacular photo opportunity.
I was lucky enough to photograph a trunk fish with my Gopro,
 which I must suggest the best tool to have if you have the love for snorkeling.
We brought our own snorkel gear,
 but if you don't have one, you can rent at the Rental Shack.

And if you're feeling hungry,
there is a concession stand
that offers sandwiches, burgers, non-alcoholic refreshments, and cocktails.
Most visitors do bring their own cooler filled with delicious food
 and cold drinks.
 
There are plenty of showers and restrooms available.
The facilities are  very well maintained.

Sea grape trees offers plenty of shade.
The best spot was right next to the Lifeguard tower.

My children rated this beach, 5 stars.

Plenty of fish to see on the shallow part,
the kids were able to swim to the Coral Island with no problem.
The water was calm and clear, 
they were able to see the stingray from the beach without getting close to it. 
 
Smooth, clean, white sands.
 
 

Trunk Bay beach is breathtaking.
We all fell in love with this place.
We can't wait to go back.
 
 
 
Note:

  • A fee is collected between 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • Parking is available, but if you come late, it will be a challenge to find parking.
  • Beach Chairs and Snorkel gear are available at the Rental Shack.
  • It is good to have a swimming noodle or snorkeling vest in case you get tired, and a great tool to have for the not so confident swimmers.
 
Nope, we're not in a pool.
That's the beautiful crystalline water of trunk Bay!
