The Virgin Islands National Park is an American national park preserving about 60% of island of Saint John and more than nine square miles of surrounding ocean in the United States Virgin Islands. The park is a well known tourist destination for scuba diving and snorkeling and has miles of hiking trails through the tropical rainforest.  Cruz Bay is the gateway to the park and has a visitor center where you can get more information about the area.  Ferries operate regularly from nearby ports and can provide you with transport to the island.  

Most tourists that visit St. John head for Trunk Bay and we planned to do the same – until we talked to our dive master on a boat trip to Virgin Gorda. She convinced us to avoid the crowds at Trunk Bay and to hike to some of the remote beaches on St. John. We decided on Solomon Beach which is a secluded bay that is accessed by boat or via a short hike starting behind the Virgin Islands National Park Visitor Center. The snorkeling is beautiful along the rocky points of this beach and the hiking trail continues to Honeymoon Beach, one of Caneel Bay’s seven famous beaches.
