Trunk Bay, Virgin Islands National Park

4.7
Watch the crystalline water gently whirling around cliffs and crags, lapping the soft coral sands of one of the most pristine beaches in the Caribbean at Trunk Bay. Rent snorkel gear and discover colorful sea life along the underwater trail of reefs. The inviting, warm waters are perfect for underwater photography enthusiasts. When you have had enough of swimming and basking in the tropical sun, cool off with a frozen cocktail or dine at one of the romantic restaurants. The shade of the national park hides many hiking trails for you to explore. Look for the ruins of historic sugar plantations, remnants of the colonial past. Note that the beach gets overcrowded sometimes. Put Trunk Bay on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Virgin Islands National Park tour itinerary planner.

  • Crystal clear water, white sand, a cool breeze and lots of sunshine is what you will find here. The drive to Trunk Bay runs along the coastline and has lots of stunning views. Very much worth going...  more »
  • This is always a must go. I stay all day. Only advice is to either take a taxi or if you are renting a car go early- limited parking. Taxis’ are constant so not to worry. There is a small admission....  more »

  • Epic. One of my top 10 favorite beaches. The turquoise waters and the soft white sand make it picture perfect. Expect slightly larger crowds and expensive food vendors, but they don't detract from the reason you came... An amazing beach.
  • gorgeous beach. the water is crystal clear, the sand is so soft, and the view is amazing. by far one of the best beaches I have been to ever! I also love that they have reef safe sunscreen free to use and are against plastic straws and glass bottles.
