Hawksnest Beach, Virgin Islands National Park

4.5
#4 of 14 in Outdoors in Virgin Islands National Park
Relax and unwind on Hawksnest Beach, a quiet strip of sand offering extensive views of the bay. Popular mainly with local families, the beach remains more peaceful than many others on the island. Sunbathe on the fine white sand and take a dip in the clear blue waters. Because it is slightly more exposed than other beaches, expect some surf here and use caution when swimming or snorkeling with little children. The sea grape trees provide ample shade to get away from the blistering sun.

  • Hawksnest Beach was the best beach we visited. No crowds, easy to get to and parking, and the waters were calm.  more »
  • Hawksnest Beach to beach we traveled an hour and a half. Leaving the ship in the cruise port Havensight half an hour went by taxi to the little port of "Red Hook". And from a speedboat, sailed 20 minutes to Cruz Bay on the neighboring island of St. John. Well and from there to the beach even 20 minutes by taxi. We really liked the beach. Gorgeous tropical nature and pure water. Images that we have laid out, hardly will give all the beauty of this place. We visited many beaches, as well as beautiful was only in the Seychelles. Especially memorable is mild, "fluffy", minute, white sand. Just SUPER beach.
