Leinster Bay, Virgin Islands National Park

(140+ reviews on the web)
Reef
Take a short hike along the bay to Leinster Bay, a hidden snorkeler’s paradise. Teeming with marine life amongst coral bursting with color, you’ll get to observe sea turtles, the occasional shark, and perhaps even a dolphin or two. Finding a place to lounge in the sun on the narrow, rocky beach can be difficult. Bring some decent shoes for the hike on the bumpy trail, and be sure to check out the nearby ruins of a sugar plantation. Use our Virgin Islands National Park itinerary planner to add Leinster Bay and other attractions to your Virgin Islands National Park vacation plans.
