Trunk Bay, Virgin Islands National Park
(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Virgin Islands National Park attractions like Trunk Bay can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
