Waterlemon Cay, Virgin Islands National Park
(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Take a short hike along a rugged trail to Waterlemon Cay, a remote snorkeling location. Swim out over the initially rocky shore to lush coral gardens teeming with tropical fish, rays, and turtles. You won't find room to sunbathe on the rocky beach, unless you’re okay with perching on a small boulder. Regardless, you can appreciate the natural world around you as you relax in the untouched environment. Bring plenty of food, water, and sunscreen along with you.
