Your Safety

There is much to see and do in Virgin Islands National Park.

Though we do not have anything scary here like lions, tigers, bears, alligators or snakes here, we do have a few things that you should avoid.

The following are tips for a safe and enjoyable visit.
On the Ground
1. Drive on the LEFT!
2. Do not leave valuables unattended.
3. Do not climb on walls of historic ruins when hiking and exploring. The walls are unstable and bodily injuries may occur.
4. Bring plenty of water when hiking.
5. Use bug spray and Reef Safe sunscreen.
6. Do not eat unknown fruits or touch unknown plants. Some plants, such as the Manchineel tree are poisonous.
