Thing to Do

Salomon/Honeymoon Bays

Salomon Bay

Salomon/Honeymoon Bay - These two white-sand beaches can be accessed by a short hike from Lind Point Trail that begins at the Visitor Center parking lot, from the trailhead at the Virgin Islands National Park sign off North Shore Road, or by boat.

A narrow reef follows the shoreline east of Honeymoon to Caneel Bay provides excellent snorkeling. In the clear water off the rocky point in between the two beaches, you will find several species of coral (brain, lettuce leaf, elkhorn, mustard hill, and pillar corals). Many colonies of finger coral can be found on the fringing reef west of Salomon. These reef areas provide shelter for a wide variety of colorful fish and other marine creatures.

Walk to the beach for a quick dip or view of the beach or pack a lunch and stay all day. 
It is over a mile up and down a rocky trail not suitable for strollers
