Outdoor Activities

Snorkeling and scuba diving

Some of the best snorkeling anywhere can be found at the beaches in the park and around St. John. A brochure available at the visitors center describes the various locations.

Sailing, kayaking and windsurfing

At the Cinnamon Bay beach, rentals are available for a variety of sailboats, kayaks and windsurfers. The bay is large, and prevailing winds make for exciting sailing.


A number of trails on the North and South shores offer a variety of short and long hikes, ranging from 15 minutes to two hours. Our trail map provides details of each of the 20 hiking trails. Please note that listed distances are one-way.
