The good news: this world-class stretch of white sand and turquoise water is St. John's most photographed beach, which features a marked underwater trail for beginning snorkelers. The bad news: because of its popularity, it can get very crowded with cruise ship passengers and members of sightseeing tours.

I visited Trunk Bay at about 2:30pm on an August Monday. It was all but empty! There were maybe 50 people on the entire beach, but seeing as it's a longer beach, this means that everyone was very spread out. Find a spot along the...More

Must see beach on St John, underwater snorkel experience that details the different aquatic life. Nice area to rinse off/use bathrooms and an area for food/drinks all in one spot

Like a post card, such a beautiful beach. Clean, white sand and the clearest water I have ever seen! Does get a bit crowded, because it's a smaller Beach. But totally worth it! Highly recommend.

I would say Cruz Bay. Almost all the bars and restaurants are open at Mongoose Junction as well as the ones that line the street. Longboard, Margarita Phil's, Cruz Bay Landing.
