Trunk Bay, St. John U.S. Virgin Islands

Words don’t describe the beauty of

Trunk Bay

When you round the corner on the west side of the island and first gaze upon it from the road above, it absolutely gives you chills. In a word, it’s unbelievable.

Trunk Bay St. John USVI Pirates Paradise AdventuresThe National Geographic Society calls Trunk Bay the most beautiful beach in the world. The scenery is stunning and amazing to behold; a quarter-mile long stretch of soft and powdery white sand, bordered with lush island greenery such as coconuts palms and beach mahos. The turquoise and blue water breaks its gentle swells along the white shores, leaving a trail of foamy bubbles. Because of its easy entry and gentle waves, Trunk Bay is safe for the kids or weaker swimmers. That beach in your head where you lay in a hammock swaying gently between coconut trees?

It’s Trunk Bay.

Trunk Bay’s beauty is not just on the surface. Under water, you’ll find a snorkeling trail that identifies the amazing number of fish, corals and sea life surrounding you. It’s literally like snorkeling in huge aquarium with different schools of Caribbean fish–angel fish, parrot fish, blue tang–the list goes on and on. Squid, rays and sea turtles float by, adding to the amazing beauty of the area. Trunk Bay is famous for sightings of the graceful Leatherback turtles, which can grow as large as 9 feet long and weigh as much as a ton.

What most visitors and vacation goers love about Trunk Bay on St. John is that its virtually “worry free,” with the most modern and convenient facilities in all of the Caribbean, including restrooms, showers, picnic tables, grills, a gift shop, snack bar, beach toy and chair rental shack, and lockers to store your things.

    Thanks for the great info on Trunk.
