Trunk Bay–The World’s Most Beautiful Bay

Trunk Bay, St. John, USVI

Some people say that Trunk Bay is the world’s most beautiful bay, and we must agree. It’s been photographed millions of times, but truthfully, there’s no comparison to seeing it in person. Put it on your bucket list–it’s absolutely stunning.Trunk Bay St John USVI

Trunk Bay has been voted a one of the Ten Best Beaches in the world by Conde Nast Traveler multiple times. The National Geographical Society says Trunk Bay is THE most beautiful beach in the world. We have to agree with the latter. It’s simply unbelievable, and no photo does it justice. There’s an underwater snorkeling trail that’s perfect for the beginner snorkeler or infrequent swimmer–the waves here are virtually non existent. It’s a great place to just float along, and you can begin snorkeling as soon as you’re knee deep in the water. Trunk Bay is ripe with colorful corals and friendly fish–they’ll even follow you as you meander the underwater trail!

To visit Trunk Bay, you’ll pay a small fee to the National Park Service, but its worth it. Trunk Bay includes facilities including showers and restrooms, a small store and even a snack bar. The beach is impeccably maintained. Plan to spend an entire, very relaxing day at Trunk Bay.
