On the sixth day of your perfect week on St. John, we would suggest hiking the Lind Point trail to Honeymoon and Salomon beaches. Starting behind the V.I. National Park Visitor center in Cruz Bay, the Lind Point trail provides a 1.1 mile hike to Honeymoon Beach. The small little shells you see and hear falling down around your feet are the many hermit crabs.
Before reaching Honeymoon, the trail ascends to the Lind Point overlook at an elevation of 160 feet above Cruz Bay. The views towards town and the neighboring islands is stunning.
Continuing on Lind Point, a side trail leads to Salomon Beach, a smaller, more secluded bay that shares the same crystal clear waters as Honeymoon.
I would rank this trail as one of the easiest on St. John. Still, I wouldn’t walk it in flip flops. I would recommend either wearing Keens or Tevas.
Once you get to the end of the trail you are rewarded with this beautiful vista. And if you do this hike first thing in the morning you should have this magical place to yourself. By the way, all of these photos were taken by me post Irma.
