The reason why St. John is America's Paradise

The beach is what St. John is all about.

Whether one enjoys snorkeling, swimming, diving, or just laying on a towel soaking up the sun, St. John has dozens of beaches for your pleasure.  All the beaches of St. John are the property of the people and cannot be privately owned, some however can only be reached by boat or by paying for access if arriving by land.

The National Park Service charges a use fee of $4 for those aged 16 and over, for regular visitors a $10 annual permit is available as well as a $15 family permit.  These fees only apply to Trunk Bay and Annaberg Plantation, the park is free to all and only one of the many lovely beaches has a use fee.  Amenities at Trunk Bay include showers; a snack bar that sells sandwiches and cool drinks; a water sports shop that rents snorkeling equipment and beach chairs; and a small gift shop.  There is also a very nice under sea snorkel trail with plaques to point out various items on the ocean floor.

A kiosk operated by Eastern National and staffed by Friends of the National Park volunteers at Trunk Bay provides Park information and literature. Information is also posted on bulletin boards located throughout the Park.

Beaches on St. John range from the powdery white sands of Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and others to the many small shell and coral beaches the surround the island.
