Description

Trunk Bar is an iconic Caribbean beach on St. John. Two-thirds of STJ is a National Park, with most of that land donated to USG/DOI by Laurence Rockefeller. Trunk Bay is THE go-to place for first-time visitors. There's a Ranger Station, burger joint, swag shop, life guard and under water snorkeling trail. The beach can get crowded, especially when the cruise ships drop off day-trippers. But early or late in the day, it is spectacular. The under water snorkel trail must be done at least once. There's a covered picnic area in case of rain along with flush toilets and showers. Easy peazy... EXCEPT parking can be tough at peak times.

Short Walk: The parking lot is within 100 yards of the beach. The challenge is if you're trying to park during the peak of the day. You might have to look for a sliver of a slot on the side of the road. Other options include a group taxi from town or hitching.
