“A moderate trail leading to excellent views of Coral Harbor.”— Jon Eichner
If your destination is the beach for swimming and snorkeling, forget it. As of July 2019, the beach is a putrid, seaweed-infested dump.
About 15 minutes into the journey, the trail elevation rises to about 250 ft providing views of the British Virgin Islands. On the descent you'll be treated to views of Coral Bay, Hurricane Hole and the East End of St. John. Just before reaching the parking area, visitors will pass ruins of a 1900's cattle farm, uphill and adjacent to the Hermitage Trail.
