“Visitors seeking a relaxed run to some of Virgin Island's most pristine beaches will love this route”— Mikhaila Redovian
You'll begin your journey by heading north from the visitor center, leaving from the Lind Point Trail. You'll take this route in reverse, so head to the left (west) at the first intersection. The Lind Point Trail is an easier route, and by taking an initial left, you'll be able to enjoy stunning ocean vistas from this relaxed trail. Take your time as you wind through tropical vegetation, passing Lind Point along the way. You'll eventually make your way to a trail junction with the Caneel Hill Spur, just near Salomon Beach. You'll have the difficult choice of stopping to dip your toes in the warm waters of Salomon Beach or continuing on to the equally as stunning Honeymoon Beach.
Once you've had your fill of Salomon Beach, take the Caneel Hill Spur as it continues northeast. You'll be treated to more lovely beach views, and in a very short distance, you'll have reached Honeymoon Beach. This is another excellent place to wade, swim, or simply enjoy the sound of the waves as they make their way to the shore.
Once you've had your fill of the beaches, return to the southwest along the Caneel Hill Spur to its intersection with the Lind Point Trail. Instead of returning along the gentle beach-side trail, take the left, southern branch of the trail. This leg of the journey features a short but steady climb. The trail here will be a bit rocky, but nothing will be too difficult. You'll soon have views looking out over Cruz Bay.
If you time your journey properly, you can enjoy a full day at the various beaches along the way, and can also enjoy a spectacular sunset over Cruz Bay. Either way, you're in for an outing that won't soon be forgotten!
