    Snorkel the Underwater Trail at Trunk Bay, VINP
    This is an underwater snorkeling trail with placards describing plants, fish, etc. Its not the best snorkeling on the island, but an underwater trail is really cool!!

    Beaches

    Go see the beaches! They are the most beautiful in the world. Rent a jeep or catch a cab in Cruz Bay and set off, map in hand, to explore the island. Hawksnest Beach is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, especially in the morning. The sun hits the clear water and even standing on the beach you can see fish and rays swimming in the surf.

    There are no facilities except for a port-a-potty or two and a few picnic tables in the wooded area between the parking lot and the beach so don't expect much along those lines. However, this is part of what keeps the beach itself so secluded and pristine. I could have set up camp and lived there forever.

    National Park Service VIsitor's Center

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 6, 2015

    Back in the day, I had to go to the Visitor's Center to find out when the various hikes and tours would be. There are several guided tours available in the Park including; hikes, shore walks, bird walks, even snorkel tours. There is even a self guided snorkel trail located in Trunk Bay. Now you can do a lot of this on the internet.

    But the Visitor's Center is still a good place to go. There is a little museum which shows examples of reef fishes and coral Other exhibits show the cultural history – from the pre-Columbian Tainos, sugarcane plantations during the late 1700's and early 1800's, to slavery emancipation.

  • Snorkel on any of the beaches....

    by magnbay Written Feb 25, 2003

    Snorkel on any of the beaches. If you don't like crowds, walk 20 minutes or so from the National Park service to Honeymoon beach. Best snorkeling, so far, has been at Maho (East end). I have lots of other beaches to try yet.
