    Hike to the most remote beach on the island!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a ride up to Peace Hill right ouside of the main town of St. John. On top of Peace Hill is an abandoned sugar mill and a private hidden path down to Dennis Beach. This path is overgrown and winds down steeply through brush and trees. But once you get to Dennis Beach, paradise has been reached. The sand is perfect white and the water crystal blue. No one is on the beach so you can have it to yourself. Although, wierd things have happend on this beach and sometimes you are not alone.....

  • Nude Beach

    Soloman Beach is not talked about much. Trail from behind Park visitor center, mostly level trail but very rocky. Has turn to left downwards for beach. (little over one mile hike) Park occationally gets hair up butt about nudity so be careful. If you see others start striping, then go for it. During the winter of 2003-04, never saw any rangers.

    Bring water since none at beach.

  • Nude Beach area : Solomon or Trunk Bay

    by Sunbum1000 Updated Feb 23, 2004

    The reference was made to Solomon , but I have always known the area as Trunk Bay. Depending on who is 'on duty" as far as the rangers and all will depend on how far down the beach you need to go. Topless sunbathing has been allowed farily close to the visitors center from time to time; but normally you need to go to the left of the center towards a rocky area at the far left end of the beach, the closer you are to this area determines exactly how much you have to wear. If you go on the other side of the rocks, there is generally no problem being nude. Alot of sail boats occasionally will drop anchor in this area as well as the people on the boats can remain nude or come into the beach. My wife and I have used this area since 1982 without any problems...after all the park service and US govt does not have a law restricting nude sunbathing on govt owned or run property...hope others find the area and enjoy the sun as well...

    Just like the little fellow , or girl ??, hiking trails are on the Island , the website of hiking trails is posted below.
    It is not advisible to do it like our little friend,but he or she did a good job staying on the side of the road.

    Don't worry I am not on the road.

    nests

    Some very large nests can be seen in the trees out on the trails. These nests are not housing anything that will bite or sting, they are termite nests.
