Hike the Lind Point Trail to Salomon Bay St. John
There are multiple routes to arrive at Salomon Bay St. John. You can travel on foot by hiking the Lind Point Trail. Or, you can drive along Route 20 and enter through the main gatehouse to Caneel Bay Resort. Whichever option you choose will involve walking along a trail to the hidden island treasure. The first option will provide you with an added hiking adventure, while the second will bring you to a luxurious retreat en route to your final destination. Lind Point Trail can be hiked from the Virgin Islands National Park Visitor’s Center on the waterfront in Cruz Bay. From here, it is around a one-mile hike to Salomon Bay St. John. If you decide to drive to the Caneel Bay Resort and walk from there, be prepared to pay a $20 fee for parking. This fee can be refunded with a $20 purchase during your visit to the resort.

Whether you want to lounge under the shady palm trees along the sandy shoreline or explore the crystal clear water, there are options!
