Hiking

This trail and these two beaches get a ton of buzz - probably because daytrippers can hike it from Cruz Bay without a car. Trailhead is right next to the visitor's center (fyi the center interior is quite small - you can finish the exhibits in 15 minutes). Free parking downtown is possible but hard to come by. There is permit parking by the trailhead - the sign says you can get a permit for parking from the visitor's center. We snagged a free park, but that would certainly be an easier solution if you need it. 1st section of trail can get hot in the sun. Solomon Beach is lovely and had very few people on it. Our kids loved Solomon. Honeymoon is larger and way more crowded with a pricey outdoor bar. (FYI - there is another way to get to Honeymoon Beach - people can drive to a highway parking lot near Honeymoon with a scammy road sign that says "free parking" with small print saying people pay $10 each for a round trip golf cart ride to access the beach.) The trail back does have a great view of Cruz Bay - just don't miss it - it's actually a tiny spur off the main trail. Our kids liked the trail, but if the beach destination is your goal and you have a car/jeep, I would actually recommend prioritizing other beaches over these.

HikingGreat!

A world-class beach awaits you at the bottom of the hill. We started at Lind Point, signs said .3m to Honeymoon beach, it’s more like .5m, but not too difficult. Our 4 year old did it herself. Down to the beach and back up to the trailhead.

Very easy trail. Well marked. Somewhat rocky but a nice easy trail. Not a lot of coverage at all. We went on a cloudy day so it was cool but I’m sure it could get really hot on this trail.

WalkingRocky

Really nice trail from Cruz Bay to Solomon Beach and Honeymoon Bay. It’s very well marked but somewhat rocky in some spots. I’d rate it as “easy” except for those with mobility issues. Definitely take the upper trail to the overlook. The climb is no worse than the walk back up from either beach and the view is well worth it. Solomon is a lovely, little pebbly beach. Honeymoon was a little too “touristy” for us, but we strongly prefer very secluded beaches. It does offer a food stand where you can grab a bite and replenish water.

Worth the hike! Gives a good work out with a beautiful view of the Tektite area. Up and down, bring water and wear sunscreen. Be sure to take Cabritte Spur as the views are amazing. Small gorge to hop over if you wish. Hardly used. We drove on to Little Lameshur for a cool off dip.

HikingOff trail

Our original intention was a quick hike to Europa Bay before heading back to Little Lameshur for the 4th of July. We accidentally stumbled across the "Europa Point" trail and decided to take it (good decision). This trail hadn't seen much foot traffic recently as we "blazed" forward. Not a long nor difficult hike but the view from the point is definitely worth it (see pics). Of the 3 "point trails" we hiked on this visit to St. John, Europa Point ranked third but still worth the trip.

HikingNo shade

Easy hike to a quiet and secluded beach. There’s no cover on the trail so sport a hat and sunscreen (reef safe if you’re going for a dip in the ocean, please). You can do it in flip flops but there are some rocky part that would be easier with shoes or at least strapped-in sandals. Solomon beach is small and I was alone so it was perfect for solitude. The beach has lots of pebbles and is rockier than Honeymoon beach so I wore water shoes.

HikingNo shade

I did Upper Lind in the way to Honeymoon Beach and Lower Lind on the way out because I was wiped. I did it in flip flops which was okay but if you do Upper Lind, hiking shoes or tennie runners are recommended. It’s just barely more than what I would consider easy but Lower Lind was a breeze. As other reviewers have noted, there’s no shade so be sure to wear sunscreen (reef safe if you’re planning for a dip in the ocean, please). Great sandy beach and clean, clear water but it’s salty so have some extra water on hand to clean your eyes and face.

Take the side trips on the right. Beautiful secluded beach. Also lots of hives with unknown occupants and some really large poop....

This was a great little hike down to Solomon Beach. It is rocky so wear sturdy shoes. Also, although we were hiking through trees, the sun still beat down on us and it got HOT. Bring plenty of water. The reward is the amazing beach and snorkeling at the end. We brought a beach tent and were so glad we did because we lost all shade in the afternoon. The scramble back up may be difficult for some so take your time and enjoy the trail and beach.

Easy walking trail through the salt marsh on a newly rebuilt boardwalk and on the dirt trail surrounding the area. Great for birdwatching. Great for kids or those with disabilities that may prevent more strenuous hikes. It is not ADA accessible. You will see a variety of wildlife, the beautiful Francis Beach and some plantation ruins.

Upper tail has nice vista of Cruz Bay. Lower Lind provides a nice loop. Then stop at Honeymoon Beach for a dip. Beach has beach service!

Great easy coral and stone trail along the bay, gentle breezes, swimming opportunities, few people. My favorite on St John. recommend at least sneakers, we loved having our hiking boots. Bring surf socks for swimming. Annandale ruins are right there too.

Muddy

Just did the lower on the way back from Honeymoon Beach and Solomon Beach. Both great spots, Solomons is more secluded, less busy, and has great snorkeling so definitely worth the stop. Rained this afternoon so trail was muddy but managed in chacos just fine.

Nice trail through Virgin Islands national park. Great view from overlook. Mostly muddy through the jungle. Ends at honeymoon beach and swimming is a nice treat. There is a way to get there by golf cart, as well, so not as isolated as might otherwise be.

HikingNo shadeRockyScramble

Beautiful flat walk along the beach with bright turquoise water. Wear sneakers since it’s rocky with coral and also bring a towel to dry your feet off. You’ll want to swim and snorkel when you get to the end of the trail. Good living coral to see while snorkeling. We saw parrotfish, blue fish, sea urchins, brain coral, and more! You can also see herons. You’ll be in the sun so wear sunscreen and a hat. Any age could do this hike. Don’t try to do it in sandals.

Easy hike with some rocks so wear sneakers. Parts are exposed to the sun so definitely bring sun screen and a hat. Swimming at Solomon bay after the hike is amazing! So pretty and peaceful. Beautiful views at the top of the trail.

Did this trail twice while I was on St. John. Enjoyable hike, not to difficult. Alittle rocky in some areas but not to bad. Passed a person who was jogging on the trail. Great view of Cruz bay and st Thomas. I did the lower trail on the way in to honeymoon beach. Takes you along the water and to Solomon beach and then to honeymoon beach. If you go early in the morning, you will be the only ones on the beaches. On the way back to Cruz bay, I took the upper trail, make sure to stop at the lookout area that looks over Cruz bay.

We checked this trail out on our first day as we were driving around the island exploring. it says elevation 27 feet, but as someone else mentioned, it's probably at least 100 feet or more. The flat grassy area at the top was nice, along with the old windmill. On the way back down, we took the trail down to Denis Beach, which was pretty cool.

Easy short hike along the coast. Bring snorkel gear to snorkel off Watermelon Cay. There can be strong currents so if you are not a strong swimmer bring some sort of flotation device. If you are a strong swimmer pay attention when snorkeling so the current doesnt pull you out. We document all of our hikes. If you are thinking about taking this trail check out our video footage to help you decide: https://youtu.be/LxkZuy8ICF8
