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!Rocky

Nice trail. There's parking right at the trailhead, plus more accessible nearby along the road. Lots of tree cover - we only needed sunscreen at the beach. Rocky in places so definitely wear sneakers or boots. Yes there are wasps on certain sections, especially on the ruins midway down, but you're fine as long as you stay on the trail. Definitely do the petroglyph trail spur (an extra .2 each way). There are 2 sets of petroglyphs next to the very scenic pools and if you bring a cup you can throw water on them to make them stand out better. Lots of small hermit crabs and deer along the trail. Eat lunch in the ruins at the bottom. Regarding the sandy beach at the end - bring your suit and take a dip to cool off. If you want to really swim or explore the rocky underwater area (you can swim out a long way and only be knee deep in places) BRING WATER SHOES, because the rock crevices are loaded with small short-spined sea urchins, and the rocks are rough. We wore ours and had no problems. And yes, the last mile back to the trailhead is up, up, up. Bring plenty of water - with the humidity you'll sweat (like taking a bath on dry land).

The views and trail are great, but this hike was certainly not “moderate” the bulk of the elevation change is the last mile back, and that’s not including if you hike out to the waterfalls.

I never write reviews, but this hike has so little info, I figured I’d put it out there.This is not a difficult hike by any stretch of the imagination. It is moderate. I would bring my elementary aged kids on it, no problem. However, if your idea of a hike is an unpaved trail through NYC’s Central Park, skip this one. The hike is ~3 miles downhill from the trailhead along the road, to the end, at the beach. Then, you (obviously) have to go another ~3 miles back up to the top. The top mile has a moderate incline that won’t register much on the way down, but gives a decent little workout on the way up. The rest is basically flat. If you’re used to doing hikes with ~1k in elevation, this should be a cake walk, however, if you’re from Missouri and eat a lot of fried food you’re probably going to die. The trailhead is right on the road, and there is space along the shoulders to park. I chose this hike due to the abundance of tree cover. The shade is so nice in the St John heat. The humidity is THICK, so if you’re the type who can’t handle it, don’t hike here, as the whole experience is rather “drippy.” You will want roughly a liter of water for the way up (2 normal-size Aquafina bottles or whatever) and maybe another half liter for the way down. The forest is nice, with lots of bird song, hermit crabs everywhere, and tropical looking insects. It’s not an exceptional hike. If you’ve done rainforest hikes in places like Thailand, South/Central America, Mexico, etc, you’ve done nicer ones. But if this is your first tropical forest hike, it’s lovely. The petroglyphs are pretty cool. Worth the short detour from the main trail. The sugar mill at the bottom is interesting. Full of aggressive wasps, so be careful. Really, the wasps are all along the trail, but they seem to be used to humans as long as we don’t deviate. One in our group walked a few feet off the path to look at something, and was immediately stung. The beach at the bottom is nice. Completely devoid of humans, so it’s more serene than what you’ll experience on other St John beaches. Probably worth spending some time and swimming. It’s not soft sand though. It’s a thick gravelly beach, so no sand castles I guess. All in all, this is a good hike if you’re looking to get some exercise and be out in nature. It’s not breathtaking, but it’s nice, and kept in good shape.

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.

The hike was AMAZING. Marked for easy following. Nice, tough trail. Loved it. I have to say that my only dislike was that the beach at the bottom was pretty rocky. No sand at all in the 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.

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.

First to Review

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.
