WalkingGreat!

The only reason it is a “hike” is that you have to park your car outside the Botany Bay Residences. There is a concrete road that goes all the way down to the entrance of Mermaid’s chair. It was worth the walk - only my husband and I were there, so it was serene. We also went around 7:30am when it was still fairly cool by Caribbean standards. You can only enter the road between 7am and sunset/7pm, and you must sign in at the security booth.

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.

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.

Walking

Would not call this a trail as you’re walking on a sidewalk for quite some time to get to the beach. It was extremely hot and pretty tough coming back up as it’s mostly uphill. Mermaids Chair was beautiful and but I would rather explore by boat versus walking.

Okay, I am no Olympic athlete but that hill was a beast! Unfortunately, after climbing up the dirt road, the trail to the East was overgrown and we couldn’t hike it. Could anyone else get there recently? Beautiful views and a great workout.

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.

The recording is off at the beginning. Not sure if the entrance of the trail changed, but you need to go up the road through the parking lot at the left of the resort gate and then look for the trail entrance on your right. The trail is really nice and of course the tide pools at the end wonderful. We hiked late afternoon and had the tide pools for ourselves at sunset. My boys loved the night hike return by flashlight.

HikingNo shade

Single trac trail with steady incline/ decline. Stay on trail as there are thorns and cactus EVERYWHERE. Short well built staircase down to the beach. Large beach area with little shade. Moderately traffic. Great snorkeling. Show up early in the morning and have beach to your self.

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.

Super fun trail with a surprise at the end. My boyfriend and I hiked this earlier today. It is a tough trail but totally doable. Easy path to follow. We parked at the resorts lot to the left at the guards post (before entering the resort). From there, walk up the road, it forks so make sure to stay right, and the trail is on the right marked by a wood post. Hike, hike, hike through the beautiful forest. When you get to the dirt road you are almost there! Go right on the dirt road and down the hill until you see the ocean. Walk to the left and climb over the rocks to get to the pools. Bring comfortable shoes for the hike, water shoes for the tide pools (there were a few sea urchins), a lunch, and some sunscreen and you’re good to go. We are pretty fast hikers and it took us about 45 minutes to get there with stopping to take photos.

You enter at Perserve Bay which is gated. All trails that lead to a beach are also closed until beaches open. :(

Lovely hike with incredible views of Lameshur Bay, salt pond and the south side of St John. Up and down terrain, some loose rock. 2/3 in sun. Some prickly shrubs. Sneakers or hiking shoes recommended. Took trail to petroglyths. There it’s an incredible opportunity to see the stone carvings. You can walk along the rocks and get very close to the carvings. A small fresh water pond with fish is also there. Saw a mongoose there too. Highly recommend this hike. Among my all time favorites for views, ease and historical value.

Great views at the top of Caneel Hill and Margaret Hill are a reward for some hard hiking. The grade is steep and the footing is tricky. The views are great, particularly from the platform atop Caneel Hill. On Margaret Hill, look for the large rock slabs at a cutout on the right — a great place to relax and take in the sights.
