Best Beaches on St. John – U.S. Virgin Islands

Trunk Bay St John USVI

We can thank one of the Rockefellers for keeping St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands beautiful. It was Laurance Rockefeller back in 1956 who purchased and turned a large portion of the island into a national park.

What this means to you is that as other Caribbean islands over build and over develop, St. John remains untouched. It’s the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, but at 28 square miles, almost two-thirds are a U.S. National Park. Naturally this means more people want to see what “pristine” really means.

But remember, we have three islands, St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John. Among the three, which are the three best beaches? Ah, hard choices for sure. I bet I could set you down on any one of them and you’d be content with what you’d find. However, after asking many people, I’ve found everyone has a favorite. Make sure you visit each page we have on the Virgin Islands to make your choice.

Since we’re dealing with three islands, we’ll give you the Three Best of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and at the same time let you know the Three Best on each island.

    Seriously? All the beaches on St. John and you name the cliche and overrated Trunk Bay and a Caneel beach? Honeymoon is a good choice and an underrated beach on the island. I’d put Cinnamon, Maho and Salt Pond all above Trunk or any of the Caneel beaches.
