The good news: this world-class stretch of white sand and turquoise water is St. John's most photographed beach, which features a marked underwater trail for beginning snorkelers. The bad news: because of its popularity, it can get very crowded with cruise ship passengers and members of sightseeing tours.

Trunk Bay is just one of the most beautiful beaches! The amenities are great for a family with restrooms and showers. Can't be beat as a beach stop in the island of St John.

One of the most romantic beaches at sunset! My husband and I strolled the sandy beach and watched a truly sublime horizon. Bring some refreshments and a blanket.
