|About these ratings|
To some, Trunk Bay is the Mecca of beaches. You'll be hard-pressed to find another Caribbean beach with sand quite so pearly or water so aquamarine. And as it's cocooned by the Virgin Islands National Park, Trunk Bay still maintains its otherworldly serenity despite its constant barrage of tourists. "I recommend going early in the morning. Several years ago we arrived around 7 in the morning and we were able to get some photos of empty beaches and had the snorkeling all to ourselves," one TripAdvisor user noted about avoiding crowds.
Be sure to try your hand at the Underwater Trail — a snorkeling path of coral and fish with underwater plaques along the way. Trunk Bay's water is calm enough that even young snorkelers can enjoy the experience.
There's a $4 admission fee to enjoy access to Trunk Bay, which closes every day at 4 p.m.
