|About these ratings|
You don't have to make a special effort to visit the Virgin Islands National Park; if you're on St. John, you're probably standing right on the edge of it. Two-thirds of the island is parkland, and most of Love City's top attractions -- Annaberg Plantation, Caneel Bay and Trunk Bay -- are within its confines. There are numerous ways to enjoy this tropical paradise. Adventurous travelers should hike at least one of the 22 trails, while families will enjoy camping overnight on the beach.
There is no fee to enter the park, but you'll have to fork over $4 per adult to enjoy Trunk Bay beach. At Cinnamon Bay, you can rent kayaks, sailboats, and other aquatic equipment and vessels for a fee. You'll also need to reserve a campsite in advance, if you'd like to stay the night. Read up on all the park's rules and regulations at the National Park Service's website.
