Relax on the gorgeous beach at Trunk Bay on neighboring St. John, the most naturally preserved of the U.S. Virgin Islands. After taking the ferry across Pillsbury Sound, you will travel in an open-air safari-style vehicle through the Virgin Islands National Park on the way to Trunk Bay, which is part of the park. Its backdrop of coconut palms and flowering maho trees makes for an idyllic setting. It couldn’t be more photogenic as the sand is sparkling white and the water bright turquoise. You will be welcome to do most anything you please. Feel free to stretch out and bask in the sun, stroll along the gently curving coast and ease into the water for a refreshing swim. The sea there is teeming with marine life, including the occasional leatherback turtle. These largest of the sea turtles are nicknamed “trunks” because they are said to look like floating steamer trunks. Trunk Bay is named in their honor.
