Hassel Island (VI National Park)
Hassel Island once bustled with marine activity; Prince Frederik’s Battery guarded the harbor; German transatlantic shipping company Hamburg American Line had a hub in Careening Cove; there were coaling operations for ships; and for repairs there was the Creque Marine Railway. The remains of these military and industrial operations, in addition to others like a former Leprosarium, are a reminder of our history. Three of the historic buildings are under the care of the Territorial Government, and 122 acres of the island including historic sites are part of the Virgin Islands National Park. A hiking trail provides access to sites. Excursions to Hassel Island are available through VI Ecotours.
