Looking for a sun kissed stretch of sand to relax and revitalize, while also having the option to get active and explore. This is it. Honeymoon Beach is a pretty beach with sandy shoreline surrounded by sea grape and coconut trees. Hammocks and picnic tables are scattered under the trees. The crystal clear turquoise water is rich in marine life and offers great snorkeling, particularly around the rocky headland that extends into the water between Honeymoon Beach and Solomon Bay next door.

You can access Honeymoon Beach via Lind Point Trail which starts just behind the Virgin Islands National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay, see our National Park trails page for more information.

Additional options: There is a hiking trail from Caneel Bay to Honeymoon Beach, however while Caneel Bay Resort is closed and awaiting repairs, access by walking through the resort is no longer permitted. Instead, a chauffered golf cart service is in place.

Watersports equipment is available at the Honeymoon Hut including snorkel gear, lounge chairs, kayaks, stand up paddleboards, floats and lockers. These can be rented individually as you like; or rent them all with a Day Pass.

The Honeymoon Beach Hut offers drinks, snacks and restrooms; and just next door Bikini's on the Beach sells freshly made sandwich wraps, smoothies, cold beer, wine, piña coladas and famous rum painkillers.

The hike to this beach is really easy. The day we went we mostly had it all to ourselves. There was a snorkle boat that stayed anchored off to one side for awhile. This is one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever been to. Palm trees line the beach and offer shade. The water is crystal clear and the ocean is gentle. We stayed all day spent most of the time just hanging out in the water. This is the beach you picture in your dreams...Beautiful!

Hiking Tips

  • Tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Avoid hiking or swimming alone.
  • Allow for sufficient time to explore, swim and rest.
  • Remain on park trails – some trails cross private property, do not trespass into private property.
  • Wear cool clothing, comfortable walking shoes. Sandals are not recommended. Sneakers are your best option.
  • Protect yourself against the sun and insects.
  • Bring water and snacks.
  • Do not leave items or garbage on the trails. Make sure you leave with all the items you brought with you.
  • Do not remove anything from the park property; this includes but is not limited to shells, rocks, artifacts, flowers, plants and animals.
  • Pace yourself to prevent fatigue. Watch footing on wet rocks and trails made rough and slippery at times by heavy rainfall.
  • Do not eat unknown fruits, nuts or berries. Some plants and fruits are poisonous and can cause allergic reactions. Do not touch unfamiliar plants. Avoid handling or picking plant life that may harbor stinging insects, cause rashes, scratches or skin punctures. Many plants have thorns beware, look but don’t touch. Some ground covering shrubs cause severe itching – it is in your best interest to stay on trails.
  • Do not climb on fragile historic structures. Leave artifacts in place.
  • Hike early and return early.
