Columbus Landing

Write Review
Columbus Landing

Columbus Landing is a small, white sand bay with some pebble filled spots. There is a good shell searching, but remember it is illegal to remove seashells from beaches in the Virgin Islands. The water deepens quickly and has many areas with seagrass. There is limited shade. No development or amenities on site. This beach is historically important; it is the landing place of Christopher Columbus' exploration party during his voyage in 1493. You can walk along the rocks on the right side (when facing the water) to see Salt River a National Park protected area with natural and historical importance.
