We parked at the National Park Visitor Center and got a free parking pass and headed to Salomon Beach. There are 12 parking spaces that are set aside for this purpose. The stairs to the Lind Trail are right behind you and the path well marked. We headed out, and while we were fine, we were surprised at the length... More

Salomon and Honeymoon are right next to each other and both are lovely. We snorkeled from one to the other and hung out on each! The views are gorgeous, sand is white and soft, and the snorkeling is good between the two. Avoid middle of the day when the cruise ships bring tours over in boats unless it is a... More

Visited here from a cruise ship-we docked at St Thomas and found out 5 other ships were also going to be there, so thought we should go to St John to get away from the crowds-glad we did! We are more of an adventurous fam, so did some research and found this beach. We are not touristy and wanted a... More

Salomon Beach is in a short walking distance from Cruz Bay. It is a smallish but cozy spot to relax, swim, and admire the underwater life. We visited it several times, occasionally we were the only people there! You can find shady spots as well as really recharge yourself with the sun. Be aware of the white crabs living on... More

My husband & I wanted a day at the beach without spending lots of $$ on a taxi! Heard we could take the trail to Solomon Beach and Honeymoon Beach. Nice hike but pretty muddy and slippery in spots ... be careful! When we got to the turnoff to Solomon, headed there to cool down in the sea. Once there,... More

It's an uninteresting hike on the Lind Point Trail to a fabulous white sandy beach. I was completely alone on a Saturday morning. A few people showed up just before midday as I was packing up to leave. You'll find the trailhead for the Lind Point Trail across the parking lot from the Visitor Center's bathrooms. (Don't forget to display... More

This is my 2nd review to do on this beach. We have been back to St John's (and this beach) many times since my original review. I truly believe Salomon Beach is still one of the best, and often overlooked, beaches on St John. It is the perfect beach for day trippers from St Thomas or cruise ship passengers looking... More

Great, secluded little beach that you can only access by foot or by boat. While it's a "public" beach, not very many people take the time & effort to get there.
