Scott Bay Beach Caneel Bay
#1 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Just magical and a nature lovers paradise!!!
Must pay to park if you are not staying there.
Maho Beach Cruz Bay
#2 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
We love this beach for it's convenience (very nice to park across the street when lugging all that beach gear) , it's beautiful soft sand and crystal clear water and for all the available natural shade.
Golden white sand; aqua, turquoise, green, blue water; plenty of beautiful wildlife--land, air, and water; yatchs, cats, sailboats moored a hundred yards off shore; all this in a National Park--protected and prist...
Hansen Bay Beach East End
#3 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Highly recommend Hansen Bay! Small donation to park and sit on the beach all.
The food truck that parks there donated tacos to the cause.
Ram Head Trail St. John
#4 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
The southeast side of the island is much less populated, so there's less of the feeling that you're in a suburban park and more of a feeling that you're in a national park.
I highly recommend this outing if you like nature.
Trunk Bay Virgin Islands National Park
#5 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
One of only two Underwater National Parks, the other being in Hawaii, Trunk bay offers an amazing beach, an abundance of sea life and excellent food and amenities.
From Cruz Bay Harbor take a $6 per person cab to Trunk Bay National park. Park fee is $4 per person and you can bring Drinks snacks and lunch as well as beach gear into the park but they also sell provisions as well.

The owner was a wealth of information about all the beautiful plants and orchids and on how nature heals itself after the two hurricanes that passed through.
Would be a great retreat for those who love nature.

Isaac Bay St. Croix

If you love nature , beautiful pristine beaches and peace and quiet you will love this place!!!! Enjoy!
On the East End of the island park in a small parking area and take a 20 minute hike around the hills to two beautiful and secluded bays.
Salomon Beach St. John
#9 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
It was a short 20 minute hike from Cruz Bay (we started right at the national park visitor center), and the trail that leads there was easy to do (even in flip flops) and also very enjoyable.
Hike up the Lind Point Trail from the National Park Service Visitors Center (the stairs up are right behind it) or hike down from Caneel Bay past Honeymoon Beach.
Honeymoon Beach St. Thomas
#10 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
The chairs and umbrellas are free and this end is less crowded than the other where all the party boats park.
I think if you search around the waterfront near Mongoose Junction you can find the Zodiac, don’t ask the park service, I think that just causes friction.

Lindqvist Beach Smith Bay
#11 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
You pay to park and enter ($10), but everything about this place is quality; clean, secure, beautiful white sand, and a fantastic view - an archipelago view - the barrier islands and St Johns, Tortolo, and Jost Va...
Plenty of benches in the shade and gorgeous nature to explore without cruise ship tourists messing everything up.
Waterlemon Cay Virgin Islands National Park
#12 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
After a nice, level hike you'll find a very small beach area that you can park your butt for the day or you can continue on the trail to a nice rocky area where you can begin your day of snorkeling.
I usually get there by boat but understand that you can also get to it off the beach by hiking through the National Park.
#13 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
You will need to know the park schedule, the cruise ship schedule, and they also close for the turtles, so you would need to know that schedule!
The beach is attained via the Sandy Point Park entrance or by, better, a great walk from the end of the road at Frederiksted.
Maho Bay Virgin Islands National Park
#14 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
This beach in the national park has lovely sand beaches, decent snorkeling and usually has several sea turtles grazing in the depths.
the national park beaches on the north side are all gorgeous, this and francis are pretty little gems towards the end of the strip of beaches.

All of the north side national park beaches are so beautiful but we loved the end of this one so much we had a wedding ceremony here!
Water Island St. Thomas

So you take the ferry over, rent a golf cart that your kids are only too thrilled to drive over pot holed roads to a broken down fort at the end of the island with killer views, then park it on Honeymoon Beach for...
If you want a quiet vacation where you can get away from it all and connect with nature, this is the place for you.
#17 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Watch out if you park on the other side of the street: the parking lot is a plot of sand covering rocks that can hurt your car.
Francis Bay St. John
#18 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
We did the little nature hike down to it and saw a deer right in front of us and some cool birds.
Recommend getting there early to Park.Snorkling and nice trail through Mangroves.
Hawksnest Beach Virgin Islands National Park

Reef Bay Trail Virgin Islands National Park
#20 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
The guided trail hike is a one way trip, Down Hill! the guided trail hike ends with a boat ride back to the national Park center in Cruze Bay
We were lucky to walk with the park ranger for most of the hike and were able to ask all kinds of questions about the trail, plants, island and life as a park ranger.
Honeymoon Beach Caneel Bay
#21 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands

A quick stop at the Parks building got us wonderful directions from the terrific lady working there on how to follow the Lind Point Trail out to Honeymoon Beach.

Salt Pond Bay Virgin Islands National Park
#22 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
And visits from fish and sea turtles browsing close to shore offer a lovely communal with Nature.
Whenever the National Park is involved you can count on picnic tables, a pit toilet, trails, and good snorkeling.
#23 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
The flowering plants are spectacular, the grounds immaculate and conducive to just relaxing and enjoying nature.
We visited St George Botanical at the recommendation of Charles, a volunteer at the Salt River National Park.

Coral Bay St. John
#24 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Rent a Jeep to get here and simply park alongside the road to enjoy short or long hikes to great secluded beaches with superb snorkeling.
It's a trek on sometimes scary two lane , amusement park feeling narrow roads with roller coaster hills and hairpin turns but it's so laid back and beautiful.
Secret Harbour St. Thomas
#25 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Easy to park and walk down to the beach!
Was a little confusing where to park, since we knew part of the plan was lunch at the Sunset Grill, we took a spot noted for that.
Magens Bay Magens Bay
#26 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Laying on the beach, snorkeling, water skiing or just soaking up the sun with a sissy umbrella drink, Megan's Bay THE place to forget the world and simply enjoy the beauty of nature.
STUNNING GOOD TIP: very crowded at car park entrance however a short walk along the beach gets a lot quieter.

Point Udall St. Croix

Just park along the road and walk down any path you see towards the water and you'll see more breathtaking views.
Just a beautiful monument and gorgeous views of nature.
Buck Island Cove St. Croix
#28 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
It was surreal to be on this remote island with unusual plant life and surrounded by waters of fish and coves protected by a place that respects Nature!
We enjoyed a terrific sailing experience, snorkeling in the Park, and playing from the sandy beach on Buck island.
#29 of 133 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Once there, I bathed and enjoyed almost a spiritual baptism with Nature.
Park above the employee lot at Carambola and just follow the trail.
