Hansen Bay Beach East End
#2 of 135 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
Highly recommend Hansen Bay! Small donation to park and sit on the beach all.

Maho Beach Cruz Bay
#3 of 135 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...

Ram Head Trail St. John
#4 of 135 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 135 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.
What an amazing beach, some of the most beautiful water I have seen, and in an amazing national park, what a great combo!!!

Salomon Beach St. John
#9 of 135 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.
Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge St. Croix
#10 of 135 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
The beach is attained via the Sandy Point Park entrance or by, better, a great walk from the end of the road at Frederiksted.
It's also a nature preserve to turtles.
Waterlemon Cay Virgin Islands National Park
#11 of 135 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.
The marine park beside whistling key was full of life and made for an excellent snorkel trip.

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.

Honeymoon Beach St. Thomas
#14 of 135 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.

The scenery is amazing and the national park is excellent.

Rhythms at Rainbow Beach Frederiksted
#21 of 135 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.
Coral Bay St. John
#22 of 135 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.
St. George Village Botanical Garden Frederiksted
#23 of 135 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.

Secret Harbour St. Thomas

Point Udall St. Croix

There is a circle drive around the millennial monument (it’s a giant sundial) park where you can and walk around to enjoy panoramic ocean views.
Just a beautiful monument and gorgeous views of nature.
Buck Island Cove St. Croix
#27 of 135 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.
Magens Bay Magens Bay
#28 of 135 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
A heart shaped strand of blue and turquoise waters at a pristine park where you can rent an umbrella, get a bite to eat, rent snorkel equipment, or just lay out under the sun.
For the adventurous there is a trail installed by the Nature Conservancy to hike away from the beach and up the hill to a pretty view from a platform.

#29 of 135 Nature & Parks in U.S. Virgin Islands
We came here last week for a beach day, and it was pretty much perfect...its easy to park in their lot, a quick walk to the beach, and you can relax as long as you want to.
Even with the weather there was a windsurfer holding his own against mother nature.
