For day two on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), we spent the morning relaxing at our hotel, the Caneel Bay Resort (Rockefeller’s former personal estate) where we enjoyed a nice buffet breakfast next to the beach. After digesting, we took a cab over the steep island hills to Trunk Bay, which is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. By the way, be sure to ask your cabbie to stop atop one of the hills so you can get a pretty birds-eye-view of the beautiful bay from above!
Anyway, Condé Nast Traveler magazine, among many others, has consistently voted Trunk Bay one of the Ten Best Beaches in the World… and I don’t blame them: the white sand next to the crystal clear turquoise water is stunning. It’s very photographable (and one of the most photographed beaches in the world). But I will say this… and again, we ran into this same problem on Jost Van Dyke… the beach can get majorly crowded. After paying an entry fee, we walked to the far end of the beach to find somewhat of a little privacy to spread out our towels and relax… but there were just a lot of people. And while it’s always fun to explore and see what else is out there (I highly recommend checking this beach out if you are visiting) – we couldn’t help but think of the beautiful (quiet / private) beach just steps from our hotel room (Scott Beach)… spoiled, I know.
However, there is a really cool 225-yard-long underwater snorkeling trail at Trunk Bay, which includes plaques along the trail that explain the types of marine life you will see and information about the coral reef, which was helpful. We saw some beautifully bright colored fish as well as a few stingrays in the bay.
I wore this matching skirt and top set because it was such a beautiful and hot day and it was perfect for staying cute and cool. I got a lot of compliments throughout the day on this look so I felt extra good wearing it.
Anyway, thanks for visiting. Enjoy your Wednesday.
