The Virgin Islands are known for being a mecca for anyone wanting some time in the sand and surf. So as you make your vacation plans and research the area, our crew at St. John Car Rental urges you to check out a few of our favorite beach destinations.

1. Hawksnest Bay

The Hawksnest Bay Beach is located on the northwest side of the island and is a local favorite. Its soft sand and beautiful views make a perfect place to relax for the day. Note that you’ll want to arrive early to get the best sun.

2. Trunk Bay

Heralded by the Travel Channel, Trunk Bay is among St. John’s finest beaches and part of the National Park Service. At Trunk Bay, you can relax in the sun and gaze out on the crystal clear waters. If you’re into snorkeling or scuba diving, the coral reefs are located right offshore, and you can even rent snorkeling equipment nearby.

3. Francis Bay

Located on the northern side of the island, Francis Bay is known for being a very family-friendly destination. No matter the tide, there’s plenty of beach real estate for everyone. You can enjoy snorkeling, sunbathing, shaded picnics, building sand castles, and much more.
