Honeymoon Beach (located next to Salomon Beach) is one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Virgin Islands National Park on St. John. Honeymoon Beach is home to some of the last remaining leaning palms the island as once famous for prior to Hurricane Maria in 2017 along with crystal blue waters, white sands, along with a snack shack (that has booze).

Honeymoon Beach is located on the north shore of St. John, in the US Virgin Islands. It is a great beach for swimming and wading. The water is typically calm, and it is a spectacular crystal-clear turquoise color, almost pool-like. The beach has soft, white sand, and the water gradually deepens.
On Honeymoon Beach you can catch some rays or choose to relax in the shade. The tree line at Honeymoon Beach includes large sea grape trees and coconut trees. You can spread your beach blanket near the trees to take advantage of the natural shade.
Honeymoon Beach is a pretty beach with a great view! From the beach you will enjoy a panoramic that includes St. Thomas in the distance, the nearby islands of Grass Cay, Mingo Cay, and Lovango Cay, boats cruising by, and a great variety of blues and teals of the ocean. From the water your view inland is of the sandy shore and the lush green hillsides of St. John island.
There is good snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach. On the west side of the beach there is a patch reef. Swim and snorkel around the rocky headland that extends into the water between Honeymoon Beach and Solomon Bay next door, and you will find the reef. The reef is in semi-shallow water which makes it easy to see the fish and corals up close. The reef sustained damage during the 2017 hurricane season. As a result, you may need to snorkel into slightly deeper water to see marine life. On the east side of the beach, you can snorkel along the point between Honeymoon Beach and Caneel Bay. Occasionally you might see a turtle or ray while snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach.
If you decide to hike in on Lind Point Trail, you can also stop at Solomon Bay along the way. It's a two for one trail! Enjoy two beautiful beaches on one hike. On the trail you may see birds, hermit crabs, butterflies, a donkey or two, maybe even a deer.
Tip: The Caneel Spur Trail is intersected by Route 20, part of the trail is on one side of the road, and the other part of the trail is on the other side. Take the part that goes downhill to the beach.
Various boat charters from St. Thomas and St. John include Honeymoon Beach on their itineraries. If you visit on a boat charter, you will have a few hours to enjoy the beach. Boat charters typically arrive in the late morning and usually leave by midafternoon.
Honeymoon Beach was historically a quiet, often sparsely populated beach. The beach became popular, and sometimes crowded, a few years ago when amenities were added. In early 2022 these amenities all closed. Honeymoon Beach has returned to being a quiet, often sparsely populated beach for the time being. The amenities will return in November 2022, and so will the beach goers.

Honeymoon Island State Park is also a popular wedding destination. The beautiful island landscape makes a perfect backdrop for weddings and parties. The park offers several wedding packages and is a local favorite amongst Florida beach wedding locations.
The beaches of Honeymoon Island State Park are perfect for lounging but also offer a wide range of activities. Beachgoers can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, surfing, shelling, and fishing along the 4 miles of shoreline within the park.
Nesting birds like owls and ospreys can be found in the pineland areas of the park. Shorebirds such as herons and egrets are often seen along the beaches and estuaries. Gopher tortoises, armadillos, raccoons, and rattlesnakes can also be found in the park, mostly in the forested areas.
It is not currently possible to stay overnight on Honeymoon Island State Park.

Splurge on a room at The Plaza for easy access to late night Central Park carriage rides and hard-to-score dinner reservations at Le Jardinier before renting a car and driving out to the Hamptons to check in to The Chequit, an adorably stylish 19th-century bed and breakfast tucked away on Shelter Island.
Not many experiences can top the romance of spending a honeymoon in Egypt, where sunset cruises on the Nile River and afternoon teas spent on a shaded terrace are everyday occurrences. Wake up to a private view of the Great Pyramids of Giza at the Marriott Mena House in Cairo and fall to sleep to the soothing winds blowing over the Red Sea at The Oberoi Beach Resort, Sahl Hasheesh.
No honeymoon to Australia would be complete without at least a few days in Sydney to tour the Sydney Harbour or stroll around the idyllic Potts Point neighborhood before opting for opulence at the Langham Sydney hotel. The romantic hamlet of Hamilton Island is less than a three-hour flight from Sydney and will have you and your spouse surrounded by The Whitsundays in a private bungalow at The Palm Bungalows, just minutes from the Great Barrier Reef.
Arriving later in the day and spending just a few hours (and looking for something other than Sapphire) we'd stick to STT to avoid the travel time to STJ, and avoid the more popular beaches if other ships arrive before you. If no ships are docked in Crown Bay, Lindbergh Bay (aka Emerald Beach) may be a great choice, even though it is closer to Crown Bay than Havensight. Or Coki is a beautiful, small beach if you've not been?
The only reason we dismiss Magens is we've been once and it's just kinda "blah" to us as compared to the East End beaches, especially Sapphire. But that is just us, it may be an ideal day to check it out depending on the crowds!
Yes I see you are scheduled to dock in CB so Lindbergh would be perfect for a few hours! Honeymoon Beach on Water Island is another option if you haven't been, small beach area with a food truck and free lounges, rustic public restrooms. Also very crowded anymore with excursion operators dropping their guests for lunch. 041b061a72
