Haulover Bay (North) Beach

East End, St. John

On the far eastern end of St. John, just on the edge of the U.S. Virgin Islands National Park, you'll find a trail sign pointing to the north. Following the sign will take you on a path through the woods where you'll pass a salt pond, walk across a boardwalk, and after traveling a total of 500 feet you will arrive at Haulover Bay and Haulover Bay North Beach. This short walk separating this beach and Haulover Bay (South) makes it a fun trip to visit both a beach on the north and the south side of St. John a breeze!

The beach has a fun adventure feel to it and backs up the hiking with some really great snorkeling. nurse sharks and spotted eagle rays have been spotted just off the shore and you can find some great coral structures. There are also amazing views of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands across the Sir Francis Drake Channel. At night you can see all the cars driving along the waterfront and can imagine where they are going. People in another country, but just across the water.
