How do you get to Salomon and Honeymoon Beach? Hiking in on the Lind Point Trails or taking a shuttle from the Caneel Bay Resort entrance. These trails are extremely popular and have two easy public access locations:
1. Lower Lind Point Trail — National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay.
2. Upper Lind Point Trail — Trailhead located next to the Virgin Islands National Park sign on the left on top of the first hill heading out of Cruz Bay on the North Shore Road. There is an access road with a small parking lot accommodating several cars right before the sign.
The Upper and Lower Lind Point trails are a great way to combine a destination beach while experiencing the incredible views of the Lind Point Battery Overlook (.3 miles) of Cruz Bay and the North Shore, as well as you get a little taste of what it is like to hike in a tropical forest. These are considered easy hikes, although if at all possible, wear something other than flip flops. It is very rocky in some places, especially heading down to either beach. Full sun for part of the hike. Salomon Beach has no amenities and a nice getaway from it all! Honeymoon Beach is the only isolated beach with amenities in which Visitors cannot drive their vehicles to, but so worth the effort to get there. Families love this hike as the kids get to experience the native plantlife like cactuses, jumbie trees, coral vines, and wildlife like donkeys, lizards, hermit crabs, and birds. And then the kids end at a world famous Caribbean beach, what could be better! Pack a lunch and have fun for the whole day! Bring your own snorkel gear or rentals are available.
Honeymoon Beach is operated by the Caneel Bay Beach Club, so you will have access to luxury amenities (cabanas, chairs, and more), food and bar service, and souvenirs. This is also a popular snorkeling stop destination for boat charter day trips.
