Salomon Beach is a beautiful short stretch of beach and its remote location accessed only by hiking keeps the crowds away. There are two access points (see below). You will be happy you took this hike as there is lots of fun to be had enjoying the terrain (sometimes rocky), plants and wildlife as you pass breathtaking overlooks along the way. You will definitely find some great snorkeling at Salomon Beach on the right side along the rocky outcroppings. For some folks, this beach is just a stopover as they head to Honeymoon Beach which is adjacent.
- Stairway behind the National Park Visitor Center. There is limited parking. The stairway leads to a road taking you to the Lower Lind Point Trail head. Just follow the signs. There is an option to take the upper or lower Lind Point Trail. You can choose either way depending on how adventurous you’re feeling. Salomon Beach is the first beach you come to from this direction and many folks like to stop there first.
- Caneel Spur Trail directly off the North Shore Road. Head out past Mongoose Junction on the North Shore Road and parking will be at the top of the hill on the left (about 1/2 mile). There is a large National Park Sign and before the speed bump, turn left onto the access road and parking is immediately on the left. From this parking area walk back out to the North Shore Road and follow the path on the left down the hill, following signs to Honeymoon Beach.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU HIKE: Flip flops are not advisable. Does this mean that you cannot hike the trail in Flip Flops? No, you can, but let’s just say you are going to be wishing you had worn other shoes. Some parts of the path are very rocky.
