Out of all the beaches on this list, we saved the best for last. One of my favorite beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands is Trunk Bay. No wonder it is one of the most popular beaches on St. John. This breathtakingly beautiful beach has plenty of soft, powdery, white sand for you to sink your feet into. If you’re a snorkeler, this beach offers one of the coolest things on St. John: an underwater snorkeling trail maintained by the National Park! There’s even underwater signs that provide a lot of interesting information.
