The beach is nice, even the .3 mile walk down to the beach is worth the effort. After spending time at other beaches, this beach seemed louder and busier than one would like on a vacation get away. A great place for families, but perhaps not of those looking for a quiet get away.
Family with teen boys went here to snorkel. We saw a lot of pretty fish. Hiked to Ram Head .. WOW what a view. Would for sure visit this beach and do the hike again.
We love spending time at Salt Pond, it's always a good snorkel! The beach is usually not too crowded, although each year it gets a bit more so. Lots to see underwater here!
It is usually a quiet beach, too far for most cruise ship people. Very calm clear water, good snorkeling. We saw lots of turtles. Do the 1 hour round trip to Rams Head hike from Salt Pond beach, great views.
Bring plenty of sunscreen. If you're stating near Cruz Bay, be prepared for a 45 minute car ride. It's accessible only by a .3 mile walk downhill, than back up after a long, leisurely day. Bring snorkel gear. Parking is limited in the lot but adequate along the road.
We hiked Ram's Head the day before and decided to go back to Salt Pond to try the snorkeling - and we were glad we did. The sandy beach is nice and makes for easy entry with all your snorkel gear. The waters were calm and pretty clear so it made for good snorkel conditions. We saw some beautiful fish... 更多
I loved this beach! Incredible swimming in a protected bay with gentle waves. Pretty sweet snorkeling! Two excellant short hikes to Drunk Bay and Ram's Head Point! So much wildlife both in the ocean and on the hikes. Snorkeling toward the left side of the beach blew me away.
After fighting crowds ar Maho and Hawknest (we didn't even try Trunk) we were pleasantly surprised to find a tranquil beach on a cruise day with five ships in port at St Thomas. There is a walk down that may be difficult for those with mobility issues. Snorkeling wasn't the best on the island but after a current filled outing... 更多
This is a lovely beach with 2 great hiking trails. You can make the hot Ram's Head hike and then cool off in the beautiful water! On the way listen to the rocks on Blue Cobblestone beach. You can also hike (very short, flat, and easy) to Drunk Bay which is wild and not safe for swimming! The only downside... 更多
