Trunk Bay, she’s like the pretty girl in class, always getting all the attention. She’s the most photographed, the most photogenic, the most popular. Just because she’s the prettiest, doesn’t mean she’s the best, but you do have to give credit when credit is due, Trunk Bay is a beautiful girl.
Cruisers from St. Thomas line up for a chance to day trip it over to St. John and Trunk Bay. They ferry over, pile into cabs, enter the National Park and glide past the beautiful Hawksnest Bay. They stop for photos at the Trunk Bay scenic overlook and unload at their destination, the most famous beach in the USVI. It’s popular for many reasons; underwater snorkeling trail, concessions, life-guards, crystal clear water and soft white sand. I think that scenic overlook sells it though. That view is one of the best in all the Caribbean.
My morning at Trunk Bay was quiet. It was early and the normally crowded beach was still hiding in the shadows of the morning sun. The tourist have not yet arrived, so I set up my camera and filmed the pretty girl in action.
Trunk Bay, St. John – Island Lime Videos
As with the other Island Lime Videos I shot on St. John, time was of the essence. No time to roll out a beach towel and soak in the Caribbean sun. No time to snorkel the underwater trail. No time to lime. The noon ferry back to St. Thomas was staring me down like an unapproving girlfriend.
