Wiki Vacation 2009: Trunk Bay

This is a mini-post, a part of the Wiki Vacation series of posts from my tour of the US Virgin Islands in 2009. The trip to Trunk Bay was our first visit to Saint John, and was limited to half a day, where we went with family, a newly-wed couple, and friends. Our second trip to Saint John followed a few day after, where we went alone, documented on the long post on Caneel Bay.

Some of the best beaches on Saint John are unfortunately private beaches that belong to Caneel Bay. Trunk Bay is probably the most beautiful and popular beach among public beaches on Saint John.

Because it is not a private beach, one can expect to see a lot more tourists, relatively speaking.

Trunk Bay is famous for its underwater snorkeling trail that spans more than six hundred feet, around that big rock in the picture.

That’s it. All of the pictures shown here, except for the personal ones, can be found on the Trunk Bay Wikimedia category. The next post in this series will focus on pictures I uploaded for Saint Thomas, Magens Bay, etc., from the same tour.

About Xinhai Dude 辛亥生

The name Xinhai Dude 辛亥生 is a pun in Chinese, as it means both “he who was born in Xinhai” as well as “he who studies Xinhai”. I had an ambitious plan to write something about the great Xinhai Revolution of 1911, thus my blog https://xinhaidude.com. But after an initial flurry of activities the initiative petered out. One day I will still carry it through. But for now, this website has turned into a conglomerate of my work on various topics of interest to me, including travel pictures, RC model airplane flying, ice skating, classical music composition, science fiction short stories, evolution and atheism.
