Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! We have great news to share with you about Trunk Bay … the water is back on! Woohoo! Now this may not sound super exciting, but I assure you, it is.
So you may be wondering why I’m excited about water. Well for starters, it shows progress and that’s always great. As you may know, we lost the reverse osmosis system at Trunk during Hurricane Irma. It took a bit, but the system is now repaired. This means that the bathrooms have reopened, as have the showers.
This also means that the concession area can reopen. Will they reopen immediately? Probably not. But they can now reopen because there is water on site.
The concessions at Trunk are operated by Redwoods Parks, the same company that oversees the campground at Cinnamon Bay. We’ve heard that representatives from the company have been on island in recent weeks, but we do not have any further information regarding the reopening of the Trunk concessions or Cinnamon Bay campground at this time.
For those of you looking to relax in a chair or perhaps snorkel the famous underwater snorkel trail, the rental hut at Trunk is open to fulfill all of your beach needs.
And more great news… Trunk Bay is still free of charge. I saw a ranger in the booth earlier this week. She stated that they planned to start charging soon, but she didn’t have an exact timeframe. We will keep you all posted on this.
In the meantime, have an amazing day everyone!
