Well folks, we have some great news to start off the week here on St. John. The National Park Service opened yet another beach over the weekend. Trunk Bay has been cleared and cleaned, and is ready to take guests. This brings the total number of beaches that are officially open to three. Hawksnest and Honeymoon were reopened last week.
As you may all remember, Trunk sustained a considerable amount of damage during Hurricane Irma. Since then, crews from Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Grand Teton National Park, Big Bend National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gettysburg National Military Park, Yellowstone National Park and of course the Virgin Islands National Park have been working diligently to clean up the brush and get the area ready for visitors.
Because the entry booth was damaged during the storms, there is currently no charge to get into Trunk Bay.
Our friend Yelena Rogers took the following pictures at Trunk Bay last week. How beautiful does it look??!!
Have a great day everyone!
