Family Attractions for Spring Break in the Virgin Islands

The kids are out of school, and there’s no place like the Caribbean to relax and unwind for some quality family fun. Get the scoop on the best family-friendly spots of the Virgin Islands here:

1. Picnic at Hawksnest Beach, St. John
Pack a lunch and head to this favorite North Shore beach, which saw some of the least impact of the hurricanes. Hawsknest offers an easy day of fun for all, perfect for the family with little ones. Pick this beach if you need to park nearby, and lug a bunch of gear back and forth from the car with ease. Then kick back with a good book and enjoy the pristine white sands.

2. Gibney Beach, St. John
If you’re looking for a secluded beach, this is the place. Just a short swim away from Hawksnest, Gibney is a hidden gem: beautiful, peaceful, with soft white sand. Gibney waters are known for being extremely calm and clear, which makes for easy play time for the kids.

3. Snorkel at Salt Pond Bay
If your kids are a bit bigger, and love to explore, the scenic Salt Pond Bay is an ideal option. This beautiful little cove and beach offers superb snorkeling, where you might see tangs, sergeant majors, parrot fish, sea turtles, and more. Another great feature of Salt Pond is its graded trails, with a trailhead starting right at the beach. The trek is rocky, so bring close-toed shoes for everyone.

4. Family Hike at Ram’s Head, St. John
Does your family include older teens? Reignite their sense of wonder to rival the draw of technology with a family nature hike at Ram’s Head Trail. Heads up: The uphill hike is challenging, and not for the faint of heart. Bring plenty of water and sneakers to make it over the cobblestone beach. The view at the end of the trail is worth every step.

5. Beginning Nature Enthusiast: Lind Point Trail, St. John
If you prefer an easy trail for smaller legs, try Lind Point Trail. It’s level, with lovely, sweeping views rewarding you right from the start. Finish up with a refreshing dip in the blue waters at Honeymoon Beach.

6. Catch a Sunset in the Water at Francis Bay, St. John
Spend the end of the day snorkeling and catch a sunset at Francis Bay, St. John. The water here is shallow, cool, and calm – great for family snorkeling expeditions. Spot turtles, stingrays, and many different kinds of fish. Note: Bring your own shade, such as a large umbrella or tent.

7. Rent a Luxury Boat with Sonic Charters
Load up the whole family in a Sonic Charters boat charter and spend the day exploring your favorite hangouts of the Virgin Islands. Want a truly unique experience? Grab lunch at Pizza Pi VI, the floating pizza joint accessible only by boat.
