Virgin Islands National Park occupies the majority of St. John, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Virgin Islands National Park is more than just beautiful beaches. Hike to plantation ruins to learn about a time when sugar dominated the island. Visit the ancient petroglyphs carved by the Taino Indians. Come snorkel the coral reefs to discover hidden marine life. Two-thirds of the island of St. John is national park, making it a unique destination for visitors from around the world.
Many of the beaches are fringed by coral reefs. They include Trunk Bay, backed by forests, and Francis Bay, whose calm waters are home to sea turtles. Annaberg Plantation has the ruins of an 18th-century sugar plantation. Trails through tropical forests lead to the ruins of Reef Bay Sugar Mill, in the south.
