The Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument is located along the coastline of St John Island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The physical address of the Monument is Hurrican Hole in Cruz Bay Creek on St John Island and the National Monument is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The park has an underwater snorkel trail at Trunk Bay, which is an excellent way for beginners to explore the local corals and marine life. The trail features information plaques, which offer information about the coral reefs and various species of fish that live in and around them.
The Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument not only covers over half the island of St. John, but Hassel Island as well, which is home to over a hundred historic sites that tell the story of the region’s prehistoric past. Together these two islands create one of the pristine and comprehensive landscapes in the Caribbean. Almost every beach and bay within the park feature significant archaeological and prehistoric sites dating back to as early as 840 BC, and which offer a deeper insight into the history of the Caribbean region and the local Taino people who greeted Columbus on his arrival.
