Favorite photography destinations: Virgin Islands National Park

February 26, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Virgin Islands National Park is located on the island of St. John in the Caribbean.  Encompassing 7,000 acres (about 60% of the island's landmass), the park also features 5,650 acres of pristine underwater habitat.  Although relatively small in size, there are many activities available including hiking, snorkeling/diving, birdwatching, and boating.


When we visited the park in the summer of 2013, we stayed at a resort in Caneel Bay - the only facility allowed within the boundaries of the park.  The resort's grounds were home to a wide variety of wildflowers, deer, birds, and donkeys.  The donkeys were brought to the island to help with the sugar cane industry.


A snorkeler's paradise, Virgin Islands National Park is home to many coral reefs, tropical fish and sea turtles.  When we were snorkeling, it was not uncommon to see a dozen or so feeding in the bay.


Here are a few of my memorable photographs of the park:
