Virgin Islands National Park on St. John has announced changes in visitor services provided by its concessioner at Trunk Bay Beach. Beginning Aug. 26, food and beverage service at Trunk Bay Beach will be limited to a mobile food truck as the retail shop and bar building is scheduled to close for renovations.

The retail shop and bar service are expected to re-open in November; however, the mobile food truck will continue to provide limited food service until a new snack bar facility is constructed in 2020.

Visitors to Trunk Bay Beach are urged to exercise caution in and around the safety fencing that will remain in place until both facilities are completed. The park and its concessioner, Cinnamon Bay Resort, apologize for this inconvenience but believe this is an important step that will provide improved visitor services and facilities at Trunk Bay Beach.

Snorkel rental services will not be affected and will continue to remain available to beach goers.

Persons needing additional information can contact Paul Jones at 776-6201, ext. 224. Visit the park web page at
