VINP Announces Fee Free Weekend in Honor of Veteran’s Day


World-famous Trunk Bay

The management of Virgin Islands National Park announced today that in recognition of Veterans Day, November 10 through 12 has been declared a Fee Free weekend.

All visitors to Trunk Bay Beach on St. John will be admitted free.

“This day recognizes the sacrifice and service all who served in the military have made for our country, and for that we are grateful,” said VINP Acting Superintendent Mike Anderson.

Trunk Bay Beach is the most visited beaches on St. John and is home to an underwater trail where swimmers are able to snorkel over a reef and read plaques which identify coral and fish below.

VINP Acting Superintendent Anderson encouraged visitors to Trunk Bay Beach during this Veteran Day weekend to ride safari taxis or carpool in order to avoid over-crowding in the parking lot.
