People from all over the world travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands for a little rest and relaxation. However, the tranquil waters and warm Caribbean breezes create an environment where weary travelers can actually escape from the reality they know. There is no easier place to escape to this alternate world than at Salomon Bay on St. John Island. Just as soon as you step foot on this beach you are swept away to paradise.

Location: Salomon Bay, St. John (U.S. Virgin Islands)
