VINP: Changes in Services at Trunk Bay

Virgin Islands National Park News Release

Release Date: August 19, 2019

St John, VI – Virgin Islands National Park is announcing changes in visitor services provided by its concessioner at Trunk Bay Beach. Beginning August 26 2019, 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 is 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 which will remain in place until both facilities are completed. The Park and its concessioner, Cinnamon Bay Resort, apologizes for this inconvenience but recognizes 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.
