St. John is two-thirds National Park and is an ideal hiking island. At Concordia, you can start right outside your door!
A short hike on our Nature Trail puts you on Salt Pond Bay Beach and connects you with the Ram Head Trail and the Drunk Bay Trail.
Drunk Bay Trail, a grand beach combing hike, is an easy, level and interesting walk along side Salt Pond, used for centuries to gather sea salt.
Ram Head Trail is a slightly more strenuous but totally doable hike up to a spectacular 360 degree outlook 200 feet above the waves crashing at the base of the cliff. Full moon night hikes to Ram Head make a memorable and romantic evening. Take a flashlight and camera as you start at the Concordia parking lot.
One hike popular with our guests includes taking the bus from Concordia the start of the Reef Bay Trail on Centerline Road. You will hike down to The Petroglyphs and Reef Bay, then over to Lameshur Bay and then by road back to Concordia. This is a rewarding full day hike, so take plenty of water and lunch.
Starting in Coral Bay is the Johnny Horn Trail, a hike past several ruins to Leinster Bay and Waterlemon Cay on the North Shore. You can then continue on to Maho Bay Camps, our sister resort.
