Just an easy 10 minute hike west of the Salt Pond Bay beach on the Coral Bay side of St. John, is Drunk Bay. Despite its name, this bay is not named for being the spot where St. Johnians come to party.

But rather, the name ‘Drunk’ is taken from the Dutch Creole word for ‘drowned’ – as this is a rare St. John bay that isn’t protected and calmed by a reef. Thus, a lot of shipwrecks and drownings happen off this windswept and wave pounded rocky beach.

We had been curious to check this beach out, and having an island visitor was a perfect opportunity to go explore something new!
