The Trail that leads to Drunk Bay on St. John begins at the very end of Salt Pond Beach and heads inland towards the salt pond. It is a relatively easy walk with  no hills and takes about 20-30minutes. The trail then continues North on to the rocky, windswept Drunk Bay beach.

The easterly trades bring ashore an abundance of flotsam, which makes for great beach combing. Do not swim here. Breaking surf, currents and jagged rocks and coral make it too dangerous for swimming.

Drunk Bay has inspired the imagination of visitors to create dozens of coral sculptures, most of which can be found by going around the large rocks to your left as you enter the beach.
