To those who know (and love) St John, it was not surprising that St John made the list of Foder’s Travel Blog’s story Undiscovered Caribbean: 8 Beaches You Haven’t Been To.  With well over 30 beaches, many of them small nooks reached only by secluded trails, St John is a wonderful island to discover and explore.
Here is the Foder’s write-up:
Reef Bay and Little Lameshur Bay, St. JohnTrunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay steal all the glory on charming St. Johnin the USVI, but if you’re looking for a little privacy head east from the main town of Cruz Bay into The Virgin Islands National Park, which covers around 60 percent of the island. Pick your way along the Reef Bay Trail, an easy 20-minute downhill walk, past petroglyphs and plantation ruins, and you’ll end up at Reef Bay beach, perhaps not as dramatic as the island’s showstoppers, but completely secluded and encircled by untouched green hills. Continue on the trail for another 3.6 miles if you wish to Little Lameshur Bay, another quiet stretch of sand. Just remember you’ve got to walk back—uphill.

I agree with the description of both beaches. Each is worth the trek! Descriptions of other secluded beaches on St John can be found in the popular books: ‘St John Beaches’ and ‘Off the Beaten Track‘.
