This is a nice place to stop as you are headed to the North Shore beaches or on your way back to Cruz Bay. It is a very easy short walk. The views are lovely and the windmill is interesting. We have stopped here a couple of times for pictures. Usually we are here for no more than 20-30 minutes.... More

We saw this while we were on a boat going out to other snorkling areas. It's great to see and is in good condition.

One of the easiest hikes to get a taste of past and photo ops of 180 degree view of gorgeous beaches. Great place to bring a picnic lunch if you want to hang out. A trail near the entrance takes you to Denis Bay where you'll likely have the beach all to yourself.

My Jeep was vandalized and personal items were stolen when I visited Peace Hill in February. Take all your personal belongings with you when you lock your vehicle here, as you won't have them if you leave them in your locked vehicle! The park venues have no surveillance and park visitor should be warned that it is NOT SAFE to... More

So sorry that happened to you. Unfortunately, it is true of vehicle parking in most of St. John beaches. It's okay for beach stuff, but not expensive items or bags that look like they may contain valuables. It happens very seldom, but although St. John seems like a paradise, it's necessary to use "street sense" as if you were back... More

A short walk to see some history. Not as large as Annanberg but interesting ruins to see and great for pictures.

Park in the lot and hike to the top. The views are amazing. Hurricane Marilyn took out the Peace Hill Statue years ago, but the windmill is still there and the view is worth it. It is not a strenuous hike even in summer months.

The trail is short (.1mi) but rocky and steep, so wear appropriate shoes! Lovely view of Hawksnest Beach from the summit.

A beautiful short hike for couples or families with kids. Definitely worth a detour if you're driving around St. John's.
