Drunk Bay is located on the southeastern side of St. John, the trail is .3 miles past Salt Pond Bay Beach. Drunk Bay is on the windward side of the island, which makes it very rocky; this is not a beach to go swimming at.
The first time I came across Drunk Bay Beach was when I was staying at Concordia for the weekend. As soon as you step onto Drunk Bay Beach you realize how it got its name; from all the rocks and broken coral your feet start to act as though you’ve been at a bar.
Once you step onto Drunk Bay Beach you will also discover all the incredible coral and stone sculptures that people have made. Most of these sculptures are in the forms of people and scattered all along the beach. I really don’t know how this tradition got started but I had a blast photographing the sculptures. I do realize how the tradition of making these happy little coral people keeps on going because there is something about being surrounded by them that compels you to make your own coral person. I definitely recommend making your way out to Drunk Bay Beach on your next visit to St. John.
