Salt River Bay National Historic Park & Ecological Preserve

Dedicated in 1993, this national ecological preserve and park features a submarine canyon, the largest remaining mangrove forest in the U.S.V.I. and objects of cultural significance, such as a prehistoric ceremonial hall and burial site. (And this preserve is just minutes away from Ocean’s Edge, making it a perfect morning or afternoon excursion.).

The Salt River was where Columbus landed on November 14, 1493. The park contains the site of the original Carib village explored by Columbus and his men, including the only ceremonial ball court ever discovered in the Lesser Antilles.
