Low key, very relaxing, stunning beach & snorkeling. Great Park Ranger talks & wonderful food. Loved the daily routine of getting up, putting on swim suit & cover-up, going to a lazy, yummy breakfast, then to the beach., Back for lunch, then back to beach, shower, then dinner. Games, reading or steel drum band, the early to bed. Do same... More

We took a taxi from the Westin resort, packed a lunch, found a shady spot and made camp for the day. Wow, what a beautiful beach -- white sand and blue blue water. The snorkeling was amazing! Afterwards, there was showers and restrooms which were extremely convenient. Less crowded than Trunk Bay where crusie ship excursions frequent. A perfect day.

Conventient and affordable with all the necessities. Beautiful beach which is great for snorkelling. The only dislike was not warm water for showers.

I preferred Cinnamon as an easily accessible beach as it was a bit less crowded than Trunk Bay. Traveling from NY, I try to avoid crowds at every turn. I was able to find a nice quiet spot on Cinnamon Bay Beach where everyone was spaced and not on top of one another. This beach also has a snack bar... More

Wow the first time I came here the water here was so rough & I got thrown back up on the beach with a cut ankle. Just came back again from here & this time it was still with a few waves that were so fun to ride & made this our favorite beach. Plus you have a restaurant here... More

Decided to skip Trunk Bay and head to Cinnamon Bay instead. The beach is beautiful--quiet and serene. The only negatives were the woman in the beach chair rental place was pathetic and the showers were primitive. Could have used a shelf and a hook and it's really challenging to wash and condition one's hair with one hand while the other... More

Trunk Bay is still our favorite beach on St. John. However, if you don't get there early enough, there is no place to park. So we went to Cinnamon Bay on this visit. It is another beautiful beach with soft sand and clear water. We were told there were chairs to rent, but found out from someone on the beach... More
