It was a beautiful day at Cinnamon. The beach and water are picturesque and I didn't want to leave. The boys spent their time snorkeling and the girls paddle boarded. It was very windy, so everyone got a good workout on this day.

Cinnamon Bay is a great beach. The food from the pavilion is great! It's a tourist destination, but if you are here for the day , then it is a place to see! If you are here for the week, then work it in. There are so many paths along the roadsides. If you see one take it. It's a... More

We were in St. Thomas on a cruise stop. Since we've been there before we took a ferry over to St. John's. We chose Cinnamon Bay and were so happy we did. We found a quiet spot and really felt like it was paradise. Don't hesitate to go.

if you want a gorgeous beach like in the pictures, avoid the tourist buses and cruise ships by going early....8 am ish or after 3:30 and you will practically have the place to yourself. It is a bit of a swim out to the big rock where the fish like to hang around, but we went in late afternoon and... More

I would have given this beach an excellent rating if it weren't for the angry women in the little beach shop. They are huffy and rude. Otherwise this is a great little beach. There are cabins for rent for overnight, bathrooms, outdoor showers, shady spots to sit under and of course, clear blue water.

We stayed 4 nights in the campground (c-8) tent site. The rest of St. John was busy for the slow season, but the campground we had to ourselves...there was maybe 10-15 other people staying there at this time....which was awesome...all morning/evening the beach was to ourselves. the bathroom and shower area could use more regular cleaning, probably because they were...

This is one of the best beaches if not the best beach on St John. Always a nice breeze and great sand. You can snorkel off the beach, just look for people making noise through their snorkel gear.
