This is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island of beautiful beaches. It tends to get a lot of wind so snorkeling is difficult. But just sitting in the shade and people watching including visitors from fabulous yachts off in the distance was fun.

Such a beautiful beach, but don't miss the tour that the National Park service provides (for free). It details the local history and explains the archaeological digs currently happening in the area.

This was a very nice beach/bay. I saw some people renting paddle boards and I wanted to but we ran out of time. My husband enjoyed visiting the small National Parks museum on sight and he learned a lot about the history of St. John. I enjoyed swimming and relaxing on my back in the beautiful water. There were people... More

Cinnamon is a very long beach with great views, but can get windy with strong surf at times. Snack bar staff are not very friendly.

Decided at the last minute to go to Cinnamon Bay this afternoon! It was a great decision. We got a parking space right in the front and the beach was not crowded. Lovely spot!

I know many people recommend Trunk Bay, but Cinnamon Bay offers so much more! The water is just as clear, the beach is awesome, and there is shade. I rented a paddle board with no problems, they even offered me a free lesson. I spent the afternoon paddleboarding and swimming, it was a relaxing and fun way to spend the... More

We have camped here twice and absolutely love the place. We get a bare site and bring everything. It is our type of place. Beach, camping, beauty all in one place! If you aren't a camper there are plenty of places on St Thomas that have everything you could imagine. We love the beauty of nature.

This was a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the incredible view. The water is actually as beautiful as the photos show. Snorkeling was wonderful. Beautiful place to experience the beauty of the island.
