Cinnamon Bay is as beautiful as it sounds. The white sandy shoreline is a perfect spot to relax with friends. We had a layover here after we explored the ruins in the Park. The best part at about Cinnamon Bay with the numerous water sport rentals available. The bay is perfect the get adventurous!

Cinnamon Bay is a beautiful and quiet beach, it is 15-20 min from the port of St. John by taxi. We were there in a very busy cruise day (5 ships) and there were some people, but not crowded. On the way to the beach we first stoped at Trunk Bay (The most recommended beach on the island) but it... More

We spent a day here snorkeling, going through the beach side museum and walking across the main road to the ruins. If you can, spend a whole day at this picturesque location and take in all that it has to offer, the café has good food for a quick bite and the convenience store has reef safe sunblock if you...

This setting is wonderful. Walked through the camping area-through tropical trees and plantings down to the beach. Gorgeous beach and well worth the stop.

We like this beach better than Trunk Bay. Some of the smaller less visited beaches are nicer and with better snorkeling. This is a great place to rent a kayak and head over to Whistling Key for some awesome snorkeling!

Very nice long white sand beach. Plenty of sandy beach for everyone. This place is also offering some kind of camping sites and cabins. Additional info about camping could be found on internet.

This beach is just beautiful! Looking out to the water, at the mountain islands, ships, waves, etc... it is hard to believe this place is real. Then swimming out to the water, and looking back at the shore, again...it's just other-wordly. This is a crescent shaped beach, with scenery all around. It's pretty big and was busy the day we...

When exploring the beaches of St. John you are often secluded. Cinnamon Bay was a nice change from being alone (believe it or not). The cruise ship people come here but we didnt mind some company. We rented stand up paddle boards from the rental shop right on the beach. The man running the shop was very personable and took... More

Quiet and serene, good place to read, relax and snorkel. The facilities were welcome to rinse off before getting into our car.
