The beach was B-E-A-U-TIFUL. I loved the sand, the way the water moved, the colors, the sounds, the snorkeling--what isn't there to love--somehow this was my favorite over Trunk, Hawksnest, and Maho--can I go back now?

Although this beach was very nice and great for snorkeling, it wasn't easy to lay and relax. It was a bit windy but so u comfortable due to the amount of sand flies and mosquitoes. We were all eaten up by the time we left.

We took a dingy (Zodiac type semi rigid boat) for the day and explored many beaches on St. John. This was by far the best. We were at a place on the beach where we were basically alone. The beach was white sand and the water blue w/high visibility. In short what paradise should look like.

This is a beautiful beach and compares with Trunk. However, if it is windy, you would probably want to head to Trunk. Water is clear and fantastic as is the snorkeling.

The bay is gorgeous! They even had camping and cabins for rent. I could definitely go back and stay at their campgrounds. Don't forget your mosquito spray.

Great snorkeling and the beach is gorgeous, one of my favorites that I've been to in the Caribbean. The shade that you can get under the palm trees helps when you burn like I do too.

Well, its a beach you can pick a shade and stay the fool day with your cooler and snorkel gear. You can hire some SUPs and get a ride with the owner until the end of next beach (its the only rental facility in the place, you cant miss), and come back paddling and snorkeling. One of te top days... More

Loved Cinnamon Bay! Beautiful Beach, and actually got parking when we couldn't find any at Trunk Bay. Tons of rentals (kayaks, boards) unlike other nearby beaches.

Went back to St John at the end of our vacation and picked Cinnamon Bay Beach as our destination. We found some shade at the east end of the beach. The coral reef is a little farther out here but we found another bit of coral in close and another larger area down at the east end of the beach.... More

Cinnamon Bay was not the quietest beach on the St John, but there was plenty of room to get away from other beach goers and have your own corner of paradise. The water was clear and calm. There is actually some decent snorkeling here too with quite a bit of living coral and plenty of fish. When you visit St... More
