Our family enjoys spending a day at Little Lameshur Bay! We find a spot with sun and shade for the day and just relax! The snorkeling is pretty good. A "must do" is take the very short hike up to the ruins...incredible view and photo spot!

Little Lameshur Bay is not easy to get to, but well worth it. To get there you have to go over to the Coral Bay side of the island, go past Salt Pond, to the "end of the road." Most guidebooks tell you not to go there but all of the hills are now paved so if you have a... More

Little Lameshur Bay is beautiful and if you can go before noon you will probably be alone. The rocky bay next door, Great Lameshur Bay, has great snorkelling on the left {looking out to the water} side, lots of turtles and rays, many reef fish varieties including large platter size French Angels and schools of small Barracuda. Great to stay... More

Don't want too many people finding out about this hidden jewel. Takes a bit of effort to get to, but well worth it. Convenient parking close to beach, sandy beach, calm waters, excellent snorkeling, cooking grills and portapotty bathroom facilities.

After a week of trying all the lovely Northern beaches including Hawksnest, Maho and Trunk Bay we took a very bumpy ride to Lameshur. The road was not paved, had many areas with big dips full of water and no fun after a full tummy from Miss Vie's. You really need to have a jeep or equivalent vehicle to manage... More

This beautiful spot was one of my favorite on St John. The road to get there is pretty terrible, which keeps a lot of people out! Once you get there, the beach is right next to the parking. The ruins are right on the water and the view is not to be missed. I could have sat there all day!... More

During our vacation to USVI we wanted to snorkle as much as possible. We found this place by accident while trying out some of the off-roading routes. There's a tiny beach that's a bit rocky but once you're in the water, everything is 100% awesome! I felt like I was in a giant aquarium. I have never seen so much... More

This is worth the rugged drive. A perfect quiet little beach. Pack a cooler no amenities. We had some great snorkeling.

Little Lameshur is lovely. You need a jeep to get there, but once you are there it's quiet and feels like a special treat. Entry into water is rocky and there were many sea urchins in the snorkeling area so maybe not the best for little kids, but our 12 and 13 year olds had a fine time. This was... More

If you have good clearance, this is a great little beach. Snorkel out along the eastern side of the bay. The snorkeling out near the end of the bay is really great. Take it slow on the road coming in, some of the potholes are quite large. Pay attention to the spare tire on your jeep, you may find little... More
