So many things I loved about Little Lameshur Bay. The road to get there was a riot! It was so fun being able to fully utilize the 4x4, but watch out for whiplash. It had been raining on the island, so the mud was plentiful! It was honestly a blast. We drove a ways and finally reached the Little Lameshur... More

What makes this beach so secluded is that the road getting there is horrible. To save money we rented a Toyota Yaris. Dumb descision!!! But we made it very, very slowly but surely. We even saw parts of a jeep laying on the side of the road. Aside from the awful road, this is a great spot. We even went... More

We found this bay on St. John's East side by mistake but I'm glad we did. When we first arrived, it was busy with campers from the neighboring camp, VIERS. However, they soon left for the day and we had it all to ourselves. It is a sandy beach featuring beautiful water, picnic tables, shade trees, easy walk to beach,... More

Little Lameshur is a ways off the beaten path. And you're thinking Whats the big deal? The big deal is that we're the brilliant people who rent a Ford Fiesta in St. John! If we had been in a Jeep, this dirt road full of pot holes might have been enjoyable. All that aside, the day we visited Lameshur the... More

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
