I believe this is part of the Caneel Resort Complex......."others" can use it if they can get to it by trail or water....we got there by kayak with our guide and were delighted to find the turtles waiting for us. We also had a few stingrays, and several conchs and a "conch nursery". This was a bit of a different... More

Quiet, just what we were looking for in a beach. Caneel Bay gently suggests that people with children under 12 years old (or something like that) not use this beach and it certainly was nice and quiet.

My family went snorkeling for the afternoon and were able to see a wealth of wildlife including a dolphin. Great fish, coral beds and other sea life.

This beach is generally considered the best on the resort. The surf is gentle, and the wind is sufficient to keep you comfortable all day long. There is plenty of shade and lounge chairs to go around.

This is normally an adults only beach, but since it was Easter week it was open to all. It was the prettiest and my favorite. They also have food and beverage service. Don't wait to get to hungry, it takes a while to bring the food.

This is a great beach with super clear water and some snorkeling also. You can relax all day here! There isn't any access to the water sports equipment and I don't think the beach waiters come by as often as they do at the main beach by the restaurants, but they do come.

If you have the chance to stay at Caneel Bay and are traveling without children, this is probably going to be your favorite beach while there. We only had 2 days to enjoy it and we absolutely loved this beach. It was quiet and never seemed to be extremely full or busy with a large amount of other people. Getting... More

Scott Beach is the most beautiful beach at Caneel Bay Resort. You can certainly beach hop on ST John, but all things considered you won't find a nicer one. Beach bar is a plus!
