This is the top beach of the Caneel Bay resort. It looks like a paradise, protected from winds and ocean streams it offers crystal waters and romantic sunsets.

One of the most beautiful and peaceful spots on earth! Turquoise water, white soft sand, beach chairs and floats with a full service beach bar makes for the most relaxing vacation spot on lush, green St. John...
