This beach was only a short walk from our room. We visited it more frequently not only for its beauty but also for the on-site beach bar!

The absolute best beach on the resort - wide open, beautiful trees, very relaxed setting, calm and clear water, and a small/quiet beach bar to get your painkiller fix.

This is our most favorite beach on the Caneel Bay Resort. No children under 12 are allowed and we thoroughly enjoy this when we are traveling without our family.

Great beach, and good snorkeling. The water was clear and beautiful, and the beach wasn't crowded at all. We saw sea turtles and sting rays at this beach.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever experienced. We stayed in the second room from the east side and were able to snorkel and enjoy Scott beach more than any other beach on St. John.
