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!

Loved the kayak trip over to Scott Beach on the Caneel Bay property. Amazing snorkeling and privacy. Con: have to either stay at Caneel Bay $$$$$ or just do a half day snorkel & kayak tour.

This beach was absolutely amazing! Sea turtles and sting rays are visible while snorkeling. Advice: Book a room on Scott's Beach. Beware of the staff working the drinks station.

Stayed at Caneel bay on Scott beach. Great beach with lots to see, stingrays, turtles, donkeys, mongoose, and iguanas. Snorkeling available but it is only fair. Nice sunset. Was a bit more busy that we had heard, but not crowded at all. Nice and quiet with great service on the beach. Look for Mugsy, he will take great care of... More

Scott Beach is a wide white sand beach, about 15-20 meters in depth with a calm surf. There is shade from palm trees toward the back of the beach and very good snorkeling at the extreme right and left of the beach among the rocks and coral. There is a bar that provides drinks and lunch. This is a wonderful... More
