Scott Beach is a long crescent sand beach with fantastic snorkling. It's very quiet and has amazing sunsets. Stay in a Premium Beach Front room on Scott Beach and you won't ever want to leave.

Plenty of shade and turtles. The reef along the far end towards Turtle Bay has multitudes of fish. The sea grass in the middle is home to turtles and sting rays. This is an adult only beach.

Seagrape trees line the beach for shade. Calm turquoise waters and excellent snorkeling. Turtles, rays, abundance of fish and coral.

Wonderful water. Clear as far as you want to see. Beach is long and luxuriously empty most of the time. At least in the summer it was

Fantastic, private, adults only beach. So peaceful and beautiful. I love being able to relax, read, and enjoy the clear, calm water with very few people. Nice beach bar with great drinks and they deliver food including the best sushi. Million dollar views.

What more need be said? Azure waters, great snorkeling, even a beach bar for lazing away those afternoon hours. Powdery sand, floating lounges and awesome sunsets make for a powerful impetus to return to Caneel!

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
