AMAZING!

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.

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.

This is a fantastic beach with beautiful snorkeling and sunset views. Never crowded, grown ups only, and a lovely Beach Bar at the end make this a one stop shop when staying at Caneel Bay Resort.

This beach is a beautiful, long, wide and quiet beach. Good snorkeling at both ends of the beach! Great place to while away a day - some shade trees, if you need a respite from the sun!

I said to my wife..."we do not need to leave Caneel Bay...we will not find a nicer beach on the planet, much less on St. John".

Scott Beach is incredibly private and relaxing, but in addition to those qualities, also has lovely snorkeling.

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.

There is no better beach in this part of the world. You can stumble out of your room in the morning and fall into the water. It is a perfect place to watch the grand children snorkel.

This is a long beach with plenty of room for people to spread out. Good snorkeling on the right-hand side.
