This was our favorite beach at Caneel Bay. Some of the prettiest water I've seen! The chairs are the old school sling back type and there isn't any type of real beach service, but there is a bar if you feel like walking up to order your own drinks/lunch. Great floats and the water is so calm you can really... More

One of the most amazing beaches you will ever swim at if you can get to it. It is one of the seven beaches at the Caneel Bay resort. You can get to it by boat or you need to chalk up a boatload of cash to get a room at this resort that caters to the rich.

This beach is uncrowded, shady and peaceful. We snorkeled from the shore and saw sea turtles and conch.

Sand like sugar and facing west toward St. Thomas - perfect for sunsets and snorkeling or hanging out under the shade trees. Great service on the beach.

Our room was right on the beach. The scenery was beautiful and we could snorkel right there. The resort provided chairs, snorkel equipment and floats that we kept for the length of our stay.

It is worth caneel bay rates to spend time on this beach. I always see sea turtles and my husband and I have had some of the best days in my life on this beach.

If you aren't into snorkeling this is still a wonderful beach to relax and enjoy all the wild life. Nice chairs and shade if you want it. The beach bar also will serve lunch.
