We were staying at Caneel and were walking around checking out all of their beaches. This one is open to the public and is also where you'll come if you book an eco-tour. There is a nice hut on the beach that sells souvenirs and beach stuff. The beach itself seemed rather small to us, but we are picky about... More

Amazingly pretty beach -- can walk in from Caneel Bay or park near the entrance to the park. Snorkeling off the west side of the beach is spectacular -- manta rays, multiple fish species and multiple coral types. Best snorkeling of the week -- only missing sea turtles which can be seen at Leicester Bay and Waterlemon Cay.

It's the perfect white sandy beach to lay on or snorkel in. The view is breathtaking. The waves aren't big so I can even swim in the water. We saw many different kinds of fish as well as coral while snorkeling. The hike we took to get there is worth it. I believe you can only get to this beach... More

After visiting Salomon (first stop) and Honeymoon (second stop) back-to-back, I recommend visiting Honeymoon instead of Salomon. Reasons: + Honeymoon is a slightly shorter hike + Honeymoon has better snorkeling (i.e. coral and fish) + Honeymoon has a longer beach As much as my wife and I enjoyed Honeymoon Beach, we will not return for a second visit. Why?: —... More

Even though you must go on a trek, the beach is so worth it! The waters are clear and beach not so crowded. I would recommend tennis shoes. Very peaceful and clean beach!

We stopped here as part of a snorkel your and it was a beautiful beach to relax and soak up some sunshine after a busy morning. The sand is soft and white & the water a clear Aqua blue.
