A popular beach

A great beach, but crowded. Wait Johns is full of great beaches. The others are not crowded, so unless you really like people watching why come here?

This has been our favorite beach for some time. Quiet less crowded with hammocks, great snorkeling and beautiful sand. However this year they have brought in dozens of kayaks, paddle boards, floating circular rafts, tubes, kite sails and about anything imaginable for the water. I thought I was on Hampton Beach in NH or on a beach on the Jersey... More

Best beach we visited on St John. Excellent views, white sand and calm waters. Best snorkeling of the 5 beaches we visited. Can hike in for free or park at Caneel Bay for $20 but if you spend $20 on drinks or food at the snack shop you don't have to pay the $20.

Able to rent chairs, floats, etc. We snorkeled and it was beautiful. The water was crystal clear. The staff was friendly and helpful. You go to Caneel Bay, get a ticket for $20- if you spend $20 while there, your parking entrance ticket is voided when you leave. It was very relaxing and peaceful. A bit of a walk (5minutes-somewhat... More

This beach is in a small island and it is awesome!!! They have great food and I loved it! This was part of an excursion which was the best of all trip! There are a few rocks in the water so I highly recommend water shoes.

We arrived here from the Cruz Bay ferry dock in maybe 5 minutes or so by open air taxi ($5 each way) The Caneel Resort grounds are just stunning! The beach there is gorgeous too. We were greeted to the resort and followed the clearly marked signs to the beach. My mom has some breathing problems and was ok with... More

Amazing water is everywhere but if you hike to this from Mongoose you will feel like you have found Paradise when you reach the beach. It has incredible trees hanging near so you can hang shirts or gear or seek a little shade. Its quiet and peaceful and it is one of my favorite places

All of the beaches on St. John are beautiful, this one is a great way to spend the day. be prepared for a walk on a dirt road, but once you get there, everything that you need is right there. The $20 to park was easily covered by puchasing food from the staff that walks the beach. Take your $20... More

Turtles, stingrays, and a Barracuda were the highlight of our diving adventure! Highly reccomend this to anybody that is a good swimmer and enjoys the water and wildlife!
