I have been to Honeymoon Beach several times and I recently visited last week. You will never be disappointed going here. The water is crystal clear and it is absolutely beautiful. We were on a cruise which docked in St. Thomas. We took a taxi ($10-one way) from the Pier to Red Hook where we caught the 9am ferry ($14r/t).... More

My family took a catamaran out from St. Thomas. It was a great ride over. Once we got to the beach, we snorkeled to the beach. Snorkeling was a lot of fun and it was great to see sea turtles, corals, and fish in clear water. The beach was also great for swimming or just relaxing. I could have spent... More

This little stretch of beach is technically part of Caneel Bay Resort but is open to the public and the concessionaire is sub-contracted. The price each to use the watersports equipment, floats, and lounge chairs is reasonable if you are spending the whole day. We were staying at Caneel Bay and booked an Ecotour of Kayaking, Hiking and Snorkeling through... More

If you are looking for some activity at the beach, then head to Honeymoon. They have ecotour there that offers kayaks and paddle boarding. We snorkeled by this beach coming from Salomon beach and we headed to Caneel Bay. Another paradise in St. John. I believe you get there using the same trail to access Salomon Beach (Lind Point)

Honeymoon beach was the second beach we visited at St. John. There's a 15 minute downhill walk down a rocky path to the beach (not bad at all, my two kids didn't complain a bit). The beach has no services (i.e., restroom or snacks) but we brought a backpack and hung our towels and clothes on the convenient tree branches,... More

Wonderful snorkeling...lovely beach with out many people and with shade trees along the sand. Almost a mile walk from Caneel Bay resort where you must pay $20 to park. However if you sopend $20 or more in the gift shop or restaurants the parking is free.

Loved this beach. We had the all inclusive pass so we could use all of their equipment (Snorkeling gear, kayaks, paddle boards, etc.). The water was clear blue and didn't have huge waves so it wasn't overwhelming. It was perfect for snorkeling. We got to see beautiful fish, coral and even a sting ray! Overall I definitely recommend this beach!

This beach was already busy with families when three different snorkel tour catamarans arrived at 10 am and dropped an additional 60+ swimmers into the water. The water sports booth and shop are really pretty tacky and are in complete contrast with the beauty of the island. Because this beach is small compared to Cinnamon Bay, the water sports area...

My husband and I decided to go to this beach because of the package from ecotour in which you can you use all their water sport equipment all day. I have 2 kids and they had a blast, the water was beautiful and the snorkeling was amazing, we got to see several sting rays, corals and all kids of different... More

It was beautiful with lots of beautiful trees and not huge crowds. It's July and the snorkeling was awesome saw turtles and stingrays. Kids kayaked well surprisingly. Great place and super quiet.
