Beautiful, secluded beach with very good snorkeling. Best place on the island to easily snorkel with lobsters. The beach itself is excellent and close to Caneel Bay where you can saunter over for a cold drink at the bar or for the B'que ribs for lunch which are excellent.

I went to Honeymoon Beach, St John as an all day getaway with Virgin Islands Eco tours. The package included all water sports activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, floats and snorkel equipment and a locker from 9 AM to 4 PM. The package is $49. But you can get 10% off by booking online or using a coupon.... More

This is a very pretty beach, at least I think it would be if you could actually see if for all the people. We went pretty early in the day to beat the biggest of the crowds. Glad we went, but we preferred the less crowded beaches.

This was our first trip to St. John and the Virgin Islands. Out of all the beaches we visited (Trunk, Solomon, Cinnamon, and Salt Pond) it is safe to say this was our favorite. The employees of EcoTours went above and beyond in order to make our time on Honeymoon beach memorable. From those we meet who work in the... More

Easy walk from the parking lot - small, quiet beach except for the intermittent snorkeling expeditions that stopped there- the snorkeling is nice at the far end - nice outcroppings of coral - easy to find a relaxing spot to sit- for us it was the picture perfect beach

Coral is not as healthy as it was a few years ago and the beach is overcrowded with boat tourists. Apparently there are more boats on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so other days might be better.

My favorite beach on the island by far (out of those we visited, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho, Hawksnest). We hiked from town and arrived around 11 AM to a mostly deserted beach, we had rented chairs/kayaks/snorkel gear for the day but we probably only needed the snorkel gear, the rest wasn't worth it. The snorkeling was awesome, I saw turtles, tons... More

This is our second trip to St John and what we do is hike to Salomon Beach first [our favorite beach on St John] and then hike over to Honeymoon Beach right next door. Honeymoon gets crowded with the charter snorkeling boats early afternoon. But as soon as the boats leave, it is a great spot to snorkel. We have... More

Not crowded and absolutely stunning! This is one of the best beaches we visited on the island. You have to walk a little ways to get there, but it's plenty worth it and it seems to keep the crowds away.

We hiked to Honeymoon from Caneel. Reviews said it was a short 5 minute hike - it wasn't. More like 15-20, and in direct sunshine, no shade. And we ran into a herd of donkeys, which had one aggressive one. But once we made it to the beach, all was forgotten. So pretty. I'm glad we decided not to lug... More
