This beach has it all. Not too big, but has all the rental equipment onsite for paddle boards, canoes, snorkel gear, floaties and beach loungers. The snorkeling was exceeded expectations as there are some cool reefs at the far end of the beach from where you access it.

This is a highly recommended spot to just chill out and listen to the waves and watch the barricudas to arrive early or late evening. It is a nice sunset and nice to snorkle out between the beach to Caneel Resort. There are also carribean lobster in the coral reef and many fish.

Amazing Views at Honeymoon Beach and there is soft white sands. However the sand and surf pick up and become hard to swim through due to the high wind gusts! Whenever you see a beach that offer windsurfing, you can be assured that the wind will make the surf difficult to swim.

Pay your $20 to get into the parking at Caneel Bay (on which this beach lies), but if you spend $20 or more (like on gelato or other food or non-food goodies, the parking is free - you don't pay until leaving, but a food/gift receipt will be the substitute). Now, about the bay - good place for those who... More

It's hard to describe how beautiful this is. I would rate it as one of the best beaches we visited, plus it was not too crowded (could've been the time of year I don't know). It was perfect for us as we were on our honeymoon!

All of the beaches in St John are amazing but this is one of my favorites. You must park at Caneel for $20 but on the way out have drinks at the beach bar and they will validate your parking ticket. There are many water sports. For $49 per day you can get a chair and unlimited use of floats,... More

Beautiful beach with all the amenities; located near Caneel Bay Resort. You can walk/hike to this location or park at the resort and walk. Great place to snorkel!

Honeymoon beach is off the beaten path as you need to walk 1/2 mile from the Caneel Bay resort gate [if you drive there is a $20 parking fee]. Chances of you passing donkeys along the road are great so bring your cameras. Caneel added in the last few years a stand that offers food, souvenirs, chairs, kayaks and lots... More

We had a great time at Honeymoon Beach. We hiked in through the national park and enjoyed a fabulous day. We did the all in rental for the day which included beach chair, paddle board, kayak and snorkels. The water is beautiful and the sand fantastic. Our family had a great time!
