We took the trailhead from Cruz Bay to get to Honeymoon beach. Our hotel concierge told us it was 20 minutes and doable in flip flops. It was more like 35 minutes at a comfortable pace and we were glad that we had sneakers on. Once at the beach, the Eco tours booth had great rental options. We spent $20... More

We did the all inclusive deal with VI Eco Tours and did some SUP and laid in our chairs all day. Austin appeared right when we arrived, set up our chairs and drug over the SUP, lifejackets and floating mats for us. I enjoyed this beach more than I thought I would. There were 4 catamaran's packed with snorkelers that... More

You have to take a easy grade trail to reach this beach. The trail starts just past the Park rangers station downtown. This is also known as the island top less beach at times. The water is perfict and very few if any people will be there. So nice.

The hike to this beach was well worth it! I cannot wait to come back! Of all of the beaches we visited on St. Thomas & St. John Islands, this is by far my absolute favorite. What can I say, finding this beach on our honeymoon definitely made an impression. Compared to other beaches, this was the least crowded of... More

the water at honeymoon is very pretty.. the snorkeling here was just average for us.(on the day we went.). its nice b/c it has restroom, and snack shack. it is open (with charge) to public, so it is a bit more crowded. (but not bad in summer)

There is no charge to go to this beach as someone mentioned in an earlier post. Not crowded and tons of beautiful fish!

Although we were paying guests at Caneel, you can't set foot on Honeymoon beach without paying for access, a chair, food, sand...very disappointing

Crowded and littered with sporting equipment (kayaks etc.), but beautiful sand and water. Many wild donkeys rest in the shade, where there are also mosquitoes.

This is one of the beaches on the Caneel Bay Resort which is private, but available to the public if you can get there by boat or trail. We got there by going in the main entrance...being read the $20 parking fee stipulation, but were there for the VI Eco tour to Henley by kayak. Their little start up point... More

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.
