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

We took the ferry to St. John's for the day and spent the first part of the day at Honeymoon beach. This beach took a hike to get to, but was well worth it! It was pure paradise! The sand is silky soft, and the water is so clear and blue. There are hammocks and chairs for the public, and... More

Can't beat the name! Definitely a great beach to tan or be active. Good snorkeling to the far left and you can even swim over to Salomon beach. Can be busy at times. VI Ecotours has all your rental needs. Visit Honeymoon beach and Salomon in the same day.

Honeymoon is a beautiful beach which can be accessed by a hike either from the Caneel Resort ($20 parking fee waived if you spend $20 at resort) or from the NPS Visitor Center in Cruz Bay. There is no cost to access the beach and the entire beach is open to all visitors. Good snorkeling off the point between Honeymoon... More

We parked at Caneel to access Honeymoon Beach and found it to be well worth spending $20 at the resort. (We enjoyed happy hour drinks and an appetizer after a day at the beach.) Honeymoon Beach was our favorite during the two weeks of beach bumming on St. John. The water was crystal clear and the snorkeling was great.

Having already been at the other beaches on the resort, this one seemed terribly lame. Not well groomed, had to pay for any kind of beach amenity, crowded.

There is a bit of a hike to get to Honeymoon Beach but don't miss this beautiful white sand beach. If you snorkle you will easily find sea turtles and sting rays over the areas of sea grass. We spent hours snorkeling wit these beautiful sea creatures. You access the trail leading to Honeymoon Beach just behind the Cruz Bay... More

There are a lot of activities to do once you get to Honeymoon Beach, but the beach itself isn't great. You can either hike there from Cruz Bay or take a taxi to Caneel Bay resort and walk down. Wear good shoes for the hike as it is rocky. There are wild donkeys that come to the beach regularly and... More

Timing is essential here because of the chartered boats that stop off shore and dump a mass of finned humanity into the water. We got there by 8:30 and had the beach to ourselves for a while. Snorkeled for 2 hours. Loved the reef with beautiful coral and diverse fish. Saw an eel and turtles (grassy area to right of... More
