Great for Day Cruise

Beautiful for snorkeling! We took a day cruise and had a blast. The water was calm and the garden under the water was beautiful

This is a beautiful beach. Water is crystal clear and the scenery is amazing! For those traveling to St John this destination is a must.

This was the last beach we visited on our trip. You can only get to the next by boat or trail. We parked at the National Park station (not the visitors centre) just before you drive down into Cruz bay on North shore. We took the Caneel Hill spur trail from there down to the Upper Lind trail and down... More

A great beach on St John with great beaches and shade areas. Snorkeling is good - especially towards the private residence on the left. Snorkeling excursions come and go, but they typically do not beach. A fun hike down from the national park sign. Make sure you have water for the hike back up!

This is a great afternoon beach. Most people leave by mid afternoon and it is easy to fond a quiet spot. The snorkeling is superb. We saw many fish, corals, sting rays, and a hawksbill turtle on our last trip.

Honeymoon Beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. The hike from the park visitor center was a little over a mile, and not too strenuous. It was really hot and dry, so make sure you bring water. The beach itself is amazing! Crystal clear waters and coral reefs, so make sure you bring... More

I love, love this beach. Possibly my favorite I've ever been to. Downside is the walk there (going there is fine, leaving in the afternoon in the heat is stinky). There use to be a cart that came from Caneel with drinks and you could order food, but now it's a little stand with wraps, PB&J (they ran out of)... More

We visited a few times with the teens this summer and really liked the experience - the beach is pristine - great for swimming, snorkeling or just taking in the amazing views. It's definitely one of our favorite beaches so long as the snorkel tour boats haven't offloaded armies of snorkelers or the beachcombers have gone elsewhere - it's too... More

We had a great day at Honeymoon!! The walk can sound daunting depending upon some of the reviews, but it was nothing at all! We did the bundle that included kayaks, paddle boards etc. Search to see if you can find a promo code. We used the SUMMER code which I believe is good through November for 50% off. The... More

You can take a short 20 min hike from the road to this stunning beach. There is some snorkeling but it is mostly sand. The hike down is steep but there is a path. wear sneakers, not flip flops. The hike back is steep but totally doable. The fun thing about this beach is there are donkeys just laying around... More
