Cinnamon Bay is another beautiful beach in St.john. The water is crystal clear & the sand is perfect. Not as busy as Trunk Bay which makes it appealing. However the woman you rent snorkels from is completely unfriendly. Cest la vie I guess. Still had fun.

We stayed in one of the beachfront villas #10C. Our room was literally a few steps from the water. This is like having a motel room on the beach for about the same motel room price. People who have not stayed at Cinnamon before should know that these are not luxurious accommodations. It's basically glorified camping. The twin beds are... More

You can't beat the location, right on Cinnamon Bay beach and close to Surrounding beaches. The campground was clean and quiet for the most part. The bathroom & showers were a bit out dated and could use some renovations. Each bare camping site comes with a charcoal grill and some with a wooden table to eat. Ask for a campground... More

This is the 2nd year in a row we have stayed in the cabins on St. John in Cinnamon Bay. We were fortunate to get cabin 7D. What can I say, the cabins are comfortable, have electricity and cabins 7 through 10 have a mini-fridge. For the money you can't beat it. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the... More

We rented the cabin with a water view. It was great. Came fully stocked as far as bedding and kitchen utilizes goes. Comes with a Coleman stove for cooking and a BBQ grill. Also have a mini fridge and cooler. Really all you want is a place to sleep and grab a bite to eat. Where else can you snorkel... More

St. John, the beautiful island of the U.S Virgin Islands and holder of the Virgin Islands National Park, was the location of my family trip in April 2015. There was plenty of nice accommodations around the island, but the campground at Cinnamon Bay was only one we found that was cheap, I came here to St. John with my family... More

I went to Cinnamon Bay with 3 college friends and we stayed in one large tent. It was a little cramped, but we would travel the island immediately upon waking up and would come back late at night. Great value for younger kids, but everyone else that was there were families. Amazing sunrises/sunsets less than 20 seconds from our tent.... More

We are senior campers but enjoyed the cabin. My son and family chose a tent and were disappointed. One must consider that you are supporting the park which apparently receives no federal subsidy. Lovely beach and swimming, perhaps the most spectacular sunset I have ever seen and photographed!
