“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

If you want to swim and have fun with turtles, this the place. We have seen several turtles which they are not afraid of people.
As taxis do not arrive to this beach the number of tourists is very limited. Overall it is a place to do not miss.

“UNBELIVABLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Probably one of the top 2 beaches in St. John. Very little tourists, long white sanded beach with incredibly crystal clear waters. Snorkelers' heaven as you swim with plenty of turtles all day long. Fortunately there are no beach bars so you can truly enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere. KEEP IT THE WAY IT IS AND BE GENTLE WITH THE TURTLES.

This is a great quiet beach/cove for novice snorkelers. We saw lots of turtles. It's great with kids. Highly recommend.
