We enjoyed all the beaches at Caneel Bay Resort but Scott Beach was our favorite. Plenty of chairs, no other traffic but other beachgoers. The width of the smooth sandy section and gradual dropoff made for great swimming. The snorkeling is especially good on the north end. I was a beginner and most of the bay is well shielded from the prevailing wind and current. I had no trouble getting to see things while avoiding challenging swim situations. Terrific shallow water ledge with wide variety of fauna: Saw triggerfish, several species and stages of parrotfish, a moray eel!, squid, needlefish, yellow jack, blue tang, damselfish, and more. Over the sand in the middle I saw a good number of rays. The young guys manning the bar were helpful and lively. It was a short walk over just one easy hill from our unit on Cottage point. The sand was fine and white.
