“Potentially lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We parked at the top of the hill and walked down, feeling we had earned our snorkel at the bottom of the hill at the beach. There was no one there. Aah, paradise. We put on our gear, got in the water, saw one fish and then several hired sailing vessels showed up and disgourged about 50 people onto the beach with their floaties and their water toys and their noise. We tried to enjoy our snorkeling but peace had been stolen away from us. We began the long climb back up the hill. By the way, despite the fact that I am complaining, the hike was fun and the snorkeling is good.

“Visit Solomon Beach instead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

While this is a beautiful beach, it was a bit to crowded for my liking, there hammocks were barely above the ground (so when you sit in them, you ram your rear into the ground) and there were some large trucks passing by the little road that's practically on the beach. It's relatively small but was way too loud, so instead I would highly recommend walking another 0.2 miles and spending your day at Solomon Beach, which was one of my favorites on the entire island.

“Everyone should be this lucky...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The water is a clear and beautiful blue. Soft sand. Sit on the shore and soak in the beauty of the neighboring islands. My eyeballs were smiling because of the utter beauty!

“We love this spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Have a nice lunch at Caneel Bay resort and walk on over to Honeymoon Bay for a nice swim in this beautiful bay. You might just see some donkeys on the way.
