“Great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Perfect water, and nice beach at the Caneel resort. Restaurant, restrooms. There were wild donkeys and deer on the property. Very beautiful place and you can walk to Solomon and Honeymoon beach, which are smaller and more secluded, just a short distance from here.

“Choose your beach and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

While we did not stay at the resort, we used a day pass to explore and enjoy this high end resort. Built by the Rockefeller family, the grounds are beautiful and several beaches can be accessed. A pass will cost you $20 if you wish to park a car or you can enter via taxi. A walking trail will lead you to Honeymoon beach which is around the point. Great restaurants on site as well.

“Small, On Display, Boats”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This is a very thin, short stretch of beach right in front of main hotel area, breakfast buffet and boat launch. I was shocked to see anyone choose this beach when there are 3-4 others very close by that are none of these things.

“Great snorkeling without Trunk Bay crowds !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This was by far the most popular beach at Caneel Bay but it never felt crowded with plenty of room. The water was crystal clear and the snorkeling was absolutely amazing on the far right side of the beach (by the rocks, away from the dock) - plenty of fish and I even saw a big stingray on the sand in about 6 ft. of water. Kayaking and sailing were great as well.

“Great Fun and Relaxation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This is a great beach to relax or keep busy kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and fishing. The great trees allow for shade and a great day of reading, napping and just taking it all in. The snorkeling is average because the reefs are located on the ends of the beach but the other activities are great. Drawback is the walk to the beach. They rent chairs for $3 and they are very accommodating if you need some extra time on that kayak! Lastly, you can order food from the Caneel Resort Restaurant and they will bring it to you. See my other posts on other beaches and restaurants.
