My husband and I snorkeled both the North and South Haulover spots. The North is a very difficult entry due to the rocks. We saw limited fish there. The South part was much better for snorkeling. There are rocks and small to medium size coral formations and plenty of fish. It wasn't crowded.

Beach never crowded, short walk to N.Haulover, both excellent. Deeper trench(25feet) in center of bay is lionfish hotspot. Please call lionfish hotline if you see one. Problem: Many are bringing toxic coral killing sunscreens that are Banned by law by the VI government. People Think they have reef safe screens, (because that's what it said on Amazon, Target, Walmart etc), but these companies are selling screens that are illegal here because they are proven coral killers. Banned chemicals are: 1) oxybenzone 2) octocrylene (avobenzone screens all have this) 3) octinoxate Please read active ingredients and do not bring these here.

The East end is worth the drive. Haulover North has limited parking, so it is never too crowed. Take the path thru rhe woods and you emerge near the center of the beach. After getting in the water go to the left (West). Lots of varied corals and fish. When it"s windy or the surf is up, skip it. But when it's calm there is no better snorkel spot on St John.

We had a very wonderful day snorkeling on the North Haulover beach. It is a short, pleasant stroll from the road to the beach. The beach is quite rocky (very little sand). There are some lovely logs to sit on. Facing the water (with the road behind you), the best snorkeling is to the left. Lots of varied coral and fish. We spent hours snorkeling, absolutely delighted. By 2 pm, we were the only people on the beach! Great views of Tortola too. This is a very special place.

We were referred to the Haulover by Claire at Skinny Legs and we are so glad we were! The water is clear and the rocky shore line is a wide gradual descent so the sea bed seems really close. The rocks are hard on bare feet, but my Keene’s worked perfectly.
