This area of St John is well off the beaten path and is east of Coral Bay. It got its name because the collection of bays here are the most protected and when there are hurricanes this is where the boats anchor to stay protected....More

Great snorkeling (best on St. John, in my opinion) when conditions are good, on outer Hurricane Hole; short walk to pebble beach with somewhat difficult access, no shade. Fine snorkeling on inner Hurricane Hole, with somewhat easier access, no walk, and some shade.

We were somewhat disappointed in this snorkel spot after reading the reviews. In order to see anything you had to get right up next to the roots of the mangroves in barely two feet of water with long sea grass below. There were not many...More

I got here by a chartered boat and really enjoyed it. The mangroves make for great snorkeling. If you get a boat try to get to some of the smaller nearby bays that are harder to get to by land.
