No overcrowding. This is a semi-private charter departing only from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Restaurant. A maximum of 12 guests will enjoy a 4 hr sail, snorkel and beach adventure to St John. <br><br>At one of the many snorkel spots around St John (Trunk or Maho Bay) or nearby Cays (Lovango) you will have snorkeling gear to explore coral reefs that are home to an abundance of tropical fish and other sea life including swimming with turtles. Once the group is finished snorkeling, enjoy complimentary soda, beer and rum punch. <br><br>After snorkeling, we will sail you away to either Hawksnest Bay or Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay (weather dependent). Perhaps the prettiest beaches in the Virgin Islands, you will enjoy the white sand beach and crystal blue waters. You can visit Bikini's Beach Cafe where Pain Killers flow freely. Your experience is complete with a quick trip back to Margaritaville. <br><br>Guests will enjoy our Voyage 500 luxury sailing yacht. Departure time is 9 am or 2 pm.

Beautiful beach. I was worried about getting a shady spot but we easily found one. Parking was tight when we left around 1:00. No facilities but also no crowds. Only negatives were a rocky entry to the water, and a slightly buoyant surf. May not be the best choice for small

if you are looking to avoid a lot of the crowds but don't want to drive all the way to the east end this is your best bet. Bring bug spray though!

Francis is my favorite beach on St. John. Generally, Francis is not crowded. It is a very large beach, with no need to cram the beach goers close together. The snorkeling is great wherever you go from the beach. Also, the shade is beginning to return. As compared to other
