Nice picturesque beach but the effects of the hurricanes are still painfully evident. The adjoining campground, restaurant, museum and facilities are all destroyed. The water was nice although the snorkeling was not as good as in the past due to damage from the storms. Not...More

Much like other North shore beaches, this bay is a bit crowded due to the easy access, the availability of taxis coming this far from Cruz Bay, and the beautiful sand. Bring a paddle board and a tower, and relax

Not far from Trunk Bay, this beach is way less crowded. The family took a picnic lunch and enjoyed a day of snorkeling and “sandman” building.

The former campground buildings were destroyed by the hurricane. As of now, there are no facilities. But the beach is beautiful, the reef is coming back, and the snorkeling is great. Bring your own food and drink.
