This beach is very windy. The water tends to be a little choppy compared to other beaches. There are many seagulls and birds that swoop down and take your food right out of your hands! Snorkeling was good, but not great. We saw several sting...More

One of my favorite beaches. Due to last years huricaines it doesn't have the lush trees that were there but still an awesome place to hang out. No amenities as of right now.

While the area surrounding the beach still shows destruction from Hurricane Irma, the water was crystal clear and warm. Walking along the waters edge watching the waves roll in was post card picture perfect. Clean area and people on the beach were very friendly.

The beach, water and sand are perfect. However the destruction from Hurricane Irma was terrible. Everything, including sturdy buildings, sleeping shelters and stone structures, and lots of trees was destroyed and nothing has been repaired. No repairs were even underway. Your best bet right now...More

This place is pretty destroyed. The water is still really pretty. The sand soft. And there’s coral trying to come back to life. There’s areas you can find shade under trees. You can see all the rich people’s houses from this beach.

We did some hiking above Cinnamon Bay and the views were incredible: beaches and water in the distance, forests, ruins... Then we came down and had a large portion of the beach to ourselves. It was stunning and isolated and it was our favourite -...More

We were vacationing there last spring and summer. We met some friends and it is a real struggle for them because they survive and count on the tourism. We love that place and hope to be back soon!,
