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

You should definitely visit Cinnamon Bay if you’re going to St. John. In my opinion, this is even prettier than Trunk Bay. It’s incredibly peaceful, and there is a great view not just looking out into the ocean but looking back from it as well!...More

This beach has some coarse and powder sand. Easy smooth walk into the water. Didn't see a lot of fish. The entrance to Cinnamon has had a lot of damage to the camping sites. Beach is nice.

Really destroyed and hasn’t been cleaned up. Guessed there’s a feud about who is to pick it up. Private leaser or national park. Maybe go to Trunk or Hawksnest for now.

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!,
