My husband and our adult daughter visited Cinnamon Bay on 1/4/17. We took the ferry to Cruz Bay and about a 15 minute cab ride to the Park. It was $6 per person each way. They have some parking and we heard some visitors they came from Trunk Bay because parking was full. Also, there are no fees to enter... More

Great beach, slightly more secluded and some shade options. We almost had a heart attack because an at least 6 ft nurse shark touched my husbands leg when he was about 5 ft out from shore. It didn't bother us, it just kept on swimming. We went during off season- it looked like they may have facilities at this beach,... More

Very quiet and relaxing beach. Snorkeling was pretty good. Parking easy and access easy from road. Not overly crowded so that was nice.

This beach is amazing it is busy but the beach is so big it doesn't matter. This beach has the best surf we saw on any island and the snorkeling was cool we saw huge fish and a friendly nurse shark. It is very pretty and is great for just hanging out. In the end this is a must see.

Very narrow beach. $7 pp via Taxi bus from Ferry dock at Cruz Bay. Great gift shop, a little on the pricey side but got to remember its a National Park where everything is shipped in. At the end of the path is a very narrow beach. Turn right at the old historical great house for a larger beach. Take... More

Gorgeous beach away from the crowds at Trunk. Local on-site water sports store with super helpful and friendly people. Restrooms showers and lots of hiking options . Bring your food and beverages in. You'll love it!

What I love about Cinnamon is it's just as beautiful as Trunk only no admission fee! Its FREE!!! Love it, the water is bright turquoise, the sand is white, and some of my... More

Beautiful turquoise waters and long, white sandy beach. There is vegetation, not just palms, but also sea grapes and other trees eight next to the beach. There is also a little island close to the shore, which makes the view more interesting. There are facilities, including showers, but no life guard.

I've been to a lot of beaches all around the world including Bora Bora and this was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! The water is so clear and the sand is so soft! There are zero rocks in the water and you don't even need to bring water shoes with you! Would definitely recommend spending at... More

This is a beautiful beach. Can get crowded but there is a bunch of space to move around. The snorkeling here is ok also, but this really just a place to enjoy the white sand and the clear blue water. You can also rent some fun stuff here. Skim boards, SUP, Snorkeling gear etc. They have it all.
