Snorkel around the cay for dramatic seascapes and interesting marine life. We saw a gorgeous pair of gray angelfish and my first ever pair of queen angelfish, which were so brilliantly colored that they looked fake!

This is a quiet beach. Still torn up from hurricanes. Beach is okay but no snacks or rentals. Portapotties only. Recommend Trunk Bay over this one.

This remains a beautiful slice of St. John to visit. You can imagine the building structures, what it took to build them, what it took to destroy them and what it will take to rebuild. The water is beautiful. The hiking above Cinnamon Bay offers...More

Loved the beach and Donkeys. Great place to spend the day. Do know that the bath house and other structures are not open. However, keeps the crowd down. We had one end of beach to ourselves.

One of the bigger but less busy beaches. No tiki bar or food truck service. Make sure you pack everything you need. Views are spectacular, white powdery beaches. Was a little choppy the day we were there, but it’s usually very calm.
