All in a sudden you see this wonderful beach with chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards, rafts....all of which you can rent and not have to lug! Call in advance and they will reserve anything you want.

Number 1 or 2 on my list. Just beautiful. Not as crowded as Trunk bay. You have to hike a little but well worth it.

This is the one beach that cemented our love for St. John. Access from land is just a short hike from Caneel, or a more vigorous hike in from Cruz Bay.....either way you go you will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands.

We took a ferry from St. Thomas to Water Island and Honeymoon Beach. It was $20 round trip for the two of us. We were in St. Thomas for our honeymoon so it was perfect. The Ferry driver Chris was great. Quiet, but very good at what he does. We went on a Monday afternoon and only stayed a couple... More

I've been here twice as part of a cruise excursion. It is such a fun little area. We came and left by boat so we had to swim to shore, but it was worth it!!

To use the beaches at Caneel, you'll have to spend $20 at the resort--good news--there is a gelato stand on the way to the beach. Honeymoon beach is a 10-15 minute walk from the parking lot. It isn't flat so be prepared for a moderate effort to get there--you may want to pack lightly. The beach is beautiful--great snorkeling on... More

We had the best day at the beach with toddlers. Kids were able to run around, play in the surf and with vests on could freely float, play and snorkel in the water. Crystal clear water! The bar is perfect for lunch or snacks for the kids and great drinks for the adults. We took a small boat from St.... More

We took a ferry ride from St. Thomas to St. John to get here. About a mile hike through a shaded trail to get there. The water is crystal clear and you can get some good snorkeling and a great place to take pictures.

We went to Honeymoon beach in August, and it wasn't crowded at all. it's a small little hike after you get to Caneel Bay. To get the most use for your money, go earlier in the day because they close at 4 and we didn't have time to rent anything other then snorkel equipment and a beach chair. Wish we... More
