You can not stay on any beaches in STJ unless you are

1. camping at Cinnamon Bay

2. Staying at Caneel Bay or the Westin

3. Renting one of the VERY few beaches that have villas on them

The majority of the beaches on STJ are within the National Park boundries so the beaches are just beach. No hotels or condos or restaurants or bars.

In comparison to many other islands, the beaches are not long walking beaches either. I think that Cinnamon and Trunk may be the longest beaches.

I had the same question this year (my first trip). I traded the beach location dream and went for the view...realized that I would be at the beach all day(so the beach view) and stayed on

a hillside villa with awesome panoramic views. More snorkeling than walking...no worries, I walk at home. Enjoy, and I'm sure you will!
