Owner description: You need a four-wheel-drive vehicle to get here, but it's well worth the trip to this scenic and secluded beach, perfect for swimming, and a barrier reef for snorkeling.

This beach and outlying reef that surrounds it provides a mecca for tropical fish and coral. Absolutely worth the walk on the trail to get to.

The hike is fine, and includes some gorgeous views. We spent about three hours on the beach, most of that time having it to ourselves. Beach is mix of rocks and sand. Some nice waves to play in at the sandy parts. Snorkeling was quite good and allowed us some of the best underwater photos all week. All in all, everything our family of four (with 15 and 10 yr old kids) was looking for on a lazy afternoon. We took our time on the return hike, and hung out on the ledge between Isaac and East end beaches.

This Nature Conservancy site is lovely - right at the foot of Point Udall, the easternmost point of land in the U.S. Nice path is very walkable, but no shade and quite a hike back up to the parking, so bring twice the amount of water you think you may need.

over 8 days visited beaches in St Thomas, St John, BVI , and St Croix. Isaac was the best. Pristine. White sand and best of all no one there. Never more than 6, including my wife and I, on our side and 2 more on other side of rock promentary. better than average snorkeling off shore. Reef extends all along beach. No shade but we brought light weight lean to. No facilities so need to bring water, snacks. 1/2 mile hike from right below Pt Udall. Jack's Bay is right next door but we didnt have time to hike to that. If you like privacy, snorkeling then this is for you. Must have car.You know its a good beach if when you tell locals where you went they are impressed you knew about it. On way back stop at Cheesburgers in Paradise for a well deserved fresh burger and beer!

First of all, the hike to Jack and Issac's is not the easiest hike. Anyone who is in decent shape will be fine, but be ready to hike up and down large hills on a narrow path.
The views are very nice along the way, and great photo ops are plentiful. However, the waters are either rough, or rocky and filled with seaweed. Don't be mislead. This is more of a scenic hike than anything else.
Park at the small turnoff right before Point Udall and hike down the path... The area is safely located on the far East End.
