“Ferry ride from STT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We spent a day on Honeymoon beach and there were only a dozen or so others there. Relaxing! A cheap and quick trip from STT and a quiet day. There is a small bar on the beach but we took drinks and snacks with us.

“A great place for a family vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a quiet, relaxing, safe place for families to spend a vacation. It reminded me of a "northwoods cabin" vacation, but in a tropical setting. The sea instead of a lake, a palm trees instead of pines, tortoises & iguanas instead of squirrels & raccoons. We enjoyed hiking, snorkeling, and of course sitting on the beaches.

“A different pace of St. Thomas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Boat or Ferry Ride required. Rent a golf cart ahead of time for use while there. You will need it to access all sights!
