Parking at the better known north shore beaches is a real problem in peak weeks ( we were there Xmas to past New Year's ) but this place never is 'full' given its furthest from Cruz Bay on North Shore but be aware the parking down near beach can involve a walk along a really rutted / muddy dirt road . Drive down to end and drop folks / chairs off and then go back to find a place to park is best way to handle .
Sweet beach ( good amount of sand between ocean and trees unlike other beaches ) and plenty of space . Pretty good snorkeling .
We had planned to go to Waterlemon last week but the big east winds made it very choppy so Francis Bay just down road was a pleasant fallback ( was very protected from easterlies ) .
No facilities there as I recall so that can be an issue .
Funniest thing we saw whole week on St John was the chicken living in woods behind beach who snuck out to grab any loose food we had lying about . I had never seen a chicken on a beach before this
