Lots of the underwater world exists right here in Leinster Bay, sea turtles, lots of tropical fish, coral. We snorkeled off to the right of the beach on an overcast day and it was great!

Bay is very pretty but was absolutely packed with people. We did not stay long as there are other beach options nearby that were far less crowded.

Our plan was to visit St. John for a day, go to the furthest beach and work our way back to Cruz Bay and stop at each bay along the way. After arriving in Cruz Bay we took a taxi ($18 for 2 of us) and he dropped us off where the road curves and by sign for Leinster Bay. Nice trail around as well to get your hike in. Water is so blue and clear here! Some of the stops along the way had places to stop and relax, but the beaches aren't very large and there are lots of rocky areas. We saw a mongoose here and there too. Plus if you walk up just past the sign for Leinster Bay, up the hill you can visit the Annaberg Sugar Plantation for a wonderful view of the bay.

We were told that we had to stop there, it was a beautiful place and glad we did. One of the best places on the island. The color of the water was amazing, we took a ton of pics.
