We actually decided to come back to Waterlemon Cay two days in a row because it was beautiful! Both days we were on St. John we rented a Jeep for $60 dollars (which was so worth it because we got to do and see whatever we wanted) we went up to Annaberg plantation and found this beach by accident truthfully. It was our own private beach the first time we explored it. We hiked up to the top of Johnny's trail which you should definitely do if physically possibly it's not too hard of a trail and the view at the top is beautiful! When we got done hiking it was dark so we decided to come to St. John the next day and I am so glad we did! The water at Waterlemon Cay is so clear it's like glass! We saw two turtles, multiple sting ray, over 10 star fish, barracuda, and lots of reef fish of all kinds! I will say that I did cut my leg on the rocks out by the island and I was slightly nervous swimming around with it bleeding that way but nothing bothered me at all. We thought the best snorkeling on St. Thomas has been Coki Beach but this trumps Coki! The current out by the little island isn't terrible. I know people have said it was. I am in no way a professional swimmer and made it all the way around the island with my husband but I will say that on the other side it did become rougher and made me a little nervous. But the coral and wildlife out by it is beautiful. If you're looking more for turtles or stingray stay to the sea grass up by the shore area more. If you check out the old ruins on trails behind beach there are thousands of little crabs crawling around on them. Do bring water, snacks, and use the restroom before going because it is a little bit of a walk and there are no restrooms. There is a restroom in Annaberg Parking lot but you have to walk about a mile from beach to get there. All in all it was an amazing experience and we loved Waterlemon Cay!
