Owner description: This narrow, sea-grape-tree-lined stretch of sand is a popular beach on St John, especially for island residents, which offers gazebos for parties, barbecues or family get-togethers.

Hawksnest may be our favorite beach on St John. If we can only visit one, this is the one. Very quiet and not too crowded any time we've gone. Great to have a little lunch and drinks and just hang out all day.

When we pulled up here by dinghy, there was only one other person on the beach. The photos from other reviewers do it justice. Crystal clear water, nothing but the sound of gentle waves on the beach. This is a place to spend the day lounging on white sand!

But not watermelon or trunk. Great beach, maybe the best sand, but not the best snorkel (it can still be nice)

One of my favorites of all the beaches!! Nice picnic area bring munchies and lots of sunscreen. I heard a few others mention bug spray but they did not bother me!!

We went to almost every single beach on St Johns and always with our snorkel gear. The best spots are literally right off the beach and you will see a world of wonder. Just be careful as some of the coral are in shallow water and you could find yourself - or your kids - with some contact and that is usually bad for both human and coral. The parking lot is not huge so you may want to get there early.
