This beach is amazing. The soft sand and beautiful turquoise water made this beach one of the most enjoyable parts of my vacation to the Virgin Islands. It is a great place to lie down and read, or just take in the nature. The water is a comfortable temperature and very calm, which made it a great place to swim as well. Perhaps the most important aspect of this beach... IT'S FREE!

Trunk Bay ... Tourist trap ... Long lines, and you have to pay or admission ... Cinnamon Bay ... No admission fee, beautiful beaches, no admission fee, and great hiking trails too. Hike up to the ruins (.6 mies) across the street and you'll be rewarded with a great view of the bay.

This was my first choice over Trunk Bay but the day we visited the waves were quite large so we headed over to Trunk Bay where they were calmer.

This beach is beautiful. There is a mini mart at the entrance- beer and snacks. On the beach you can rent chairs and snorkel gear. The beach can get crowded. Good for campers. We have been there when the waves were plentiful and calm.

Locals recommended this beach over Trunk Bay- free and not as touristy.

Cinnamon Bay is a beautiful long sand beach with some shade, snorkeling, and good parking. Facilities are there for public use.
