“Great body surfing late in the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have a young son and this worked out to be the best place for him. Waves were big enough to be fun but not dangerous. Good snorkeling around the rocks at either end. Good location for the 4-5 afternoon tea on the hill above at turtle bay house.

“AH Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

It's in the US VIRGIN ISLANDS. It's on the same grounds as Caneel Bay. Turtle Bay has their own dining room and rooms to stay. It's quieter than Caneel Bay. It's a nice change .

Enjoy!

“My favorite beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

A beautiful beach with soft white sand. A perfect day is to enjoy watching the boats go by in the channel, the sun changing the view on the island in the distance, and the ever changing magnificent blue water. The rocky shore add to the experience and just awesome to relax in the water.

“Nice beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Nice cove near the Turtle Bay estate. Great for strolling but the sea can be a bit rough. There is a lot of boat traffic on the channel.
