Owner description: Located on St. John's north shore, this beautiful beach is located inside the Caneel Bay property and assessable only to guests of the resort.

We stayed at Turtle bay and loved this quiet corner of the Caneel Bay resort. The snorkeling is quite nice. Abundant fish of all kinds school around the rocks on the right side of the beach. On the left is one of the most beautiful coral reefs on the island. We never saw more than a few other people on the beach, so it felt like our own private place. And when we wanted to snorkel with sea turtles, we walked around the corner to Hawksnest beach. The rooms are wonderful with great views. We thought the ground floor rooms would be night because you can walk right onto the beach, but we came to appreciate our second-floor room because of the cathedral ceiling and nobody walking by our open windows. Either way, you'll love Turtle Bay.

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.

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!

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.
