“Our home in St. John”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Extremely quiet and peaceful beach with excellent snorkeling on both sides in the rocks / coral. Sand so soft and thick. A little current out past the rocks and regular yacht / sail boat travel through the channel to view.

Great views and great restaurant. The beach is very private and has great views. They also have tea time at the building on the bluff overlooking the beach.

“Favorite beach in Caneel Bay”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a second floor room on Turtle Bay. Amazing view. Peaceful sound of the waves. Close to tea service location each day at 4. Many weddings at nearby point but not a problem. Mobile bar comes by regularly to see if you need food or beverages (Debbie is the best!).
