“Beautiful beach, water- good snorkeling”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Easy walk from the parking lot - small, quiet beach except for the intermittent snorkeling expeditions that stopped there- the snorkeling is nice at the far end - nice outcroppings of coral - easy to find a relaxing spot to sit- for us it was the picture perfect beach

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Coral is not as healthy as it was a few years ago and the beach is overcrowded with boat tourists. Apparently there are more boats on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so other days might be better.

“Gorgeous. Personal favorite beach on island.”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

My favorite beach on the island by far (out of those we visited, Trunk, Cinnamon, Maho, Hawksnest). We hiked from town and arrived around 11 AM to a mostly deserted beach, we had rented chairs/kayaks/snorkel gear for the day but we probably only needed the snorkel gear, the rest wasn't worth it. The snorkeling was awesome, I saw turtles, tons of fish, gorgeous coral and fans, HUGE sea urchins and a handful or rays. The water was so incredibly clear I could hardly believe it (first trip to the Caribbean for me!) I like that the hike makes the beach a little less crowded and since it's the furthest for the folks at Caneel it was basically empty the whole time we were there. We walked up to Caneel for lunch, overpriced but it was actually really good so I can't complain much.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This is our second trip to St John and what we do is hike to Salomon Beach first [our favorite beach on St John] and then hike over to Honeymoon Beach right next door. Honeymoon gets crowded with the charter snorkeling boats early afternoon. But as soon as the boats leave, it is a great spot to snorkel. We have gotten lucky and spotten several turtles there both times. Also a small nurse shark right on the rocks close to shore.

“Gorgeous Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Not crowded and absolutely stunning! This is one of the best beaches we visited on the island. You have to walk a little ways to get there, but it's plenty worth it and it seems to keep the crowds away.
