Went to this beach because of disappointment in the snorkeling at Buccaneer. Still disappointed here as well, as the entry is very gradually sloping, and very difficult not to end up touching coral or getting stuck by a sea urchin. Go a little farther to Tamarind Reef Resort, snorkeling definitely better there.

this is probably one of our favorite day trips, great beach,generally calm waters, and great sunsets as long as clouds don't spoil it. Great for kids, and shade is available if you arrive early. Truly a hidden gem. Jimbo L Denver Co.

Shoys is a great swimming beach with wonderful snorkeling. The beach is clean and uncrowded while the water is calm, clear and warm. Easy access in and out and you can float all day. Off to the right near the point is great snorkeling with eagle rays and turtles and not bad coral. And of course fish and lobster! There... More

This beach is a must see when you are in St Croix! It is gorgeous and features a nice long sandy beach. Never very busy and the water is crystal clear and calm.

This is a definite must visit beach. First is the great entrance with the overhang trees...beautiful! Then you step out onto a beautiful secluded beach. Each time we went almost no one there,pretty much to ourselves. Snorkeling or floating or just sunning...very nice!!!

Definitely worth a visit. Lovely beach with great swimming area.Just getting to the beach from the parking is unique. Take a towel or beach chair, some suntan lotion and something to quench your thirst with you as there are no amenities.

I can't get enough of this place. It's open but seems so private. We've been there on a few occasions and have always been alone on the entire beach. When you park you have to walk through a canopy of mangroves when you get to the clearing it's definitely one of those "IS THIS REAL" Moments! IT IS, CHECK IT... More

I stayed a the Pyramid house and this was our beach. I loved the shade from the sea grape trees. There are small waves to kayak or SUP on. Shelling is pretty good, and there is fair snorkeling .
