Didn't get to Little Lameshur which is just fine. Left the car at the end of the pavement. Or at least where the road ends, before somehow a ton of concrete shows up again. Walked about 3/10 of mile to the Tektite trail head. Fun little hike until you realize which does have some gorgeous views. However, the markers are... More

Because I heard the roar was pretty rough, I was nervous about going to this south side beach which is at the end of 107, the road out of coral bay. You go past salt pond to where the road turns into a dirt road & keep going. At this point, there is a USVI parks sign that says it's... More

Beautiful beach with parking right along the beach, but the road is in terrible shape, and dodgy even with four wheel drive. Not worth the trip considering you drive right by Salt Pond!

I read all the reviews about the "dangerous" drive into this beach on the dirt road. Please do not have any worries about this drive unless you do not have a four wheeled drive car. The jeep we rented was a piece of cake. Bumpy and a little muddy, but no problems at all. When you reach the end of... More

I read a few reviews that this beach was not worth the somewhat uncomfortable 1.5 mile drive from the main road, but I totally disagree. Once you reach your destination, you can park right at the beach, which is sandy with a pebble entry to the glass clear water. This is a great spot to relax, snorkel or paddle board.... More

This is like your own beach. But you need a jeep to get there and back. It's usual only for people who are staying a long time as it's off the beaten path. Such a special place. Bring your own food and drinks.

Tucked away on the far south side of St. John, Lameshur Bay awaits the adventurous visitor. The road is challenging, especially the first time you take it. But oce you arrive, ahhhhhh. The beach itself is rocky, and you need to find a path in through the rocks, but the beach is exquisite - never too crowded - the water... More

This beach takes the longest to get to for us but it's so worth it. We visit every trip to St. John. The snorkeling is amazing and the beach is so peaceful that you feel like you are at the end of the earth. It gets very hot here though. We splashed and played in the water all day. It... More

Getting There: Little Lameshur is at the end of the road (literally) on the south shore of the island. If you're staying near Cruz Bay, the drive is about 45 hilly and curvy minutes one way so it might make sense to consider one of the numerous more conveniently located North Shore beaches. We were looking for something a little... More

After a trip on the dirt road a trip down to the beach snorkeling is spectacular. By far the most tourist never visit the first beach great Lameshur which in my opinion has even better snorkeling. The beach is Rocky however this keeps away many tourists and keeps the water cleaner with less damage to the coral
