We chose to stay in the villas on Scott Beach at Caneel Bay Resort because we think it's the best beach on the property, maybe even the whole island. We just loved it!

Good beach, great beach front food and drink service. Informed children under 12 not allow on this "quiet" beach.

The premier beach at Caneel Bay Resort. The sand is like sugar, the sea grape trees provide shade if you want it, and you can always find sea turtles. The snorkeling is beautiful near the buoy. But the sunsets. Oh wow.

It defies description; this west facing beach in Caneel is never crowded, is swimming pool clear, with a very gentle surf. Far and away the finest beach in the Virgin Isles.

We were lucky enough to stay at Caneel Bay resort. Scott Beach is within the resort and one of the most beautiful beaches. I would stay at Caneel Bay again just to be visit this beach.

This is the beach to go snorkeling if you want to see sea turtles, and not that many humans nearby. There is a great coral reef too with the same if not better marine life than you see at Trunk Bay. It's never crowded, no children are allowed there, and it's reserved only for guests of Caneel Bay Resort.
