One of our favorite beaches. The sea turtles were everywhere, Caneel Bay delivers lunch to you there, and the water was gorgeous. We could stay there forever.

Amazing shallow coral field all the way to the right (when facing the ocean), about 25 yards out. Beautiful coral and fish. Get there before it's all bleached out. Food & drinks available on south end of beach
