This beach, part of the Caneel Bay Resort, offers soft sand, blue water, snacks & beverages, floats, and snorkeling. Plenty of beach chairs. Restroom facilities. Donkeys may come and lounge nearby. A great way to spend the day.

Beautiful beach, soft white sand, bar hut where you can order lunch and no kids. What more do you need?

As guest of Caneel Bay Resort - was glad this beach was private for guests of the resort. Quiet spot with food and beverage service available at your chair. Awesome snorkeling and related water activities. Plenty of unique to see below the water line.

We stayed at Caneel Bay Resort in Cottage 7A. The beaches are amazing! The rooms are not high raise, but blend into nature. Seven amazing beaches, Scotts, Hawknest and Paradise are my favs.

It is supposed to be adult only but that was not always the case. Has a beach bar serving drinks and food. Spent most of our time there. Most diverse snorkeling. It's like a postcard.

A beautiful long beach that is very private. We saw turtles and rays every time we swam here and even saw a barracuda one day! This beach is quiet, never too busy, and with plenty of shade. Specatcular!

You can visit, but you can't use the resort's chairs. And you have to pay to park at Caneel Bay if you are not staying there. I think it's $20 to park. There are so many wonderful beaches on St. John that you won't miss... More
