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!

This was our favorite beach at Caneel Bay. The water was crystal clear and calm. Watched for turtles coming up to breath the 3 days we were there. Donkeys, birds, fish and pelicans also shared the beach with us! Bar and food service was convenient...More
