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

There's a small concession on Scott Beach serving drinks. If you're staying at Caneel, be sure to try snorkeling here.

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.

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
