  • Address: St. John, US Virgin Islands
  • Admission: Free

Caneel Bay is one of the first beaches you come to as you drive up North Shore Road out of St John’s main port, Cruz Bay. Much of the coastline here is monopolized by an extensive resort, but they guarantee access to Caneel Bay and their restaurants adjacent to the beach are accessible also.

The area was once a plantation and the ruins of the old sugar works make an atmospheric detour. The beach itself is a three-dimensional postcard, while snorkelers will delight in sting rays, barracudas and other sea life.

Practical Info

Caneel Bay is in western St. John, a few minutes’ drive from the port of Cruz Bay. Nearby Honeymoon Bay can only be reached via a (short) forest trail, so it’s even more secluded, though largely without facilities.
