Caneel Bay Beach, Caneel Bay
(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Relax and explore the biodiversity in the waters of Caneel Bay Beach. Snorkelers love this beach thanks to the colorful marine life close to shore, with frequent sightings of exotic species such as angelfish, parrot fish, reef squid, sea turtle, barracuda, and damselfish. Be aware that while the beach is open to public, the lounge chairs belong to the local resort--meaning ordinary visitors have to pay exorbitant fees to sit in them.

  • We decided to spend the day at Caneel Bay Beach while on vacationing on St. Thomas. We took the ferry over to St. John and hopped a taxi over to Caneel Bay. It was so worth the trip! We had to pay $25...  more »
  • Gentle, clear, blue waters. Great swimming snorkeling, sand and sun. Snorkel equipment, sunfish sailboats, Hobie Cat - all available for guests. 
  • The water/beaches are wonderful, great scuba/ snorkeling food pretty good and the rooms nice but a bit hippy-ish... needing some good details work.
