Caneel Bay Beach, Caneel Bay

(3.9/5 based on 130+ 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.
