Scott Beach, Caneel Bay

(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
With glimmering aquamarine waters and white sands, Scott Beach is picture perfect. The beach itself forms part of the Caneel Bay Resort, and as such access to the public is sometimes limited, with non-paying guests asked to refrain from using the beach facilities. Once on the beach, a shallow shore with a bed of sea grass provides the perfect environment for sea turtles and rays, so grab your snorkeling gear and head out to play. Be careful further out, as currents can get quite strong. The beach doesn't have any public restrooms. Make Scott Beach part of your personalized Caneel Bay itinerary using our Caneel Bay itinerary planner.

  • We chose to stay in the villas on Scott Beach at Caneel Bay Resort because we think it's the best beach on the property, maybe even the whole island. We just loved it! The water is crystal clear and a...  more »
