Parking area available, but must use golf carts to get to the beach. Gate blocks entrance directly to the beach. Hurricane Maria and Irma in Sept-Oct 2017 destroyed the resort.

The resort has not been rebuilt, but the beach was incredibly beautiful and the crystal blue waters made for a great place to snorkel and swim with the turtles. Incredible!

Cancel was destroyed by Irma and it is closed. They have not started to clean up or rebuild. They property is guarded and you cannot get onto it. The only way to approach the beach is by boat.

Caneel took a lot of damage from the recent hurricanes. In fact, the resort is pretty much gone. However, the bay is still there, and the waters are still just as beautiful.

It is not open but volunteers are there working the grounds. It is an easier walk to Honeymoon Beach from there but there are no trespassing signs. Hope they open soon.
