Beautiful bay with great rentals (see House of Open arms) and very nice beaches very close by. Well worth seeking a rental on this end of the island.

We took a drive towards Annaberg Plantation and what coastline views of the Island. We saw lots of Donkeys eating on the side of the road. The surrounding areas are great watch out for the Columbo Smoothie stand you'll run into it.

Spent a week in the hills overlooking Coral Bay via Airbnb and it was spectacular! Best part for me was the sunrise over the bay with the pearly eyed thrashers singing their sweet songs every morning. Coral Bay is laid back and "real" island living....More

There are a few good look out locations to view Coral Bay but to get the real feel you should take a drive alone the Bay and enjoy. There are good restaurants alone the way and the color of the water is amazing.

This is the place to go if you don't want crowds but do want great snorkeling and hiking. The restaurants are few but very good. Not much shopping, but that's how we liked it!

Just go you will not regret the trip at all!!!Just head into Cruz bay, stop at uncle joe's chicken and ribs and start your trip from there. Only a handful of roads, shake and bake the island. You'll see what I mean. Have fun!!! Steve

Coral Bay is laid back, quiet, beautiful, convenient and the best part of the island. There are plenty of places to eat and shop and you are close to a lot of great snorkeling and sunning beaches. Why put up with the craziness of Cruz...More
