Uncrowded, Easy Parking

Great beach for Turtles. Easy parking, uncrowded, and a great ride along the coast. We hit this beach many times when we are in St. John.

This is, to say the least one very beautiful beach and bay. We saw some turtles, a sting ray, some fish and some coral but the water was wonderful. The only problem is it can be difficult to find a place to park here unless you get here earlier in the day. There are no showers or restrooms.

We love this beach for it's convenience (very nice to park across the street when lugging all that beach gear) , it's beautiful soft sand and crystal clear water and for all the available natural shade. We spent many happy days here in our trip.

Beautiful beach with calm blue water and white sand. The first beach we visited on the island and it really set the tone of our vacation- relaxing and amaaaazing! Loved it! Bring your own food and drinks and there are a couple of toilets at the west end of the beach.

Get there early, limited parking! A hot spot and worth the admission for a beautiful view. No SUP boards allowed though bummer because its the easiest beach to paddle to Johnson Reef to.

This is by far my favorite beach in St. John. The water is shallow and warm here, so it is a popular place for sea turtles to go and feed on the sea grass. The beach itself is narrower than some of the others (like Trunk Bay) but it is typically less crowded and quieter. The first time I snorkeled... More

I'm a fair complexion and I don't like being in the sun for long periods of time. I found a nice spot up underneath a large tree that was feet away from the oceans waves. This was my favorite beach in st Johns. (So far)

Narrow soft white sandy beach lined in trees to provide shade as needed. Sea grass provides nice feeding area for huge sea turtles. Also saw stingrays, nurse sharks, extra large trunk fish, hermit crabs, squid and very colorful parrot fish as well as barrel coral along the right side. Protected area with soft waves would be nice beach for children.

Thank Texas055
