    Quiet, beautiful beach
    We hiked the Lind Point Trail (~25 minutes) to get to the beach, from the USVI visitor center. There is parking at the visitor center, and bathrooms. When we got to the beach on a Saturday morning, it was relatively empty. We waded and marveled at the beauty... boats and other islands in the distance, intense turquoise water. We didn't notice any concessions or other amenities there when we visited; maybe too early in the morning? It was absolutely lovely, and peaceful.

    Take a deep breath
    Saint John was everything we heard and read about and more. Picturesque, magical, tropical, relaxing, beautiful…the list goes on. Delete ALOT of your old pics because your arm will get tired here. The contrasts from water to sky to sand to trees is unlike any other island we’ve been to. There’s always someplace fun to eat and drink (expensive). You can shop at one of the few supermarkets (very expensive.) and make your own. There’s really only one shopping area (mongoose junction) so you won’t be distracted with that for very long. We stayed in a villa on Mamey Peak Road near Coral Bay. (Note: if you’re going to advertise that you have a hot tub, it should actually be working) Please note that Mamey Peak Road is not really a road because it’s an unpaved, pothole filled, hilly, rutted track. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The roads on St. John are an exciting adventure to drive up and down with some hairpin turns, lots of switchbacks, rocks, donkeys, deer, roosters, etc. Get a Jeep! Rental cars are abusively expensive. We would go back tomorrow.

    Best Beach Experience on St John
    This was my favorite beach on St. John. We parked at the NP Visitor Center in Cruz Bay around 10:30 AM - there were a few spots left. It took about 30 minutes for us to hike the Lind Point Trail to Honeymoon Beach. The trail was well-maintained and had good signage, and if you take the lower trail there isn't much elevation change (but also no views). At the beach we snorkeled at the western end and saw a ton of fish and beautiful coral. The snorkeling was the best we saw during this trip. After snorkeling we got refreshing drinks from the bar and used the shower facilities, which were nicely kept. Then we hiked back to Cruz Bay. To get to Honeymoon Beach, you can also park at what used to be Caneel Bay Resort and take a shuttle for $6 per person. It's operated by the Caneel Bay Beach Club, and you can also rent a chair from them. We like hiking so we opted for that instead.

Great beach with beautiful views - concessions were crazy expensive ($25 chair rental?) and even though we hiked there (about 25 minutes) it was more crowded than I thought it would be.

One of the most beautiful beaches we visited during our trip. They have chair rentals, great drinks at various beach bars, and some light food available as well. It’s a very well maintained beach too and not super crowded. There’s also a hiking path that’s roughly under a mile and leads to a scenic overview before getting to the beach!

We did the hike and it was only about 30 minutes and not that strenuous. There is an option to take a taxi which we decided to do on the way back. Some restrooms and small kiosk for drinks. Moderate crowd and good Sandy Beach.

Beach is great - 4 stars! The new contractors running bar, rentals and taxi service are robbing their customers - VERY expensive! There are great beaches on St John, so this was total service at our feet...beach service was good, but you are paying extremely high prices for this service. $12 shuttle from parking lot to beach, $22 premade sandwiches they purchased at the local deli, $25 lounge chair rental. If you go, plan on dropping several hundred if want to indulge in all services.
We've experienced this beach and the various previous contracts running it over the last several years, it was a bit of a shock this time.

Best beach ever!! So beautiful and quiet and relaxing! Short hike to get there via Lindt Point Trail… can be done by kids and older agile adults.

Rental cars are abusively expensive.

We would go back tomorrow.
