This beach is AMAZING! A little difficult to get to but well worth it! It's not very crowded and so relaxing. There is a small bar and little gift shop on the beach. The bartender was very friendly. Definitely worth the trek to get to!

Honeymoon beach is a favorite place to spend the day at the beach! We purchased the day pass which gave access to kayaks, paddle boards, beach chairs, and other beach floats, and locker for our use all day long. My teen boys loved the paddle board and kayaks! The snorkeling was amazing....so many fish, sea turtles, Rays close to shore... More

The reward is this beach after you hike to caneel bay overlook and then back down Lindt trail and the beach is your prize! Beautiful clear water with some snorkeling to be done!

Have been to St John several times but this was first time to Honeymoon Beach. Beautiful water, great sand, and very accessible paddle board rental for the kids.

We hiked to this beach using the national park trail (about 15-20 min hike), but it was well worth it. You can snorkel right off the beach!! Beautiful water, bathroom and eating/shopping facilities. Hit this beach first when visiting the island. You won't regret it!

I hiked to this beach from the national park visitor center. It's a fairly short hike, but for being in a national park, you never feel that far from civilization. The beach itself is fairly nice. It's a sandy comfortable beach, not super crowded. It wasn't my favorite snorkeling spot, but there are plenty of other places to snorkel on... More

Another of the great National Park beaches. This one takes a bit of a hike, either from the NP Visitor Center, intersection of Lind Point and North Shore Rds, or the Caneel Bay entrance. The beach is wide and smooth, with several shade trees. A vendor rents/sells water sports gear and food, even having hammocks to rent. Many boat snorkeling... More

Went here from a boating trip. The boat anchored and we snorkeled to the beach. My son had fun running from the shore into the water and my husband and I took turns snorkeling around the area. At the time we went the area wasn't as busy Coki Beach, which made it nice because it was calmer. Great beach to... More
