U. S. Virgin Islands Sports & Outdoors

  • Kayaking at Cinnamon Bay

    On our last trip to St. John, we rented kayaks from Cinnamon Bay and spent the afternoon kayaking to Maho Bay and then around Mary Point to Whistling Cay. While the kayaking took a lot out of us, it was a lot of fun. I plan to do this again on my next trip to St. John but I plan to come prepared. Last time, we brought barely any food and drinks...

  • Coki Beach

    Small beach with a somewhat hectic feel due to numerous little shops and merchants along its edges. Also difficult to park. The swells ruined visibility the day we went there, so can't comment on the supposedly good snorkeling. The aquarium next door was a fun spot for a few hours diversion (price was ~$15/person).

  • Secret Harbour

    Good snorkeling on St. Thomas, which doesn't get all that much mention. It's the publicly-accessible beach of the Secret Harbour resort on the south-west St. Thomas coastline. A manicured, resort beach feel, but nice snorkeling all over the bay with scattered coral heads and many fish.

  • Salt Pond Bay

    Salt Pond is a change of pace from the north shore beaches - it has negligable current but the beach is apparently left to nature, burrs that irritate your bare feet and all. There are only a scant few shaded spots on the beach, so arrive early if you want one. It's way down on the southeast corner of the island, ~45 minutes beyond the north shore...

  • Caneel Bay

    Public-accessible beach in front of the main building of the Caneel Bay resort. It's has a more manicured, less quintissential Carribean beach feel than the National Park north shore standouts (Cinnamon, Trunk, Hawksnest), but this is really splitting hairs. Snorkeling is good off to the north (right) side of the bay as you get about 1/2 way out....

  • Hawksnest Bay

    Hawksnest seemed like the quietest of the big 3 north coast beaches (along with Cinnamon and Trunk) - but like the others had great sand, scenery, and shaded spots to occupy for the day. The reef was closer to the surface here than the other two in spots, limiting just how much can be explored without risking damaging the reef by kicking it. The...

  • Trunk Bay

    Trunk Bay pretty much lives up to all the hoopla surrounding it. Just like Cinnamon with great sand, great spots to occupy for the day, beautiful surroundings, and good snorkeling. A more traditional linear beach than Cinnamon (which juts out here and there). The snorkeling was good on the west side of the cay (including and beyond the famous...

  • Cinnamon Bay

    Our choice of best beach in St. John. Great sand, great shaded spots to spend the day on the beach. Great snorkeling all the way around the cay (little island in the bay) - which is only 100 yards or so from the beach. Sheltered from waves (non-swell days). Restrooms available and a snack bar - is the beach for a campground, but open to the public.
