|About these ratings|
Caneel Bay is adjacent to the Caneel Bay Resort, but it's free for everyone to enjoy. And according to travelers, you should definitely take advantage. Very few tourists who aren't guests of the hotel ever venture to this northwest St. John beach, and as a result, it's one of the more romantic spots on the island. If you're feeling adventurous, try the 30-minute swim from the coast of Caneel to the even more isolated Honeymoon Beach. For something less strenuous, try out the hotel's top-notch restaurant for lunch or dinner.
If you are not staying at one of the nearby luxury resorts, reaching Caneel Bay can be difficult. If you can find a taxi near the shops of Cruz Bay, it's only a short jaunt from there. But you can also walk or bike the approximately 1.5 miles. The easiest option is, of course, arriving via boat.
