Here are some of the beaches that will highlight your stay in St. John!

Trunk Bay is the most famous beach on St. John. It is within 10 minutes of both houses and has some of the best snorkeling and waves you can get on the island. It even has a marked out underwater snorkeling trail for novice snorkelers to learn.  It is a local favorite, with a place right on the property to get food and drinks, restrooms and showers, and rent aquatic equipment.  Admission: Paid ($4/p)

Cinnamon Bay has one of longest stretches of sand and beach St. John has to offer. Not only is it the longest, but also the most prettiest. Beautiful landscape, offshore reefs for snorkeling, and a scenic view of the West side of St. John and beyond. You can walk about 50 feet into the water at Cinnamon Bay before it drops off into beautiful sea fans, schools of fish, and even octopus gardens. Admission: Free

Hawksnest is a smaller bay in St. John, but has one of the most relaxing environments there is. It is indeed one of the busiest beaches, being closest to town and easy to get to, but it has a beautiful view of the sea with plenty of shade and seclusion that a couple or family might be seeking to escape to. Admission: Free

Maho Bay is a very small beach, good for a early morning stop to start the day or to end it. Not much sand to lay out on or play in, but it has some very cool aquatic life. Fish will swim right up to you with no hesitation to say hello. Watching the sunrise and sunset here is a perfect way to start or end your day while staying on St. John. Admission: Free
