Beaches in Coral Bay

The sweeping shores of Coral Bay range from soft, fine sand to slightly rocky and almost black.  While the waters remain calm and clear thanks to the absence of  rivers feeding murky waters into the area, beachgoers will experience a hillier terrain behind them, rather than the flat lands lined with coconut palms they may have come to expect in the Caribbean.

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will discover several beaches to consider, though each of them are found nearby. Snorkeling is an option at several locations, for vacationers who are so inclined. To get additional information about a specific beach just click on the names of the ones you would like to know more about.

Waterlemon Cay Beach

Pelican Beach: Just a few yards off shore is a long reef great for snorkeling, though keep the undertow in mind. On shore, there is 1,200 feet of white sand with palm trees, accessible facilities with a restroom, a restaurant, and a bar.

Another alternative that beach-goers can consider is Leinster Bay Beach. Leinster Bay, located on northern coast of St. Johns, offers a small beach area that is perfect for exploring the region, especially the exciting Watermelon Cay. The area features a variety of sealife among the seagrass, including starfish, sea cucumbers, and green turtles.

Lameshur Bay: A white, sandy beach tucked away between tropical foliage, Lameshur Bay is one you won't want to overlook. Directly off of one of the local roads and part of the Virgin Islands National Park, guests are treated to a quiet beach experience, preserved and natural.
