Honeymoon Beach

Caneel Bay: Surrounded by National Park lands on the northern coast of St. John, Caneel Bay has several beautiful white-sand beaches that match the luxury of this world-famous resort. The entrance to the main beach at Caneel Bay is through the resort, but all beaches in the Virgin Islands are open to the public.

A second alternative to consider is Great Cruz Beach. The beach features soft white sands and calm waters, making it an excellent spot for the entire family. Palm trees, beach chairs and umbrellas sit on the coast, while the bay itself will likely be full of yachts and sailboats.

Frank Bay Beach: If you are looking for a spot to escape to, this may just be the place. Surrounded by much more famous beaches, Frank Bay offers much of the same, albeit a little smaller and with the benefit of being much less crowded.
