This is because it will likely be the first beach you see as you approach St. John on the ferry from St. Thomas.

If instead you're looking for a beach where sunbathers can find plenty of privacy, Salomon Bay Beach might be a good choice. Almost always deserted, this beach is hidden away within the lush confines of the national park. It's any easy hike from either Caneel Bay or Cruz Bay. You can find it located less than a mile north-northeast of the apartment building.
