The most convenient one to visit is Cruz Bay Beach. Keep in mind that you can find this beach a short distance from the guest house, so you won't have far to go if you're looking to enjoy a beautiful stretch of coastline. While it may not be the largest or most tropical beach on the island, this beach remains one of the more popular spots to spend a day. 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 interested in a more secluded and private beach scene, Salomon Bay Beach may be just what you're looking for. 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.
