The closest one is Cruz Bay Beach. Because you can find this beach a few hundred yards from the guest house, your group won't have to journey far to find a place to sit by the water. 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 you're searching for a more peaceful beach scene, Salomon Bay Beach might be a good choice. Almost always deserted, this beach is hidden away within the lush confines of the national park.
