Cruz Bay Beach is probably the most convenient option to visit near the guest house. Bear in mind that this beach is a reasonable traveling distance off, so your group won't have to go far to enjoy a beautiful shoreline. 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 looking for a less raucous 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.
