A beautiful bay with smooth sand, Little Lameshur Bay is the perfect spot to plan a day of swimming and snorkeling.

The view from Little Lameshur Bay alone is worth the trip: Bordeaux Mountain, St. Thomas' highest peak is visible from the shore.

Located on the island of St. John, 1.9 miles west of Friis Bay, Little Lameshur Bay always welcomes visitors lodging on this part of the island. However, even if you aren't staying nearby, you are free to stop by to check out the sights. It is 2.2 miles south-southwest of Coral Bay.

A dirt road just off Route 107 near Lameshur Bay Plantation Ruins leads to the beach.
