Cinnamon Bay is the closest choice to consider near these accommodations. Because this beach can be found a short distance from the villa complex, you really won't have to travel far to see it. Located on the northern coast of St. John, Cinnamon Bay provides a long strip of white, sandy beach, surrounded by the natural foliage of the Virgin Islands National Park. A nature trail with information signs on tropical foilage is just across from the campground and begins at the ruins of a sugar mill. Natural attractions like this in the Virgin Islands are known to be filled with both people and amenities, and this beach is no different: With on-site facilities like picnic tables, restrooms, and showers vacationers will have all they need for a day outside.

Also, consider Cruz Bay Beach which is home to plenty of activity.
