The good news: this world-class stretch of white sand and turquoise water is St. John's most photographed beach, which features a marked underwater trail for beginning snorkelers. The bad news: because of its popularity, it can get very crowded with cruise ship passengers and members of sightseeing tours.

Beautiful beach. Go early to get parking. Shade in morning & under the mangrove in afternoon. Has bathrooms, showers, bar & food. If you want a quieter less busy beach go to Jumbie beach just up the road. Birds are relentless if you have food...More
