Honeymoon Beach is the closest beach to Cruz Bay. It is a short taxi ride to Caneel Bay where you then walk an additional 8 minutes to the Honeymoon Beach. Hikers have two access points: first is a one mile walk along the Lind Point Trail which begins in Cruz Bay at the VI National Park Visitor Center, and the other is a steeper and shorter trail from the top of the Lind Point trail at the entrance to the Biosphere Reserve Offices. Sail boats also occasionally hook up to a mooring off the shore to allow their guests to snorkel the colorful reefs on both ends of the beach.
Wildlife abounds at Honeymoon Beach on St John. Guests love photographing the gentle wild donkeys, a cackle of chickens, rare mongoose, occasional iguana and the shy white tailed deer.
Hungry Guests often order their freshly grilled Panini from the Canella’s Cafe at Caneel Bay when they pass through the Cafe on the way to the beach, or they place their order with the beach attendant at the Hut and their food is delivered to the Beach. Canella’s favorite treat is homemade Gelatto Ice Cream.
