Welcome to Island Life

In addition to Lovango’s two on-island beach options, the Lovango Beach Club on the southside and Crescent Beach on the northside, you can take one of our daily morning / early afternoon boat departures from Lovango to Cruz Bay, St. John to experience one of the famous National Park Beaches.

Getting to St. John's National Park Beaches

Lovango’s boat departs at 9:15 am or 10:45 am. There is one afternoon return trip from Cruz Bay at 3:30 pm.

Grab a taxi near the dock and enjoy your day at the National Park beach of your choice.

Tips

  • Before catching a taxi, we suggest picking up your lunch at the Northshore Deli located at Mongoose Junction, just up the main street on the left from our Cruz Bay dock location. Some of the beaches have concessions.
  • Remember to bring your beach towels, beach chairs, sunglasses and sunblock for the day!

  • Beautiful white sand
  • Stunning crystal-clear, aqua-blue waters
  • Towering coconut palms lining the beach
  • Crystal clear snorkeling from the beach

Trunk Bay

St John’s most popular, most photographed and most visited beach is Trunk Bay. It’s arguably the most beautiful beach on St John; if not all of the Caribbean! It’s a Must-See on many visitor’s STJ Bucket List. And we agree! Trunk Bay has it all. Guests can enjoy white sand, towering palms, crystal clear water, the Underwater Snorkeling Trail, food, drink, showers/bathrooms and snorkel gear and chair rentals. It’s also the only St John beach with a lifeguard. Entrance fee.

Snorkeling at Trunk Bay

Snorkeling at Trunk Bay is best just off the center of the beach around Trunk Cay. Keep an eye out for brain corals, seafans, gorgonians, Blue Bell Tunicate corals, and a large variety of tropical fish including French Angelfish, Yellowtail Snapper, Puddingwife Wrasse, Blueheaded Wrasse, Jeweled Damsels, Queen Triggerfish, Blue Runners and Beau Gregory Damsels.

Maho Bay

Maho Bay is on everybody’s favorite beach list, and it should be! It’s convenient – sitting right along North Shore Road. Families will love the convenience of unloading coolers, chairs, snorkel gear and floaties! There are bathrooms, grills and a covered pavilion with picnic tables on the western end of the beach. The beach is narrow and lined with towering coconut palms and seagrape trees for shade. The water is shallow with a sandy bottom– making it a great spot for younger kids and parents with floats.

Snorkeling at Maho Bay

Snorkeling at Maho Bay Beach is one of the reasons people love this location. The seagrass beds that are about 30 yards off the beach are a great place to see sea turtles, rays, conch and tarpon. In fact, Maho is our #1 recommendation for anybody that wants a chance to swim with a sea turtle on St. John. Avid snorkelers will want to head towards the eastern and western shorelines. Here you’ll find thin patch reefs that are home to a good selection of hard and soft corals and a dizzying collection of tropical fish species.

Cinnamon Bay

Cinnamon Bay is the longest white sand beach on St. John. Just like Trunk Bay, you’ll find a cay just off the beach. And just like other St. John beaches you’ll find palm trees, seagrapes for shade and some good shallow-water snorkeling. You’ll also find bathrooms, RainTree Café, watersports rentals and a souvenir shop.

Snorkeling at Cinnamon Bay

Snorkeling at Cinnamon Bay has several options. Snorkel around the Cay that’s just off the beach. You’ll discover a wide variety of fish species including large Permit and Jacks, Queen Angelfish, French Angelfish, Blueheaded Wrasse, Pork Fish, French Grunts and more. Corals tend to be hard corals like maze brain corals, fire coral, mustard coral, staghorn coral and Pillar corals. Snorkel off the eastern end of the beach and you’ll find a large table reef in 5′ to 15′ of water. It’s an amazing spot with plenty of fish and corals – many that aren’t common in other places around St John. Snorkeling the western edge – towards Peter Bay – the corals and patch reef are thin. One point of interest is the sunken plane wreckage just off of Little Cinnamon Beach. It’s not much more than a motor, prop and portion of the wing of a small plane. But it’s a fun sight – in 8′ or less of shallow water.

While the name might imply that it’s only for lovers, Honeymoon Beach is a great beach for couples and families. Soft white sand, shallow water entry, beautiful aqua blue water, snorkeling and watersports – make it the perfect St John beach destination! Visitors can either hike the Lind Point Trail from Cruz Bay; park at Caneel Bay Resort and walk the approx. .5 mi EW, or take a taxi to Caneel and ride the Honeymoon Beach Hut’s golf cart to Honeymoon Beach.

Snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach

Snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach is best on the eastern and western ends of the beach. Along the shoreline that connects to Caneel Bay you’ll find huge schools of Sergeant Major Damsels, wrasse, French Angelfish, sea turtles, rays and a wide variety of hard and soft corals. Just off the center of the beach is a good spot to see a sea turtle. And along the western end – towards Salomon Beach – you’ll find a patch reef with hard and soft corals and colorful fish.
