Caneel Bay - Facts and Information

Description

Caneel Bay was created in 1955 by Laurance Rockefeller. Tucked away on St. Johns of the US Virgin Islands, this secluded sanctuary is surrounded by lush tropical foliage and includes 7 immaculate beaches. Spanning over 170-acres, the Caneel Bay experience is as unique as it is beautiful.

The brilliant turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea wash over the dazzling white sands of the pristine beaches found at Caneel Bay. Each with their own allure and personality, like the uninhabited Honeymoon Beach or Hawksnest also known as the "Wild Beach," however you choose to relax by the sea you can find it here. Let the rolling surf, picturesque views and gentle sea breezes lull into complete tropical relaxation.
