Surrounded by seven pristine beaches, Caneel Bay Resort is the ultimate island escape set on its own private peninsula amid 170-acres in Virgin Islands National Park. Circling the peninsula, Caneel Bay features seven secluded beaches: Honeymoon Beach, Caneel Beach, Little Caneel Beach, Paradise Beach, Scott Beach, Turtle Bay Beach and Hawksnest Beach.
Discovered by Laurance S. Rockefeller in 1952, the resort is delightfully tech-free: there are no phones or televisions in the guest rooms, so guests can completely disconnect from the outside world.
Spend your days snorkeling in the company of starfish, sea turtles, and stingrays, or enjoy watching donkeys, deer, mongoose, and iguanas roam the property. For those looking for a bit of adventure, Virgin Island Ecotours can arrange for snorkel, kayak, and hiking expeditions. Guests can also charter boats for deep sea fishing, or set out to explore colorful sea life by scuba diving with a PADI pro.
To soothe sore muscles from a day of activity or to simply knead out those neck knots, indulge in a massage in one of Caneel Bay’s massage cabanas.
