Caneel Bay St John

Caneel Bay Resort was founded by Laurance Rockefeller in the 50s and jump-started the use of the US Virgin Islands as tourist attractions. The buildings are low and built into the surroundings nicely.

The difference between this and most of the other places on St. John is that the resort is right on the beach and you don't have to travel to it, or sleep in a tent, like at Cinnamon Bay Campgrounds. That said, this beach is not as impressive as either Cinnamon Bay Beach or Trunk Bay Beach.
