Nestled in a beautiful national park, Caneel Bay is a pristine island getaway. Snorkel above teeming coral reefs or stroll along dazzling beaches fronded by lush tropical jungle.

Throw open the shutters of your private hideaway, and let the cool sea breeze drift through your room. Caneel Bay will entice you to explore nature with the same vigor that you'll be coaxing it indoors.

The gentle chatter of hummingbirds is a perfect alarm to prepare you for a day of exploration through abundant tropical forest. For the enthusiastic naturist, St. John is the perfect place to snorkel, dive, and photograph your way closer to turtles, iguanas, crabs, and even a wild donkey or two. Get more intimate with sea life on the organized sailing or scuba diving excursions in the 12 acres of preserved coral reef.

Set in the Virgin Islands National Park, Caneel Bay has been sensitively built to entwine with its natural setting. Find local wood and stone framing all corners of the open-air restaurants, wine room, and fitness center. The resort is free from TV and WiFi to enable guests to enjoy their vacation without the lure of home.
