Question about Scott Beach and Denis Bay?

Are these open to the public and can you rent the beach service at Scott? I know it's part of Caneel but just wondering if you can day trip there? Also, Denis Bay, not sure if the beach goes but a separate name or not, but it looks beautiful. Is it accessible and open to the public? Is there a place to park and hike in? Thank you....

Scott Beach is part of Caneel. Historically you could day trip there, but not rent the services. There are so many beautiful beaches on St John.

You are able to get to Denis Bay by taking a spur trail from the Trail at Peace Hill. It is not a NPS trail, but we found it to be well traveled last April. It takes you down to a small beach with sand, large rocks, and a nice swimming area to the right.

You can access Scott from the water, Caneel restricts access by land

Denis is accessed by an unmarked trail at the start of the trail to Peace hill. The Denis Bay trail is on the right as you start up to Peace Hill. Look for a break in the trees. It can be a bit of a rough trail at spots and sometimes you may need to sit or hold on to tree limbs to make it. Bring water. The beach is like no other on St. John. It is worth it IMO.

To answer your question about parking, there are several parking spots at the base of the peace hill trail. So, yes, you can park and hike. We really enjoyed this beach and plan to return on our next trip.
