Cold shower on Cinnamon Bay Campground?

We are going to staying on the Cinnamon Bay Tent/Cottage for 5 nights and they only have cold shower. Does anyone know if we can find hot shower somewhere? We are only planing to bring carry on, the instant hot shower system will probably won't fit it in.

Is the water on the campground very cold? I prefer to take hot shower even in summer.

I would be very surprised if you could find a hot shower at any public beach. Luke warm water is pretty much all your going to find. Water is highly valued on STJ because of the lack of storage/source so be prepared.

Trust me, you won't care about the temperature of the water so much, you may actually be grateful for it. The water is not ice cold. But, to be honest, I don't find the showers there convenient because you have to hold the handle down with one hand to get the water to flow. Its all for a good cause to conserve water but when I've been there as a day visitor and used the showers after a swim, I have found it a bit annoying. But I haven't been in about 2 years so maybe they are different now?

We used to stay at Maho all the night - Actually, the showers were quite refreshing - It wasn't shocking cold like I thought it might be - I don't think you need to worry :)

My recollection of Cinnamon Bay showers... you have incentive to make it fast. That's how cold they were.

Someone suggested bringing a shower bag and filling it early in the day then using the sun warmed water to shower in.

That's why I prefer VIERS to Cinnamon. They have solar heated showers and if there aren't many guests, there's plenty of hot water. It's more remote, though.

When we stayed at Maho, we always brought a solar shower bag with us. You fill it with camp water and hang it in the sun all day. Believe it or not, the temp is almost too hot when you get back from the beach.

The solar shower bags are excellent -- they will get really hot if you lay them out in the sun for just afew hours - they lay flat in your luggage - and you could probably sell them at the Campground before you leave.

I am with my dancing friends from Vermont. You're not going to have much of an experience but to get in and out. The shower bags sound like an excellent idea, laying flat in the carry on, as long as lugging 40 pounds over to the showers is not a problem. I don't think I have ever seen one at Cinnamon Bay before. If you are desperate for a warm shower you could probably pay a fee to be a day visitor at the Westin, or take a timeshare tour, and use the ones in the workout center. When we get back from our days at the beaches my son and I have taken to using those and letting my wife have the bathroom in our room or villa.
