Owner description: Located on St. Croix's north shore, the waters are not always gentle along this palm-tree-lined beach, but scuba diving and snorkeling are very popular here where less than 200 yards out is the drop-off called Cane Bay Wall.

We went just off season and there were less than a dozen people there. Very limited for facilities in the off season but a place did open with food and beverages, Water was calm and there is a wooden carousel which is marked by a buoy for divers. Was told the water drops to 13,000 feet. Snorkeling was good with lots of fish and coral.

Sam and I did 11 dives with the group at Cane bay. They were superb! Rick, Patrick, Nick, Nick, Chris and Michelle are top notch. They even attended our wedding on the beach in front of the shop. They were elated and couldn't do enough to make our honeymoon and wedding exceptionally special. The dives were really superb. The reef is in excellent condition, lots of juveniles and plenty of things to see from sharks to juvenile trunk fish. Just good people. And let's not forget Hal and Suzanne... they set the tone for their happy employees. Thank you to all!! we will return!

Great beach for hanging out and for snorkeling.

We parked in the parking lot across the street for the dive shop and @Eat. Not sure if we were supposed to, but we only stayed a couple of hours and picked up a few things at the dive shop.

Beach itself was ok. Sand was soft enough and there were a few trees for shade. Some chairs were stacked by beach bar/restaurant but nobody was around to talk to about using/renting them.

The beach seemed nice for relaxing/swimming (though I've read other mentions of sea urchins - didn't see any myself until we were aways from shore snorkeling).

Snorkeling was great though! Be sure to enter/exit in the middle (at the dock like thing). Swim straight out until you get to the buoys and then swim parallel to the beach between them. It looks like a long swim, but with fins it only took 10-15 mins and was very easy. Snorkeling was great - saw a lot of interesting fish and a turtle. Gets a bit deep by the time you make it out to the buoys. There were quite a few divers out there.

If you want a great spot to snorkel, this beach is for you. Make sure to bring water shoes since there are rocky spots and sea urchins not too far off of shore. Make sure to go across the street to eat@canebay for some delicious food and drinks!
