“Another interesting ruin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

This was another of the many ruins on St John that are worth the stop. It only takes a few minutes to check these out. There are some interesting structures and you get a little idea of what it looked like "back in the day" :-)

“Added some culture to the day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

The Cinnamon Sugar Mill ruins are adjacent to the parking lot of Cinnamon Bay Beach. It's worth a few minutes to check out. There are also several options for hiking from a half mile and up starting at the old sugar mill plantation. A nice addition to a day at the beach.

“Sugar Mill Ruins”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Cinnamon Bay Sugar Mill ruins are across the street from Cinnamon Bay Beach and Campground.
Parking was limited because all the people visiting beach.
The ruins are easy accessed from the road. The ground is level and easy to walk around. They were the easiest ruins to get to of the 4 sugar mills we visited on St John.
Several building are well preserved and others are basically ruble. They were interesting to walk around. The ruins were not very well identified to what you are looking at. We had the book " Off the Beaten Track" which helped us better understand what we were viewing. The day we were there is was very crowded so we guess it is popular because of the easy access.

“Cinnamon Bay Sugar Mill Ruins”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

Travel along North Shore Road - and you'll come to the Cinnamon Bay Sugar Mill Ruins. Not much parking - you basically pull off on the right side of the road. The ruins are easy to get to - just a few yards into the woods. Not as impressive as Annaberg - but there's a beautiful chimney/stack of island stone, coral and brick.

Good spot to stop with the family and wander through a bit of island history.
