Caneel Bay
Caneel Bay invites you to 'disconnect' in pristine natural surroundings and low-key luxury. The exclusive resort, nestled within the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, remains faithful to the vision of founder Laurance Rockefeller and his reverence for the environment. Seven secluded white sand beaches border 170 lush acres where Caneel's accommodations have been artfully built to blend into the landscape. A true escape, the resort remains purposefully absent of modern glitz, digital distractions and the furious pace of the world at home. With 3/5 of the island preserved under the national park system, the island remains the least commercial and low key of the three USVI islands. This tiny island is only accessible by boat or ferry. Its beaches are considered to be some of the best in the world, white sandy beaches shaded by seagrape trees and coconut palms. Surrounded by crystal blue-green waters teeming with coral reef life, St. John is home to tropical forests, relics from the Pre-Colombian Amerindian civilization and remains of Danish colonial sugar plantations.
