We arrived to St John around 2PM and thought we wouldn't be hitting the beach anymore but decided to stop at the very closest beach right after leaving the Mongoose Junction... and it turned out to be Hawksnest Beach :)

What makes this location unique and perfect for afternoon (at least in October, since it's all about sun positioning in the afternoon) as the main portion of it by the parking lot is facing "east" rather than "west" like Trunk, Cinnamon or Maho to name a few - so you not only get shade from the bushes/trees behind you but also the colors of the water are still beautiful even later during the day - very welcome surprise

We chilled on the beach but a lot of people were snorkeling so you may want to bring your masks with you.

TIP: be careful around sunset as we got bitten be the no-see-ums (sand fleas that is) big time that first beach visit in St John :)

This was the best snorkeling spot we visited on Saint John. The coral here was amazing - purple, yellow, and in sizes and shapes we had never seen elsewhere on the planet!

Other good features are ample free parking, beautiful white sand, bathrooms (did not visit, but they were there), covered picnic tables, and not too crowded on the day we were there. We would certainly return!

Beautiful beach on a shoreline of spectacular beaches. Often overlooked the quiet and tucked away atmosphere of Hawksnest makes it a great visit if you have a short time out of Cruz Bay. The beach drops off pretty quick the beach is a little bit shorter than it’s counterparts further East, but still absolutely stunning.

Located in VI National Forest. Last clear water beach besides Honeymoon Beach (which stops entry at 3:30pm) before getting back to Cruz Bay ferry area. Small parking lot for free beach open until 6pm but no lifeguard or refreshments. Easily accessible restrooms & changing rooms, but no faucets to wash sand off belongings. Unfortunately the coral is bleaching in this area. Some pretty fish, urchins & crabs near the coral.

Although not one of the most popular beaches, this is still a beautiful beach with great snorkeling on both sides. We saw ton of sea urchins, fish, stingrays, and even squid. Although we didn't see any sea turtles when we were there others have seen them there. If you love spending time in the water and snorkeling, don't miss this beach.

Had a free morning after the rest of the family left so spent it at Hawksnest. The beach was great and surf was soothing. Found some shade at the edge and set up camp there. Lots of families but spread out so easy to enjoy my book and some time in the water. Parking was tight as the island is full but some street parking near the North end is easy to use and I find the best place on the beach.

We visited in Feb 2021. The current and waves were very strong, making it too sandy to see much for snorkeling. I am a very strong swimmer and the waves/current were so strong I did not feel comfortable out snorkeling alone though my family was on shore. My young children couldn’t play by the shore much at all as the waves were too strong. Definitely do not recommend for families with young children or for snorkeling.

By mid-afternoon, Hawksnest was jammed. The parking lot was full, and cars were lined up on the side of the road. We kept on driving. I’m sure the crowds are indicative of a pretty beach (I doubt that St. John has a bad one) but we prefer a more laid-back experience.
