We hear that later morning and early afternoons can get quite busy with boats bringing guests over for excursions, so if you’re on St John during high season and want to avoid the crowds, you might try to spend time on Honeymoon Beach earlier in the a.m. or later in the afternoon.

    Is the Honeymoon Hut kind of new? I don’t seem to remember it.

    • Olivia, from what I hear, V.I. Eco Tours and Caneel Bay recently refurbished a 30 year-old building on Honeymoon Beach and turned it into a sports center/beginning point for the eco-tours.
