Holiday Travel Guide
Cinnamon Bay which includes a beach

See interesting fish and coral as you snorkel in the pristine waters off this beautiful bay, which is also home to plantation ruins that shed light on St. John’s past.

Cinnamon Bay is a picturesque coastal stretch known for its excellent snorkeling conditions. A former Danish plantation that now serves as an open-air museum adds history and intrigue to this scenic part of the world. Explore the trails of this tropical coastline for a glimpse of its sprawling beauty.

Enjoy the sunny, hot weather with a trip to Cinnamon Bay Beach, which has amenities such as showers and restrooms. Browse the souvenirs and beach equipment in the shops. Sip drinks and purchase food from the snack bar and the restaurant. Rent paddle boats to take out on the sea with your family.

Cool down with a dip in the sea and relax in the shade of a swaying palm tree. Go snorkeling in the clear water to spot a range of colorful fish and coral. Occasional strong winds make for excellent sailing and windsurfing conditions. Capture photos of the idyllic scenery: white sand, green hills and crystal-clear water.

Visit the Cinnamon Bay Plantation to see the 18th-century buildings of this historic site. Inspect the ruins of the horse mill, the boiling house and other rooms involved in the processing of sugar cane. Hear of the revolt of the slaves in 1733 and how certain slaves tried to ward off the rebels long enough for the plantation owners to escape. Many of the buildings and fields were burned.

Stay the night at the Cinnamon Bay Campground, which is the only camping site in the Virgin Islands National Park. Choose from cottages, tents and open-air lodgings. The site contains a shop and a restaurant. Rent kayaks and snorkeling gear from the waterfront store.

Cinnamon Bay is on the northern coast of the island of St. John. To reach St. John from Cyril E. King International Airport on St. Thomas, take the safari bus to the port, where a ferry will take you to St. John. While on the island, explore other areas such as Trunk Bay, where this is more excellent snorkeling conditions, and Maho Bay, a great spot to see sea turtles.
