One of the prettiest beaches on St John, which is accessible only by boat or by footpath, will be even more popular now that VI Ecotours has opened a concession base renting kayaks and paddle boards.

VI Ecotours, a popular St Thomas based watersports operator, has been operating a similar concession base at Caneel for nearly a decade. They have now taken a long abandoned structure right on Honeymoon Beach which they have renovated and will offer paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel equipment, and even underwater cameras and ice cream! Word is that they will also have flush toilets and use of lockers!
