Great beach

This was a nice out of the way place. The beach was fantastic, not good for snorkeling though, very cloudy and nothing to see.

Beach at Chenay Bay is wonderful. We go most every year, but this year we went toward the more secluded part away from the cottages and had some great snorkeling. Saw my first turtle among many other underwater miracles.

Chenay Bay was one of our top two favorite beaches on the island of St. Croix. Was not over-crowded but you will probably not have the beach to yourself, as it is a popular spot due to the amenities. Felt safe and did not worry about parking Jeep there. Great spot to kayak and rent SUP boards.

Our family of five visited this beach to swim and snorkel. We parked at the resort and walked a ways down the beach. Once away from the resort area, you could tell the other visitors were locals. There were families with their dogs hanging out as well as a youth camp group. Even with the large group of kids, this... More

We went to this beach 2 times when we were on the island. Both times we went there were maybe 10 other people there, so it is very quiet and uncrowded. The water is beautiful and warm and the sand is nice. We definitely recommend a visit to this beach.

The water was very shallow for a long way out. There was a lot of sea grass, so I was glad I had water shoes. I did go out on the far right side of the beach to the point, and enjoyed some nice snorkeling.

We stayed at the hotel there and we were at the beach many times. It is not crowded and the restaurant and rental place is right there. Just note, that it is a more rocky beach.

We watched sea turtles and played with the many hermit crabs. There are chairs, a dock for pictures and a place to get a drink.

This is a nice beach away from the crowds. Also, quite safe. Restaurant and bar are available. Hotel guests and locals share the water. Have been going here for years.
