Little Cruz Bay
The first beach that you see when the ferry pulls into Cruz Bay is little Cruz Bay on the right and the left of the dock. Little Cruz Bay is lined by palm trees and is a lovely spot to stop and sit while waiting for the ferry or to take a break while walking around Cruz Bay. The water is clear and inviting, however there are always boats anchored in the water. Shops and restaurants line one side of Little Cruz Bay and the taxi stand lines the other. Little Cruz Bay is one of the busiest little beaches on St. John.
Little Cruz Bay is a busy area. Not a place where you'd plan to go for a 'beach day'. You can rent a dinghy here from Noah's Little Arks or hang out at the Beach Bar, etc. There are always lots of boats along the shore line - rental boats, etc. The 'people ferry' docks here. It's a fun place to watch people coming and going. Our son likes to splash around in the water there while we grab lunch/drinks at the Beach Bar occasionally.
