Francis Bay

Visit Francis Bay and you will find yourself on one of St. John's longest beaches. This beautiful beach has calm waters and a lovely, sandy shore. Often sparsely populated on weekdays its easy to find a nice quiet spot. Picnic tables are available. The Francis Bay Trail runs along a salt pond and offers great bird watching. There is good snorkeling for beginners along the western end of the beach towards Maho Bay. For strong swimmers, enter the water from the rocky section of other end of the beach. Halfway out from the bay's point begins a varied, narrow reef. For those with a kayak, Whistling Cay, adjacent to the bay, offers very good snorkeling.

This is the best, quaint, beach that St. John hasto offer. Swim around schools of fish, even in the shallow end. This beach is not only calm, but FANTASTIC! Definitly try this beach if you can.
