Coakley Bay is a beautiful white sand beach that is often sparsely populated. The water has a good bit of sea grass in it so often the shoreline will be littered with sea grass. The beach offers views of Buck Island. Coakley Bay offers very good snorkeling. The ocean floor bottom is rocky in some places and these areas are strewn with sea urchins, so beware. Although there are no palm trees on the beach, shade can be found under the sea grape trees. Accessible by a dirt road; a small sign that reads 'Nature Preserve of St. Croix Environmental Association' marks the turn in for the road.

The road to Coackley  Bay is atrocious,  it is a public beach, and so many people could enjoy it, if the road was taken care of.  There  are two very big water holes that prevent you from going in, and as a matter of fact, we saw a lady in distress today, because she was stuck in the middle of the second hole, with mud up to her passenger side door. A wrecker was called to get her out. My understanding, this isn’t the first time it has happened, in the same spot!  Beach association, please  do something about this! Let the area be used as it should be! What if this woman would have had children with her. Do something, it is an easy fix!
