Caneel Bay, St Johns Virgin Islands
Once a favored getaway for Laurance Rockefeller and family, this 170-acre island paradise is tucked within the Virgin Islands National Park, a protection made possible by Rockefellar’s land donation to the government in 1956.
You'll come and go via a scenic ferry ride. During your stay, family travelers can hike park trails and swim, snorkel, dive, kayak and sail in the pristine waters of the resort’s bays and inlets.
Youngsters can enjoy a complimentary kids club experience while parents opt for tennis, relaxation on one of seven beaches or a massage in an open-air cabana. (Cary provided one of the best massages ever!) Local dive, kayak and naturalist tours are also available.
Plein aire art classes are also available for the creatively inclined.
