Things to do:
Cinnamon Bay Nature Loop and Accessible Boardwalk
Meander through the ruins of the historic Cinnamon Bay Sugar Plantation. Smell the scent of the leaves from the bay rum trees , which were once used to make the famous St John Bay Rum Cologne. The boardwalk and nature loop are located across the road from the entrance to the Cinnamon Bay Resort and Campground. The nature loop is an easy 0.5 mile hike.
Visit Cinnamon Bay Education Center and learn about the history of St. John. The archaeological exhibits surround the laboratory within a preserved 17th century structure. The exhibits chronicle the island's heritage as uncovered in the archaeological record. Read about the 1733 slave revolt and the take-over of the islands, Post-Emancipation, maritime history and more. Learn more by talking with the archeologists while they work in the lab.
Cinnamon Bay offers a long gently sloping snow white beach to stick your toes in, or go for a leisurely stroll. The crystal clear waters provide many delights for even a novice snorkeler. Turtles and fish of all sizes and colors can be seen here. Near the Cinnamon Bay Cay there is an underwater fish holding pen probably made by the Taino or their ancestors. There is even a submerged historic village and a sunken plane from 1940s to see. Spend a couple of hours trying to find them. You can find clues for where to look in the Cinnamon Bay Heritage Center and Archaeology Lab.
