Things to do:

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.

Beach Day

Cinnamon Bay offers a long gently sloping snow white beach to stick your toes in, or go for aCinnamon Bay Beach Photo by Dave Pinardi 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.
