St. John, US Virgin Islands
Francis Bay Beach faces West, this tends to make the water a bit calmer than other North shore beaches, as well as providing for nice sunset views. Francis Bay is a large beach and thus finding a nice quiet spot tends to be easier than some other beaches. There is also a lot to do with hiking, snorkeling, picnic tables and bar-b-que pits to be found nestled between the trees at the edge of the beach.
Snorkeling can have its rewards at Francis, there is an abundance of fish of all sizes shapes and colors and one is also likely to encounter sea turtles, southern stingrays, conch and trunkfish.
