Discover Waterlemon Cay
Waterlemon Cay is the most popular snorkeling spot on St John. And for good reason(s)! This picturesque location features four large sets of Danish-era plantation ruins, a mostly-flat hike and a cay ( small island ) surrounded by a rich marine ecosystem teaming with tropical fish, marine life like sea turtles, rays, dolphins and sharks ( mostly passive Nurse Sharks ).
Leinster Bay is a fantastic place to hike. The mostly-flat hike to Waterlemon Cay leads to several other hiking, sightseeing opportunities in this area.
There are several plantation-era ruins around Leinster Bay. The largest, and best preserved, is Annaberg Plantation. But there are also 3 lesser visited locations requiring a short hike.
