I spent the day at the Caneel Bay Beach Club at Honeymoon Beach yesterday, and it was lovely. The staff was great, as were the services which included chair rentals, restrooms, and a full bar. (Cheers to that on my day off!) There are two ways to get to Honeymoon Beach these days. You can either hike in via the Lind Point Trail or take a taxi through Caneel. The taxi costs $6 per person, per way for guests ages 13 and up. We opted to take the taxi, and while doing so, I recorded what the ride looked like for all of you. This is currently the only way that you can check out the now-defunct Caneel Bay Resort from the inside.
As you will see in the video below, Caneel Bay Resort has remained relatively untouched since 2017. Its future is in limbo due to a pending federal court case. The next hearing for that case is Wednesday. I will let you know if anything new develops.
