St. John USVI Beaches: Lameshur Bay

Excerpted from St. John Beach Guide © 2006 Gerald Singer


Like the beach at Salt Pond Bay, Lameshur is an excellent alternative to north shore beaches, especially on days when winter swells may make swimming and snorkeling on the north uncomfortable. Lameshur is further away and harder to drive to than Salt Pond, involving a difficult and steep section of road, but unlike Salt Pond, the beach is conveniently located right next to the parking area. Lameshur is also a perfect place to take a refreshing dip in the sea after exploring the nearby ruins or taking a hike on the Lameshur Bay or Bordeaux Mountain Trail.

Lameshur Bay

Getting There
At the end of Route 107 traveling south, continue one mile on the dirt road. You can park anywhere along the road in the vicinity of the beach.

Facilities
Facilities are limited to picnic tables, barbecues and chemical toilets.

Snorkeling
Beginners can snorkel around the rocks just off the beach. On calm days, the east side of the bay leading towards Europa offers more advanced snorkelers steep cliffs and canyons often teaming with fish. Lameshur Bay is also the gateway to the Yawzi Point, a favorite snorkel.
