This sand and stone beach is only 5 minute walk or a short drive (you can park right next to the beach) from Great Expectations and offers some of the best snorkeling on St John. Hidden in the sea grasses you will often find turtles. Several guests of our St John villa, Great Expectations, have declared that the fish and turtles found in and around Chocolate Hole harbor provide for first class snorkeling.
Chocolate Hole harbor, because of its orientation, is usually very calm and therefore a great place to paddle board. Parents of young children will also find this a great spot to teach kids to enjoy the calm and clear waters of St John since there are very rarely waves at the water’s edge.
