Southwest of Coral Bay, the snorkeling at Little Lameshur Bay is known as a good sheltered beach for beginner snorkelers. Just off the beach, there is a small cluster of rocks in shallow water that is known to have plenty of grunts and snappers. When snorkeling to the east, you will be heading to Yawzi Point and the Great Lameshur Bay beyond. At the point, there is a variety of coral formations and diverse marine life.
To reach the Little Lameshur Bay snorkeling from Coral Bay, head southwest on SR107 to the Salt Pond parking area. Continue east on SR107 for 0.6 miles. Then continue east up the very rough, rocky 4WD dirt road for 0.6 miles to Great Lameshur Bay.
To reach the snorkeling on St John by air, you will need to first fly into the island of St Thomas using Cyril E. King Airport (STT). Then, you will need to take a taxi to one of the two docks with ferries heading over to St John.
Note: When snorkeling off St Johns USVI, be aware of potentially dangerous marine life including lionfish and sea urchins. Also, the coral reefs are in distress so be careful not to walk on or touch the coral.
Overall, Little Lameshur Bay is the 11th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 16 snorkeling dives in St John.
