The offshore waters are part of preserved National Monument. Into watersports? We have amazing scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. Take the underwater snorkeling trail at world famous Trunk Bay. You can rent boats and other gear right off the beach at Caneel Bay and Cinnamon Bay. And if you like snorkeling you have to check out the sea turtles around Water Lemon Key.
View and experience plantation life. The National Park has preserved several sugar mill ruins. Check out Annaberg, a series of sugar mill/rum distillery ruins with gorgeous views. The National Park has also preserved St. John's hiking trails. You can sign up for guided walks or go on your own adventures.
We also have some fun stores, all privately owned. We have one shopping "mall" called Mongoose Junction. Plus tons of cute shops scattered throughout our two towns, Cruz Bay and Coral Bay. We also have some truly amazing restaurants, some of the best fine dining in the Caribbean.
Each bedroom has its own unique theme, its own porch or balcony, and its own stunning view. Open the windows and enjoy the Caribbean breeze or each room also has its own air conditioner. AcquaBlu also has WiFi in all of the rooms including the pool deck!
You won't need to go far to have some island adventure. Acquablu is surrounded by tropical gardens including two beautiful garden paths. There is a three-minute walking trail from the villa down to the rocky shore. Along the way keep a look out for iguanas, hermit crabs, skinks, and hummingbirds. There is also a ten-minute walk down to the Boatman Point Private Beach, perfect for shell collecting, swimming, and pelican spotting. If you're feeling a little more adventurous hike down into Chocolate Hole and explore Hart Bay, great for surfing, snorkeling, and some of the island's best shell collecting.
Acquablu also offers some amazing island fun for grownups: the Blu Cellar. We hand select and import wines from Italy and put them in our new wine cellar. The cellar has a wide selection, moderately priced bottles to special occasion bottles. Each bottle is marked with a sticker and there's a book of descriptions for each wine. Take whichever bottle you like, leave the sticker, and we'll send you a bill.
