Some of the amenities at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina~
So many options as you plan your day. Go for a swim, nap on the sand under a tree or in the shun, snorkel right off the beach, volleyball, para-sailing, rent a Wave Runner, go for a PADI dive, snorkeling tour, or a deep sea fishing charter from the Sapphire Marina just steps away...the day is yours to relax and enjoy as you wish in the warm Caribbean sun! Then, you may want to wind down with a nice relaxing sunset cruise. Be sure to check out the marina we have so much to offer!!
We also have gorgeous multi-level cascading freshwater pool which is surrounded by the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Grab a book and relax while watching the tranquil blue waters lap up on the shore surrounding the sparkling clear pool. Or sit back and relax while watching the boats coming in and out of the marina.
Currently at Sapphire, the “Banana Cabana” -located between B and C buildings-offers food, soda and frozen drinks, and the Sapphire Grill offers lunch and dinner -a short walk up the hill past the marina and 'F' building. Both places also provide beach service, so you don’t even need to get out of your chair.
If you’re really tired after the day Senor Pizza is a phone call away and will deliver right to your room. Menus for other local restaurants are also located inside an information booklet inside the condo.
If you're in the mood to explore~ The Virgin Islands National Park on St John is easily accessible by ferry from Red Hook. Catch a cab at Cruz Bay dock and go explore the park, soak in the beauty of Trunk Bay, Caneel Bay, Cinnamon Bay or hike any one of the 22 trails. You may want to check out the ruins of Annaberg Plantation where they produced sugar, molasses and rum. Participate in a demonstration on basket weaving or bread baking. The ruins are fairly extensive and well preserved.
So bring your bikinis and flip flops and be ready to relax and unwind in the beautiful Caribbean sun!
