Paradise is the smallest of Caneel's 7 beaches. Scott is very large, and in my opinion, much more beautiful. As I recall, Paradise is closest to Cottage #7 and premium ocean view. Both are on a hill and give lovely views, and close but not directly on the beach. Premium beach fronts are directly on Scott Beach. I know people who love both. It is strictly a matter of preference, view and close to the beach, or directly on the beach.

Actually, in August, the best beach spot, IMO, is Hawksnest, because of the shade and trade wind breezes. There are many comments about rooms/beaches on the recent thread called "Just booked Caneel."

Thanks Dianebridles and xkenx for info. I will go back and see if I can find that thread. Didn't realize Scot beach is so much bigger, this helps, will now consider Hawksnest as we may have that area as an option !

Hawksnest will be the least expensive of the 3. Have never been to Caneel in mid-summer, but I suspect it won't be busy. Even in high season, it never feels overly crowded.
