Pia, a frequent contributor to the Virgin-Islands-On-Line forum, posted a picture of the sign which announces Caneel's new parking policy.
If you spend $10 in the wonderful beach side bar, you get the parking fee back as a credit. And I dare anyone to be at the Caneel bar and not spend $10. Lunch there is a highlight of every trip to the island.
The fee doesn't seem to be bothering many folks. CypressGirl from Houston commented, "I don't have a problem with that charge at all. For non-guests, that seems fair. At least I have a choice….I can walk, sweat, carry a ton of crap, get bug bites, and sweat some more…..or pay 10. No brainer to me."
