Well folks, we have great news to share with you all today. A landowner on the East End has opened up his property to the public, so we now have a new beach that we can all enjoy! And even better, he’s renting out kayaks and paddle boards, giving everyone a new way to visit the popular Lime Out floating taco bar!
We were taking guests out to the East End on a News of St. John Island Tour the other day, and were excited to see numerous lounge chairs and umbrellas set up on a skinny stretch of sand just past the Hansen Bay beach property. We chatted with the owner Ash, and he said he is now offering free parking to all guests who would like to enjoy his beach and rent water sports equipment.
The company is called Ashville Watersports and it’s located at Saltwell Bottom beach, which Ash told us is the name of the estate it sits on. Ash offers glass bottom kayaks for $25 an hour and paddle board for just $20 an hour. The paddle to Lime Out is a relatively short one from Ash’s beach. Check out a few pics…
Looks great, doesn’t it??!
As we mentioned above, Ashville Watersports is located on the skinny stretch of roadway on the East End past the Hansen Bay beach property. The ladies over at Hansen Bay beach also rent kayaks and paddle boards. They charge $3 per person to park and $30 for 80 minute rentals for both kayaks and paddle boards.
I’m not sure about all of you, but I love and appreciate how landowners are opening up their properties for all of us to enjoy. Have a great day everyone… Now go and plan your next St. John vacation!
