Water island is only an 8 min. ferry ride from Crown Bay. Best time to go is a non cruise ship day. Very relaxing. Rent a golf cart and do some exploring.

I went to party there at a house. Apparently, it is tradition new residents to party there in order to become an islander.

Great food a Dingys as well as many activities! The snorkeling was super as we got to see a great variety of ocean life.

The ferry is inexpensive and we rented a golf cart for the day from Kelly's carts. Made it easy to explore . Some history with old WWll gun placements and 360 degree views. Can walk down a path to Limestone beach which is an interesting place. Very private and pretty. Probably good snorkeling there but it was too rough the... More

The beach is peaceful and beautiful. Easy walk from the pier. We didn't tour much but did love the book sharing at the post office and the info on the plaque about the island history. Ferry is easy access at the marina by Tickles restaurant. No fee for the island but there is one for the ferry.

The morning trip was OK to Water Island. We expected more activities and sites to visit. We did find the bunker's history interesting. It is a shame that litter and trash was strewn in the bunker. Food was OK but service was good.

My wife and I did a bike ride the island. Several nice views looking 360 degrees and of Crown Bay St. Thomas. Not much on this island except Honeymoon Beach which was lots of fun.. Don't do this on the first trip to St. Thomas. Plenty of other places with more adventure and fun to experience.

Perfect beach bar... Gorgeous views, great music. Good drinks.... Dinghys on Water Island rejuvenated the spirit, soothes the soul.

Went to Water Island, Honeymoon Beach and Dinghy's Bar and Grill twice during our trip. After going the first time we decided we had to close out our trip there and return the morning of our flight out. It's very accessible if you are on that side of St. Thomas and Honeymoon Beach is a quick hop over the hill... More
