We were spending a week in St. Thomas at Point Pleasant Resort April 2-9, 2014 and we met a lady on the Safari bus that lived on Water Island. So we planned a day there. We took the Ferry there in the morning (only a 10 minute ride) $10 round trip, and rented a golf cart for the day from... More

Water Island is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of St. Thomas. take the ferry over and rent a golf cart (Kelly's Karts was the best) and go explore the island! You must stop at Dingy's Beach Bar, have drinks and go to the beach! The atmosphere is wonderful and who doesn't like a bar/restaurant right on the... More

No charge for beach chairs at Dingy Beach,however chairs were dirty, man with his dog-- tossing a frisbee a good part of the afternoon, a large group of gals celebrating a bachelorette party... More

Water island is a small island off St. Thomas. Can only get there by ferry out of Crown Bay Marina. $10 round trip. Nice little beach with drinks and food available. Usually not crowded unless the cruise ship excursions are there, but they're usually only there for an hour or two. Good little get away and a good place for... More

grabbed a cab from the cruise port pier. Don't hurry as much as we did, as you are catching the 10:00 ferry from Crown Bay pier. We got here way too early. Like nine and had to wait and wait. So enjoy breakfast on the boat, grab a taxi for 8.00 pp to the Crown Bay Pier.10.00 return ferry ride... More

Take the ferry from Crown Bay to Water Island on Monday nights to see the free movies projected on a stretched out sail. We had such a great time. They have food and beverages on hand to add to your evening. Do not miss this attraction!

Just got back from two weeks on Water Island. Our condo was just off of Honeymoon Beach so we had easy access for snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. Honeymoon Beach was a snorkel or short drive away and a wonderful place to spend the day relaxing and watching the "day trippers" from the cruise ships that came in for a few... More

We rented golf carts and toured the island. Make sure you get to the ferry early if you are taking the 10:00 one. We got left behind and were told we would have to take the 11:00. Very disappointing. We got lucky and a local gave us a ride over in his dingy. The golf carts were fun and a... More

What a great day we had on Water Island, rent a golf cart and play, we toured the island, did the fort, and ended up spending the rest of the day on Honeymoon Beach relaxing. I could live here!
