This is the way to go if you’re traveling to Water Island! You can rent a golf cart for $50 from 10 to 6! Kelly will meet your right when you exit the ferry and she will walk you through the island via a map and off you go! It was so convenient!

We visited Water Island when our Disney cruise was in St. Thomas for the day. Very easy to take a taxi to the ferry, and the cost of both for 8 people was what one of the Disney excursions would have cost for one of us. Honeymoon Beach is a short walk from the ferry, and as you crest the... More

Water Island is a beautiful place to be. It very quiet and clean. The beach is beautiful. It looks like a forest almost. You can rent a golf cart and explore the beautiful island. It's very classy if you ask me.

The island is only accessible by ferry, $10 round trip from St Thomas. Fun ride over and back. Rented a golf cart Kelly's Karts, highly recommend if you want to check out the island. Otherwise it is too hilly to walk it. Ate at Heidi's and had drinks at Dinghy's beach bar, both were great. Beautiful beach! The fort was... More
