Our visit to Water Island last year was invaded by small hoards of "tiki" filled booze-themed barges. The people from these boats poured off the vessels and scampered on shore with their loud music, voices, and cruise-ship towels. The population of the beach went suddenly from 20 people to 200. Although these boats stayed only a couple of hours, when... More

Amazing Fish Taco. Worth the trip for that reason alone. Beach is ok. Driving around on golf cart was cool. WWII bunker was cool.

You either need your own dinghy, boat or travel by ferry. Once there you need friends/family with a vehicle or golf cart to get around unless you have a bicycle or like to walk. Not many amenities (i.e. groceries) There are a few eateries at Honeymoon Beach. Lovely, and quiet.

Water Island was great for our little day trip. We spent all our time at Dinghy’s on the beach, hung out with locals, made new friends! Dinghy’s gave us complimentary transportation to and from the ferry dock ($10 round trip) and it may have been our favorite day on the island, and the cheapest!

Amazing little island a 10 minute water cab ride away from Charlotte Amalie West in the USVI. Beach accessible by short walk, golf cart, or back of a pick up! Great little beach bar and even Monday night movies on the beach. Our favorite family outing on our recent vacation to the VI!

Water Island and it's Honeymoon Beach on Druif Bay is a great place to catch a cold one....enjoy a rum drink....swim....snorkel....or just hang at the beach. The view from the beach looks out at boats in the bay, dolphin island and even Culebra PR.

Honeymoon Beach on Water Island is awesome ... it took a bit of effort to get there (we should have taxied to the ferry ... instead we walked ...it was a long walk from town). We loved the beach as well as the 2 small bars on the beach ... what atmosphere!!!
