We just went there for the day, its a very short boat trip from St Thomas and the boats go every hour so quite frequently. You pay your ticket on the boat. We just went to spend time at honeymoon beach and its such a short walk (less than 10 minutes) from the dock that you really do not need... More

Here at water Island with close friends. We are all having a great time! The Dinghy's Bar and Grill is a nice place to enjoy a drink and some food. The staff are all helpful and welcoming! A definite beautiful escape here...

Wanting to get away from the big cruise crowd (we were on one of the ships) for the day, we took the short ferry ride over to Water Island for some quiet island time. We decided to not get a golf cart, and made the short walk to Honeymoon Beach in no time. As it was early, we found a... More

This beach is a place to really make you feel like your in the caribbean. Although there are a few small shack like buidings renting kayaks and selling food, it doesn't take away from the shear beauty of the natural growing vegetation and surroundings.

This was fun, we rented golf carts to tour and ride around the island. Talked to some locals and got some history of the island. There is not a lot to do on the island. Very quiet, and the people that live there like it that way. But rent the golf carts and see the island... You'll be glad you... More

If it is a busy day in St. Thomas and there are 8 enormous cruise ships docked in the harbor DO NOT follow the masses to Megan's Bay etc. or you will be crawling around like ants with the other 5,000 people there. My suggestion is to go to Crown Bay Marina and take the ferry to Water Island. Getting... More
