Honeymoon beach on water island used to be a lovely small, quiet cove. You can get there via the ferry at crown bay marina and there are two great food truck bistros with good food (the new lion fish at Dingys and the sweet sausage sandwich from Heidi's are my favorite). The crowd, for the most part used to be... More

If you are visiting STT and have a boat or you can take the day ferry over to Water Island- just a small quaint beach - not crowded- no fast food - no shops- pack a lunch and take a cooler- sometimes a food vendor/ bar cart is open- best to go prepared- just a relax day! We used to... More

My husband and I visit Water Island, at least, once a year! If you're looking for a getaway, this is it! Water Island is a small residential Island right in the harbor of St. Thomas. There is one pizza place that's only open on weekends (unless you ask the owner to open for something special), golf carts and bikes are... More

Take the ferry over and hike up the hill to the old fort. The view is amazing. Absolutely take flashlights if you plan to go inside the tunnels and be careful! Then hike down to the beach and enjoy rockin' food and drinks at Heidi's. Swim out to the circle raft and hold it as your kids jump off. Help... More

If you dont arrive by boat, the ferry to WI will allow you to access Honeymoon beach.. and it is aptly named. Quiet and serene with beautiful warm, calm water and lots of space to just chill. If you need more- Heidi's and Dinghy's are at your service. Gets a little noisy around lunch time when the day trips visit... More

Go to Crown Marina and park in one of the gravel lots just inside the gate. Pickup a parking pass from the marina office and place it in the windshield of your car ($5). Take the ferry next to the Resturant ($10 round trip). Rent a golf cart ($40) or walk up the hill, turn left, and take the next... More

I've visited STT several time and never ventured to Water Island. We rented golf carts and did a private tour. It was a lot of fun and a great way to explore the terrain.
