You have to take a taxi to this beach, which is about 10 miles or so from the cruise port. DO NOT GET IN A TAXI WITH A BIG GROUP OF PEOPLE. We were basically shoved into one when we got off the ship that said they would take us to this beach but they totally lied and dropped us... More

Located just west of the airport along Brewers Bay Road (Hwy 30) in front of the University of the Virgin Islands, this quiet beach, popular with locals and students, is easy to reach by car, taxi or public transportation (simply take the bus to the University and get off at the end of the line).

On a cruise, jn St Thomas for a day. What to do?? Go to Brewer's Beach.... The beach is located close to the University, so has excellent public transport links. We left our cruise ship and strolled into Charlotte Amalie and then picked up a bus for the University. It costs one or two dollars each way and you can't... More

After spending a week on St. Thomas, I can honestly say I loved this beach!!! The water was so calm and crystal clear. It seems no matter when you visit, its NEVER crowded. Barely anyone goes here and the beach is very large so you have plenty of room to yourself! Keep an eye out while swimming as we saw... More

Visited this beach yesterday and it definitely was a locals beach and nice since it wasn't teeming with people. Easy snorkeling spot above the sea grass to see rays and turtles since the water was pretty calm even into the afternoon. There are trucks by the road selling food and drinks and bathrooms for changing. Decent prices and food. We... More

A great place to get away from the crowds. It is a locals beach and it felt like it. But we still had a great time at this beautiful place. We saw quite a few turtles, and even a sting ray hiding in the sand. The water was very calm. Not sure if it was due to the location of... More

Brewers Beach is fabulous. Yes there are locals but also visitors. It is looked after by the University of the Virgin Islands. It is clean and healthy. There are turtles grazing and one morning I saw dolphins playing there. Local fisherman catch frye in their small boats. It is such an unspoiled classic rural Caribbean Scene even though there are...

We happened upon the bay since the 30th Chili Cook off was hosted here. The water was clear and refreshing. There was plenty of shade from the trees and the restrooms and showers were clean and new.

OK, I may be a bit biased, having lived just above this beach for several years when employed at UVI, but on a recent trip “home,” Brewer’s Bay Beach still warmed my heart. You probably won’t find any tourists here. It is very much a “local’s” place. The water is typically calm and clear. The sand is spectacular and the... More
