Hidden treasure

At the far west end past the airport, more of a local spot, quiet, clear water and snorkle with green turtles and stingrays.

This is a great beach to go to for peace and quiet. It has never had more than 10 people at any one time that we have been there. Gret sea glass and snorkeling. Sea turtles and sting rays. It is right near the airport which may be the reason there are few people there but it is one of... More

after being to Magens bay and a couple of other beaches in St Thomas I can say that this is the best one for those who love quiet non-touristic spots with clear water and minimum of tourism related services. Just a short walk from a local bus stop and you are at the nice local beach with very convenient water... More

This was our second time stopping in St Thomas and we were just looking to go to a beach. From reviews I had chosen Lindquist Beach, but we were too cheap to take 6 of us in a taxi ($35) so we took the local bus for $1 each. We ended up at Brewer's Bay instead, but it was great.... More

Brewers is on the south, or Caribbean side so it's warmer than east side and north side. There is abundant, natural shade along most of the beach, good, bathrooms ... Parking can be an issue.. No lot, on street curb. Found some sea glass along shore, snorkeling is minimal. No beach chair or umbrella rentals. Maintained by the University, so... More

We went here to avoid the crowds awry Magens, and it was a lovely spot. A few locals and that's it. If you're looking for tourisT amenities, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a gorgeous, quiet beach, go for it. You saw the planes coming into the airport which was kind of fun but not... More

This is a nice beach close to the airport and a place where a lot of locals go. I saw huge star fish, turtles and other sea life here.

This beach is down by the University. its nice in that its rarely packed but the parking is on the street, there are many locals around which makes one feel like they have to keep their eyes on their valuables. We chose to just venture there with towels. The water is clear and calm like all the other bays but... More

Pros: Free, calm, natural, beautiful, close from town/airport/cruiseship port. Cons: Very close from airport Wow! What a beautiful small beach! I feel bad reviewing this beach, I wouldn't want it to become too popular which would ruin it for the locals. Walkable from the cruise ship port, 7km (a bit more than 4 miles), you walk westbound through the streets... More

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
