Not the most glamorous beach, close to the runway, check it out on a map. We stopped here after visiting Magens beach because I'd read about the possibility of seeing turtles. The beach is fine, has shower facilities and street side food vendors. The water is clear, further out near the buoys there is some sea grass, and I did... More

Not that I found this beach poor. But from other reviews, I thought this place would be magical. Everyone's opinions differ and I personally think I built it up in my mind. We arrived in the mid morning. There was no one there, we could've had the place to ourselves. However, I had read about several other beaches on the... More

Brewer's beach, across from the Reichhold Center at UVI, is still a truly unspoiled beach. If you're driving, from the east, go past the airport, through the university, up over the hill (where the street divides), down the hill and you're there. Park on the street. You can also reach it by safari - it's the end of the line,... More

Favorite bay in St. Thomas! No coral to snorkel but saw so many sea turtles while snorkeling this place is awesome!

We went on a sup adventure with our snorkel gear and saw at least five turtles. The water was clear and the beach was sandy with little rocks.

Went via a sailing charter. It was great! We were the only people on the beach. Great to walk with shoes on-collected sea glass.

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
