We went here and this is a very kick back beach to just hang out on with the locals. Make sure you check out Hull Bay Hideaway (good sushi)

Have been spending a lot of time down in Hull Bay recently. The Hideaway is looking great! Good food, good people, good music! Check it out!! Beach is dog friendly. The restaurant is great for kids, lots of open space.

Traveled there to chill and relax. What a great beach! We had planned a snorkel adventure there, but because of storms, couldnt make it in the water. Just being there to walk the beach and take in sights was worth it. I'll book again with St Thomas Snorkel and Scuba!

This beach might disappoint if you're trying to spend equal time here and Magen's. This beach is a bit rocky but there are places to swim. It has a much more local vibe. It irked my wife at first because we left Magens and this place isn't as nice, but it's just a different type of beach. The beach has... More

We just returned from St. Thomas and had a wonderful day at Hull Beach. There was one other family with us on the beach and only a few locals. Fish tacos and beer available at an open air restaurant steps off the beach. Very relaxing and we saw several turtles as we snorkeled. No a large beach, but if you... More

great beach for close to shore snorkeling (for older kids) but not for swimming. very rocky and drops off quick, highly recommend water shoes. docks many boats in water here. sand is very HOT but shade available at trees close by. limited parking but free - very quiet. not really family friendly compared to Magen's bay. bar/restaurant is there.

My husband and I have been to the Caribbean about a dozen times now and we always make a point of going to the Hull Bay Hideaway. It is off the tourist's path and has a laid back, "positive vibration" (in island speak)! This is a spot where you can spend a gorgeous day on the beach under the palms... More

Did a snorkel tour and this was the last stop. Not too bad of a current, a bit colder cause it is the Atlantic side. Saw many sealife and coral. Enjoyed also the small beach and sea glass !

I visited Hull Bay today and it is certainly a dog-friendly beach, but if that's not what you've come for, then skip this one. The bar and restaurant are great, and it's not high traffic, so that might be a reason to stop by too. This beach had lots of trash on it on this particular visit. If you want... More
