This is a great beach, and if you want an intro to all the ocean blues in one swim, here you go! Scenic beyond belief! And not overrun by people . . .

Lovely beach on the east side of St.Thomas. Unfortunately this beautiful place is undergoing major changes - you need to pay parking in order to get in, there is construction going on...Who know what surmises await us in the near future. It used to be one of the nicest and most quiet places on the island - but not anymore.

This really IS paradise, the day we went it was very uncrowded, it is hard to find, like much of the usvi the signs are poor to non-existent .. But it is between Sugar Bay and Sapphire.... There is construction which will draw more tourists there and probably spoil the serenity. I hope it doesn't turn into another Coki -... More

Lindquist Beach also known as "Smith Bay Beach" is my favorite beach in St. Thomas. It is a hidden gem and very quiet. There are no amenities, but there are restaurants a short drive away. The beach is an excellent place to go swimming and look at tide pools. I saw small sea urchins, colorful fish, and snails in the... More

We hit all the major (and some minor) beaches in St. Thomas, and some in St. John, during our week-long stay at the Ritz on St. Thomas. Hands down, this is the best beach in St. Thomas. I would encourage everyone to go now because the beach is going through a construction project; locals complained that the government was ruining... More

This was our favorite beach not because it's the perfect sand or it has a great beach bar but because it looks like a natural pristine beach that I can imagine St Thomas was 25 years ago. They are in the process of building so it looks like a construction site but the water is awesome, there were only a... More

This is one of the few beaches left that have a natural setting, no restaurants, rentals, or building cluttering the beauty. The water was beautiful, the sand was nice and the view were great. Loved spending the afternoon there-- will definitely go back next time we are in St. Thomas.

Parking cost 2$ per person. Beach is nice and little to no people there, especially in the morning. I would recommend it couple who want to be alone on the beach at the early hours or for people who like to stay away from the crowds.

Lindquist is the best beach on the island!!! The cruise ships have not started to drop people off here yet, so it is usually pretty mellow and not crowded!!!! I have seen many weddings on any given day of the week, water is beautiful and it is just so peaceful!!! Construction has started so who knows what will happen when... More

Construction of beach facilities is underway and we hope that they add to, rather than detract from, the beauty of this spot. Don't bring glass bottles. Do bring snorkeling gear. It was easy to find shade under the trees.
