The beach is what you imagine. Paradise. Great sandy beach and beautiful turquoise water. Great swimming. Loved it all and about $40 for 2 return in port taxi

A beautiful beach. The water was very calm and clear. We were able to snorkel and enjoyed seeing lots of fish and even a sea turtle. It may get very busy, however we went on a day that no cruise ships were in port and it wasn't too busy. Chair rental available and food/ bar.

There is nothing to dislike here. On the way to Magens Bay we stop along the road that overlooked it. From above the other islands, water, and the beach were stunning. There were flowers all around us and the hill we were looking down from. Magens Bay itself is clean, inviting, and beautiful. So much so one can lose track... More

Beautiful beach but too touristy. A must visit at least once but there are many other nice beaches without the crowds and without the entry fee.

This beach is truly breath taking. The crystal blue water, powder white sandy beach and all surrounded by lush green mountains. There is a small restaurant/bar to purchase thirst quench alcohol and non alcoholic beverages and the pizza is delicious. Magen's Bay is a must!!

Magen's bay is beautiful but very crowded. Obviously crowded for a reason, but I'm sure there are other beaches just as beautiful and less crowded.

My sister and I decided to go to the beach when we were in port. We decided against paying the crazy high fees charged by the cruise line. We got off the ship, got a cab for $8.00 each. The entrance fee was $4.00. They are lots of taxis. Don't worry about getting there and getting stranded. They have beach... More

Definitely one of the best beaches we have ever visited. And definitely the best beach in St. Thomas. Plenty of room to find a secluded spot. There is sun, shade, refreshments, and beach activities. You can't go wrong here!

This is one of the many beautiful beaches in St. Thomas. If you want a beach with lots of people around, this is the one! One thing that was nice is there was a place to get food and drinks which isn't at every beach. There is also float, SUP, and other types of rentals there for your convenience. The... More
