We visited Magen's Bay beach while in port in St. Thomas. My husband and I have been to this beach before, and loved it both times. The landscape and views are beautiful, but there are also amenities available, such as beach chairs and food. A waitress on the beach will grab you drinks from the bar too. The sand is... More

We enjoyed an afternoon at Magens Bay in St. Thomas. The water is clear turquoise blue with white sand. Amazing beauty!

We stopped here on our tour for a few hours and loved it....hated to leave. It was amazingly beautiful and worth the entrance fee. The beach is very clean and there are bathrooms as well as places to buy food and drinks. We had some older people in our family that needed shade and it wasn't a problem as there... More

Nice to be able to rent chairs ( but pricey- $10 each) and have shade under trees. White perrfect sand , calm turquoise water with no rocks. Entry fee - $4 per person but well worth it..

Loved this beach! Crystal clear water, soft white sand and lots of shade. We were on a cruise and decided to take a cab to Megan's Bay. We got there around 9:30-10:00 Walked past the bar (on the left) and found some sun and shade and a picnic table. Drinks from the bar were very good and inexpensive. Food took... More

We came back after 8 months because we loved this beach the first time around. Even though there were a few cruise ships in town that day because the beach is so well structured it is not bad. The left side of the beach is the more peaceful side though the water sports rental and showers are on the right... More

Soft sand, calm and clear waters and sunny skies! What else would you want for a day at the beach? It is true, it can get very busy when cruise ships are in town, but hey, it is lovely to see so many happy people together.

Have been to Megens Bay several times. As a matter of fact, my wife and I became engaged there. Absolutely beautiful beach. You can walk out to neck deep and still see your toes on the bottom. Not overly crowed and there are several bars on the beach to get a drink. My understanding is that it is one of... More

We took a 25 minute shuttle from the downtown shopping area to Magens Bay ($8 per person one-way with an additional $4 per person charge at the entrance). The fee to enter the beach is worth the price as the beach is clean, well maintained, and they employ lifeguards. The beach is beautiful. Calm and clear, shallow water which was... More
