Often considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world....and after you visit, you'll know why! Soft white sand, calm clear water, amenities to make for a nice day at the beach - just a beautiful and relaxing place! If you're staying on the island, try to visit when there are not cruise ships in port. When ships are... More

A mile of fantastic sand and crystal clear, calm waters. Yes, it can be crowded when several cruise ships are in port (sometimes as many as 13,000 passengers in 1 day!). But the cruise passengers tend to arrive after 10 am and most are gone by 2 or 3 pm. So come early if you can and turn left after... More

This is the most popular beach on St. Thomas, for good reason. Crystal clear water, white sand, what more could you want? We went during the off-season, so the beach wasn't crowded at all. I would also recommend checking the cruise ship schedule and visiting when there are no ships in port in possible. One small complaint - we did... More

Truly beautiful and a wonderful way to spend a day on STT. Amazing views, powdery soft sand and the water so blue that you'll think you're in a lovely resort pool. The beach is a mile long and it can be extremely crowded on days when there are multiple ships in port. Be aware of how many ships are in... More

This is probably the best beach on the island. It is also the most crowded especially when the cruise ships are in port. I was lucky enough to visit this beach on a rainy Sunday and was able to appreciate the splendor of the beach. You can rent chairs on the beach for $7 plus a $5 refundable deposit. There... More
