Wonderful Beach

This is definitely worth the visit and to spend some time here relaxing on this wonderful Beach. Tropical Drinks in your hand and taking a plunge in the cool water.

Don't miss Magens Bay with it's crystal clear blue waters and white sand. Their is a cost to enter the beach but it comes with extra amenities. You will have access to ample parking, bathrooms, showers, picnic tables, gazebo, bar, gift shop and concession stand. The beach is nestle between two mountains which make for tranquil water. You can sunbathe... More

A wonderful place to visit, beautiful water, wasn't too crowded when we went. Lots of fish swimming in the water which I think is really nice to see. Had a great day here.

I always have my doubts with ratings... Most of you know this beach is rated one of the top 10 in the WORLD!!! Well, honestly, I don't see that - we have been to nicer ones in the Caribbean as well as in Europe (just to name one: Crete, Elafonisis). This beach is a very long stretch - half moon... More

During our recent Caribbean cruise and stop in St. Thomas our family of 4 young teenagers, 2 adults and 1 senior, spent the day at the beach at Magens Bay. We had a great time at the beach and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although there were 2 other cruise ships docked in St. Thomas and the beach was quite busy,... More

If you want to lounge, swim, or simply enjoy the view, this is the place to go. This is a white sandy beach with minimal snorkeling, showers, beach bar/grill and toilets.

Go early before it gets crowded. We parked all the way to the right (looking at water). It wasn't crowded and you can walk the shoreline along the rocks. Very neat! !

If you have small children or if you are not great on your feet, the lack of waves and beautiful sand is for you. It can get crowded here, so check the ship schedule before you go!

Spent the day relaxing and watching the grandchildren playing in the water. The views from the beach were wonderful & the music a bit loud. We rented the Chaise Lounge chairs, visited the Gift Shop & they did have a Bar & Restaurant. We had a nice day at the beach, stayed at the beach for approximately 3 1/2 hours... More
