We were on a shore excursion with a cruise and this was one of our stops. We were allotted 2 hours but we could have done this in 30 minutes. Nothing really special about this beach once you take in the view which was a wonderful. But we have must larger and prettier beaches in Southwest Florida. The food concession... More

Earns its title as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Has everything a beach lover wants. Clean, clear, beautiful water and sand. Plenty of shade trees right on the beach for those who aren't looking for a tan. Don't even bother renting chairs, you will not want to get out of the water. There are plenty of... More

You will not go wrong going to Magen's Bay beach. It has en entrance fee which guarantees clean facilities, clean beach and a wonderful place to spend your day at the beach. Only one complaint: the water in the showers is not sweet water but closer to sea water than anything. Not the best way to get all the salt... More

Beautiful beach! We got dropped off by a cab from a cruise ship. We camped out in front of a hotel and rented chairs. They offered drinks and refreshments on the beach. It is a beautiful beach with nice facilities. Quite busy, but you can expect that being such a beautiful place!

Great place to visit the beach with good facilities. Beautiful looking beach with decent depth of the beach with endless width. However, this place does charge an entrance fee ($4 per person and $2 parking) and it is not a place to snorkel. I prefer Trunk Bay on St. John, but this is a whole lot cheaper and more convenient...

This is the place to go when you just want to hang out, snorkel, bob in the water and maybe enjoy a beverage or two. The beach is clean and well-kept, and the open-air bar is about as laid-back as it gets. A great place to spend an afternoon when you're tired of racing from one tour or attraction to... More

Didn't stop us though... maybe 25 people on a beautiful 1/2 mile beach. Nice! Snorkeling at the west end in the rocks was better than expected (travel guide said no snorkeling).

Magens bay views were truly breathtaking, we recommend you bring your own chairs, towels and snacks as they charge you $4 per person to enter, then you have to pay for everything, you have to rent towels, chairs, and water floaties, and it's not cheap! They also have a food area, all they have is pizza, sandwiches, fried, chicken tenders... More
