My family did a cruise to attend my son's wedding in St. Thomas. The wedding was actually held on Megan's Bay. Beautiful place. Very kind people. After the wedding on the beach we all changed into swimsuits and celebrated the new couple...Island Style.

It is a bit busy considering all of the tourists and cruise ship travelers. However, the sand is like powder and you can easily find a place to hang out. The... More

Beautiful beach! Worth seeing if you're in the area. When the cruise ships are in, it can be very crowded. Calm, clear water. Gorgeous!

The grounds are beautiful. The pools are wonderful. Only Problem is the Hot Tubs were not hot. The rooms are three star but clean and comfortable. Love the balcony overlooking Magens Bay.

As part of the excursion in St. Thomas from Princess Cruises we visited Magens Bay early in the morning around 10:00am. The Beach was empty as occasional rain showers kept locals away for later.

It's nice, like a lot of other beaches, can be crowded if cruise ships are in. Have to pay to get in, a few facilities, parking can be limited.

You do have to pay to get in($4) but that helps keep out the riff raff. The beach was nice and we rented some paddle boards. The restrooms were clean and maintained. Snorkeling was ok.
