My wife and I visited many beaches in St. Thomas and this was one of the best. It was spacious and clean. They have various equipment rentals including various kyak types and styles. There is a restaurant that serves fast food and a patio to dine at while viewing the beach. There is a large pavilion to gather your group... More

Really is as advertised as one of most beautiful beaches in town. Nice gift shop and rental place. Food was good and bar was as well. Great waitress walking the beach taking your drink orders, so you don't have to leave the view.

This place is gorgeous! Clear blue ocean. White sand. Excellent rum punch prices. The food is pretty good too. Skip this if there are more than 1 cruise ships docked on the island and head to Hull Bay Beach instead. It becomes too overcrowded when the cruise people come in.

Beautiful!!! Is a great place to go swimming. Beach is very clean, picnic areas. Even though there were a lot of people there, it did not feel too cramped. Plenty of parking.

Earlier in July, during a trip to St. Thomas, my wife and I took a day and went to Magan's Bay. This was one of the highlights of our trip. This is a most beautiful beach and there is shade readily available to catch a nap under. I have never seen so much aquatic life in plain view except when... More

We booked a tour here as part of a recent cruise. It is a pretty beach. Very very calm water. And clear. But it was crowded and highly overrated by tour guides. We took an official tour. Best to just catch one of the many private cabs and save some money. There is a small entry fee.

Large beach, but you do have to pay per person in the car to get in. Great place to snorkel, paddle board, and float. Beautiful beach.

I wish I could go to Magens Bay everyday.The view will take you away, the water is PERFECT and swimming there is amazing. We had a large group and rented floats and just spent the entire day relaxing. This for sure is a must see in St. Thomas! I can't say enough good things about this destination and the locals...

Magens Bay was gorgeous. We loved the shade the trees provided and the view. The beautiful blue water is terrific.
