This beach is one of the top ten beaches in the world and another beach I've frequented since a child. However due to the ever increasing rules list and increasing fees for shed rental, etc., this beach is slowly dropping on the "must visit" beaches for locals. Outside of that, I love the tranquility of this beach.

Since moving here Magens has become our go to beach. We usually go after 5 to avoid paying. Beach is well groomed. Clean. Safe.. Beautiful turquoise water.

What a beautiful place. Even when the beach is crowded with others like us from the cruise ship it is still a great place. Crystal clear refreshing water to swim and then walk back to the beach to nice soft sand. I see why it is so highly rated.

Gorgeous, relaxing, peaceful. Have a good concession area and souvenir store. Avoid on cruise ship days!

Worth spending the day there! The water, the view - breathtaking! Nice place to take pictures as well. We didn't eat there but our fellow travellers said the food was great!

All the reviews about this place are true! A stunning beach! My quick tip....pick a spot away from the hut where they rent chairs. The guys working there were loud and cussing constantly. And also complaining about having to work for people on vacation. I mean they were LOUD too! At one point they were screaming about a fight that... More

Magan's Bay was a nice beach stop while we were in St. Thomas, however it was crowded with cruise passengers. Since St. Thomas has so many beautiful beaches to offer I would probably avoid this beach next time we are in town. It is easily accessible and is a nice beach but there are several alternatives. Talk to the locals... More

We were in St. Thomas on a Carnival Cruise. We had been at this port before, and had booked a private boat/snorkel tour based on Trip Advisor reviews. The guide brought us to Magen's Beach for our last stop of the day. We loved it and remembered it, so 3 years later we returned! This trip, in October 2014, we... More
