Breathtaking!

This is so far the best beach I have ever been to EVER! I don't know if writing about it will do it justice. But if you close your eyes and imagine Caribbean ombré waters of teal... read more

This is so far the best beach I have ever been to EVER! I don't know if writing about it will do it justice. But if you close your eyes and imagine Caribbean ombré waters of teal and azure and real soft powdery sand that has shade every where and surrounded by mountains, then open them and multiple what you...

spent the day here, relaxing on float in the blue green water, so peaceful and relaxing, did some snorkeling too. Has a little shop and snack bar for purchasing items. Restrooms with showers are clean as well as a picnic area.

Love this place! Although it is part of the state park, the beach was clean and overcrowded. There was a small food area and a bar to have a cold one while your relaxing on the beach. Water was crystal clear and beautiful, great place to snorkel, would definitely go back!!!!

We arrived in St. Thomas via the Carnival Liberty. We walked down the pier to where the taxis and guides were waiting. We said we wanted to go to Megan’s Bay and we were directed to an open air taxi. We waited maybe 5 minutes for the taxi to fill up (about 15 people or so) and we were on... More

We went to Magens Bay on a day trip. It was a great day of snorkeling and beautiful beaches, probably my favorite spot on St. Thomas. And we hit the Dairy Bar on the way back, which was awesome. Don't miss this beach if you're on the island.

This beach is everything I had read about. it is a great natural beauty. We arrived by car (paid $26 for car of six adults) at about 10:30 a.m. and there were only about 10 other people on the beach. As cruise ships arrived, more people began arriving. We left around 1:30. The beach itself is just gorgeous. It would... More

This was our shore excursion for St Thomas...so worth it & wished we could have spent more time here. It is a public beach, but quite expansive, so there is definitely room for everyone to find their own space; we did notice a much larger crowd by the restaurant/bar area. There was bar service on the beach & chairs available... More

Everyone raved about the beauty of this beach and it was pretty but had been to Trunk Bay the day before and this did not compare. Do not get me wrong there are no beaches or water like this in Iowa but not what I expected. We were stung several times by what every one said was jellyfish. It was... More
