Have to say it can be a crowded beach and difficult to park, but there is such a lot going on our 14 yr old GD loved it. Plenty of Beach Bars, music, strawberry smoothies and good snorkeling. They feed the fish around Coral World, so it's a good place for beginners & kids to snorkel.

We went to Coki Beach on a day when there were no cruise ships in port, and I think that's why we had such a great experience. It even rained on us several times when we were there, but we still had a blast. You can walk a few feet into the ocean and be surrounded by big, beautiful fish.... More

Coki is an excellent beach for snorkeling and diving.. Easy to hook up with a diving school and have a great experience. Amazing and colorful fish and corals right there. No need to go out very far or dive to deep. So it's a really nice place to start out. HOWEVER -- If you go to Coki, I suggest that... More

This is a very tourist oriented beach. Many little shops along a boardwalk of sorts with refreshments and food available. Close to Coral World, one of the island's busiest attractions. Great beach to teach the young ones to snorkel. Not a lot of structure, but the fish have been fed, so they come to you. Like snorkeling in an aquarium.

Make the day a combo and go to Coral World too. We tried the Sea Trek at Coral World-great fun. Great staff there. Then head over to Coki to snorkel some more. Can be crowded but worth it. Locals are fun, helpful and welcoming. Snorkeling is worth it and the beach is gorgeous.

Coki Beach offers a beautiful beach for snorkeling and a great local flare. The people there are so nice and genuinely want to help make your visit better. The people there are always eager to point out the best snorkeling spot and last time they even gave us a dog bone to feed the fish. All kinds of colorful fish... More

The beach was very pretty and gave that local vibe, which was awesome. The only negative was the sand flies. They bit like crazy here.

Yes, the beach has some good snorkeling, not the best we saw, but good especially over towards Coral World. What was crazy about this beach, other than the hordes of tourists were the MANY merchants offering to 'get us a beach chair' .... 'beach waiters offering drinks', 'jewellery artists selling custom made bracelets or necklaces' a woman offering 'hair braiding'... More

I flew into St Thomas and was staying for one night before I went to the beautiful British Virgin Islands, and the place I was staying at was near Coki Beach so I went over for the afternoon. The beach itself is okay, and there are some fish to see, and unfortunately coral that people step on and not in... More
