So in St. Thomas , Virgin Islands there is a very nice beach called coki beach it has very nice water and is very good for snorkeling. It had a snack bar, gift shop, and a rental shop for snorkel gear. The food was very good but as we were sitting down eating we smelled a odd smell my grandpa... More

The beach was very nice, "interesting" there are food stands and a couple of mixed drink stands down the beach a bit, chair rentals are available as well as a drive shop/ hut, it is a 1 min walk from coral world and if you do coral world first you have secure parking for the entire day. We never felt,... More

The snorkeling is amazing but the cruise ships bring their people here. The crowd is obnoxious, (how many drinks can you pound down in 2 hours. Chairs are set up like a movie theater. All I heard was F this and F that. Not the kind of people I want to be with on Vacation, I get enough of that... More

Get here early as parking is very difficult and beach gets crowded very quickly. There will be local entrepreneurs to offer you beach chairs at $5 per day. There are students learning to use dive gear. Others have fish food which attracts hundreds of fish who swim up close and around you. We brought our own snorkeling gear everywhere. No... More

Coki Beach is great for snorkeling and feeding fish. There are also amenities like a snorkel rental shop, restaurant, and a life guard tower (it was empty though).The water was clear and very clean, but the sand was the complete opposite. There were wrappers and trash all over the sand. Be cautious. Get to far from the crowd and you... More

Best to arrive before cruise ship(s) crowd to get a great spot in the shade. You must purchase some dog biscuits so you can feed the fish. The food/beverage is good too! Fun beach. Look for "Cat" so he can give you some STT history. Ms. Paula was our server. Take small bills or you'll be waiting forever for change.

Perhaps the Disney Cruise skewed our experience, but skewered it certainly was. Over crowded beach and noisy swimmers scare away the fish.

I was not blown away by this beach. It's smaller than you would expect and can get awfully crowded. The water is beautiful but the sand isn't as soft as other beaches. The locals are friendly and helpful to visitors. Just remember to tip. They're all just working for tips. The snorkeling isn't anything to rave about. The selling point... More

We traveled to St. Thomas on a cruise, we decided just to take a taxi out to Coki Beach after much reviews on this beach. After a long ride around the world to get to the beach because the taxi bus was dropping other people off at different spots we finally made it to the beach and was well worth... More

We traveled to St Thomas on a cruise ship. From the port we caught a cab that was 9 dollars each way per person. The trip took 20 minutes or so. The beach is well maintained. Has restroom facilities and has a restaurant on the premises. You can expect to pay about 20 dollars for a chair and umbrella. The... More
