We spent the day at this beach while stopped in St. Thomas aboard the Disney Fantasy. Open air but covered bus transportation was easy to catch at the ship, but wasn't cheap at $9 per person each way for our larger group. Beach service was good but a little too competitive and jealous. Chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, and food all... More

We took a cruise and requested to go to Megans Bay the Taxi driver said Megans Bay was closed and this as the best beach ( Not true but it as fine). The day we went the beach was littered with sea weed, This is unusual, but I Wanted to note it. You have to pay for everything on the... More

We weren't sure where to go once we got off our cruise ship in St. Thomas and someone suggested we go here and I am glad we did! This beach is much smaller than the popular neighboring beaches, however that worked out well for us. You can rent a chair for $5 for the day, and someone helps you out... More

After being sick and tired of being asked "come to my store" in town, we hailed a cab for 10 bucks each and headed to coki to avoid the crowds at Magans Bay. The beach is smaller yet beautiful, was not that crowded, met some interesting seasonal locals that made me want to move there. They have lots of chairs... More

The beach and water here are fantastic. But, if you have already visited other beaches on the island, you'll be in for a shock; Coki is much more commercial than any other beach. There are people looking to get you to pay to park and to sell you everything from drinks to the marijuana my brother-in-law was offered (off to... More

It's in a horrible area, I don't know what we were thinking. So many locals stoned and tourists we didn't want to leave our bags to go and swim. Very shady area do not bring your kids!

If you like the authenticity of an island, this is the place. It's an ok beach, bigger waves. Must have fish tacos and see Malakey if he's available!

After reading some of the alarming reviews about this beach, I almost decided against coming here. I was scared out of my mind. However, our professional tour guide suggested snorkeling here as opposed to Magen's Bay and I figured he wouldn't put us in harm's way. This was my experience...yes, approaching the beach is a bit scary, I will admit.... More

Absolutely my wife and I's FAVORITE BEACH IN ST. THOMAS!!! We LOVE it! Yes, it can get a slight bit crowded (ha - not that bad!) when the cruise ships are in, but never a big deal ever! Best bet is to pay one of the guys outside by the parking lot ($5.00) and park there... then get one of... More

This is not a busy beach as it's small and not so upscale as most but it's next to Coral World so two birds with one stone. The beach is small but the water is warm. There are rentals shacks for snorkeling equipment (the are looks great for that) and 9 different shacks for drinks and food. Make friends with... More
