Initially, we booked the coral and reef tour with Celebrity to go to Coral world. Honestly, that part was disappointing. After our tour of the aquarium and glass bottom bat tour, thay told ud ther was a beach just following the boardwalk, where I could do some snorkeling and my mom could rent a lounge chair on the beach. It... More

Coki has some of the "friendliest" fish on the island. It will get crowded so get there early or go on a non Cruise Ship day. Good food is available, some caught right across the street!

Out of all the beaches I visited Coki was my favorite. I'm comparing it to Lindberg, Honeymoon bay in St Thomas. Honeymoon beach and Trunk Bay in St John. Coki is small and probably the most crowded of all the beaches we visited. But there is a reason it's crowded - it's so convenient. We got there at 11:30 am... More

A very nice beach with good snorkeling and crystal clear waters and panoramic views with good food and drinks -- albeit a bit pricey. After a few hours, the local flavor can became intrusive with non-stop "selling" and all too frequent second hand marijuana smoke.

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.
