This beach has it all. Great sand, Snorkeling, Scuba, Food, Gifts, Service from Locals and crystal clear water. Don't let anyone scare you from going to this beach. Its numeral uno.

Went to Coki Beach to try discover scuba I was not disappointed. Great little beach. The water was wonderful and there was plenty of sea life to see either snorkeling or scuba. I didn't encounter any problems (was a little scared because of some reviews) and that might be because we were on an excursion. It might be best to... More

We just came home from our two-week trip to St. Thomas. We decided to spend this much time after having been there on cruises and falling in love with Coki Beach. But this time, we got to see some true colors with the locals. People were (right behind us) talking about how much they hated white people because white people... More

This was the only site we visited twice as the fish are so abundant and feeding them dog biscuits really gets them close! Lots of local flare too as there are little shops that prepare food and drinks and bring them to your beach towel or chair! Go to Coral World the same day and you have easy parking and... More

This was the worst experience of the trip. Get out of the taxi and totally harassed by local help. Extremely pushy.......... Awful would not go back because of the people that worked there. Clean the people up. Snorkeling was great with the dog biscuits they give you. Uncle Buddies???????????????????? Scary people that were not nice. I thought there was going... More

We like to beach dive. The staff at Coki beach were helpful and friendly. We actually saw more than we were told we "could potentially" see. We took a route to the West and we saw black spotted eels, sea turtle just to begin with.

We came into St. Thomas on a cruise. I researched each of our stops. My husband loves to snorkel, so we selected each of our beach stops based on the potential for good snorkeling. We took a $9 taxi ride from our cruise ship to Coki beach, which is at the entrance of the underwater marine center. The beach itself... More

While staying in St. Thomas everyone we talked to said that we need to visit Coki Beach. The most important thing they wanted us to know was that this was where the "locals" hang out. Before visiting, I checked out tripadvisor and the reviews were mixed. What worried me was the quasi violence that some wrote about. To my pleasant... More
