We headed out for Coral World but we were side-tracked by Dawn & Kareem who invited us to experience Coki Beach for great snorkeling & food. They were very friendly & quickly set us up with an umbrella & chairs, we had our own snorkeling equipment. Dawn helped us place an order with Uncle Buddy's--red snapper (fresh catch of the... More

Coki Beach was great. From the local folks greeting us in the driveway and setting up our beach spot to the great snorkeling, this beach was a nice change of pace from Magen's Bay. Be ready to pay to park and/or beach chairs etc. Also be ready for the heavy marijuana smell cascading with the ocean breezes. The beach waiters... More

We stayed at Sapphire, but wanted to experience Coki. Coki has great snorkeling but not as good as Sapphire. The think Coki does have is restaurants, restrooms, chair rents, etc. Sapphire has none of that. The Dive Shop is open where you can rent some snorkle gear and chairs, but that is it. There are no restrooms there right now.

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Some might call Coki an “authentic island experience.” As someone who lived on St. Thomas for many years and has had the great fortune of experiencing real island culture, I can tell you, This Is Not it! Are you looking for crime and drugs and people willing to do just... More

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
