If your ship docks in St Thomas you can get a open taxi bus for $10 per person each way to Coki Beach. There were several of us from our ship that got on this taxi bus and he asked us what time we wanted picked up and was there about 15 minutes early so that we did not miss... More

We enjoyed this beach. As we left Coral world we were greeted by someone who rented us chairs & would serve us food & drinks for the day (I think her name was Dawn). We had 2 orders of conch fritters & fries & 2 smoothies & a bushwacker. It was expensive, $60, for a beach take out lunch, but... More

One young woman took food orders and delivered to us at our beach chairs. Another man rented us snorkel equipment (inexpensive) and lounge chairs . They also had storage boxes with locks... More

We were here on Jan. 15th and the weather was GREAT. Everybody that worked there was very friendly and rum punch was very good. If you enjoy snorkeling then this is a place is nice, plenty of fish in knee deep water out to 10-15 foot deep. Guys be careful going shirtless, I found out they feed these fish enough... More

I agree with the other people that talked about the locals fighting over the right to show you a parking spot. We were totally confused. There was a lot of drinking going on and maybe drugs too. Not a family atmosphere. That said, the water was beautiful and clear! We saw a lot of people snorkeling and were told that... More

Coki is definitely worth a visit. Not what I expected upon pulling up in rental car, I was directed by some locals where to park for a $5 fee. They then led us to the beach, where we rented 2 chairs for $10 each for the day. They also let us know that if we needed anything such as drinks... More

Some of the best snorkeling on St Thomas, a down to earth beach experience. Many options for drinks and food while you soak in the sun. While many reviews comment on the many vendors being intrusive we appreciated the help and services they offered.

Enjoyed the beach once we got to it. We found the drive to be sketchy, with at least 4 people trying to tell us where to park. Some said $5, some said free, as they clearly fought for our business. Once parked (for free), our car was fine for the day. Sand and water quality was awesome, good snorkeling and... More

This beach itself was fine, it's the part of the island that's terrible, drug dealers asking you if you want to buy any drugs, the yell all kinds of things you would not want children to hear. I was so scared to drive there & there's no parking unless you pay to go through the corral exhibit. Unless you would... More

This is a gorgeous beach. Many people are aware of this. That being said, very pushy waitstaff and "beach hosts", be aware you will be charged for chairs, umbrellas, etc. Don't forget your wallet!!!
