Crowded but great fun, people were friendly:)

I had a great time at this beach. I went as a day excursion from the cruise ship. 4 of us took a cab from the port for $9pp each way. The beach is small and crowded but the time... read more

Have snorkelled here many times including twice this January. Plan that the cab ride from the town will run about $11/12 per person each way. The beach does get a bit crowded about mid-day but if you move to right after you enter the water toward Coral World you will find fewer people and more fish. Equipment rentals are available.

Having traveled to St. Thomas in the past, I wanted to experience a more local beach. Not having the time to go to St. John's internationally renowned Trunk Bay beach, I sought guidance from our local guide, who suggested Coki or Koki beach. It is not exactly what I was looking for, but beautiful nonetheless. I wanted to experience a... More

This was a very beautiful beach with rental chairs and some amenities available. The snorkeling was moderate but there were many fishes to see.

Coki Beach Dive Shop is amazing. The staff is great to work with and the coral reefs are unbelievable.

We enjoyed this beach, lots of fish to see even without snorkeling. If you bring crackers or snacks you can feed the fish and it's very cool to see them swarm around you. The beach gets cruise ship traffic, so can be busy, but we enjoyed our time there. We ran a tab since we rented a couple of chairs... More

First of all, if it's a cruise ship day, this beach is so crowded you can hardly find a square foot of sand to sit on. So, try going on a non-ship day, a light ship day, or in the afternoon (you can get ship schedules at your hotel or online). If you want to avoid the people harassing you... More

First thing I noticed it when I got there was a lot of locals hung out on the beach, and you smell marijuana sometimes... also the locals were trying to ask you if you want to buy any!! It didn't bother me, I just said no and I went about my business. The people that served drinks and food on... More

1st off some of these reviews are far from accurate, this was our second time in St.Thomas at Coki beach and I was never asked about weed. If your coming off a cruise ship the beach will be packed. But if your staying on the island the best time to go is when the cruise ships are not in. Food... More
