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!!!

My in-laws asked for some good snorkeling for their kids, and we were pointed to Coki Beach. Half an hour later we were soaking up some sun, swimming in the clear water, and having a great time. If you rent snorkel gear here ($10, I believe) they'll give you a "bone" of food to feed the hungry schools of fish.... More

Small beach about 20 minutes from the Carnival port. We visited it while on a cruise and I think there were a total of 5 ships in Saint Thomas that day ... So it was extremely crowded. No place to put down a towel, had to rent the lounge chairs. Meanwhile it was nevertheless beautiful: soft sand, good swimming and... More

We loved Coki Beach, and it was a short walk from our resort. We were there on a non-cruise ship day, and that makes a huge difference from what I am told. It was busy, but fun busy, not obnoxious as if a cruise ship had just docked. The waiters and people on the beach are all very friendly, and... More
