Beautiful beach with pleasant waves. Crystal clear, azure water with plenty of beach chairs. Kids enjoyed the floats, paddle boards, snorkeling, etc. Even better was staying there and being only steps from the water. Plenty of places to eat or drink. Highly recommend, especially for families.

we stopped in St Thomas on a cruise. After shopping half the day and taking a 2 hours tour of the island we went to morning star beach because it was the closest to the port. The beach side near the volleyball court is very rocky. We walked down about 50 yards and it was much better. The girls sat... More

This is the only beach we found on St. Thomas that has good waves for kids. Part of the beach is very calm but there is a section that you can body surf. I would recommend staying there or stopping by when in st. Thomas.

Waves, sand and some snorkeling at either end... If you are a guest at the Marriott there are a lot of nice amenities, including a nice pool,

After getting off our cruise ship and mailing some forgotten bills at the US Post Office, we asked a taxi driver to suggest a nice beach that wasn't too far away and that had food service and bathrooms, and this is where he brought us for $6 per person. No one stopped us to pay a fee to use the... More

Don't go in the water near the restaurant by the volleyball court. It's really rocky there and will tear you up. Walk down 50 yards from there. The day we were there the water was rough. I don't mind rough water but we came to snorkel and it made that a little tough. Not a lot of fish or other... More

Morning Star Beach is part of The Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Resort. White sands, Small Waves, Great Beach amenities and near by food and service. Check to see if a resort fee needs to be paid if not staying with them.

Tranquil calm water, calm sea and magnificent views of the terrain. We went there for lunch at coco joes. The is really clean. We went there when it was partly cloudy so we had a lot of fun not getting burnt.

We stayed at the Frenchman's Reef for 7 days and managed to get down the beach for one day, mostly because we ventured out to other areas. The beach is very clean, sand is soft, and there seemed to be plenty of room for the amount of people. We didn't have any issue finding loungers and plenty of umbrella covered... More

Morningstar Beach at the Frenchman's Reef (Marriott) is a very nice beach for families. If you are a hotel guest you can get towels, rafts, kayaks and knee boards. Paddle boards are extras. There are restrooms and snacks close by but at resort prices. Not much snorkeling to do here...much more a lay on he beach and tan kinda place.
