This beach has two faces: a quit spot to relax in a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks purchased from the beach bar; or, a sporty beach to snorkel, windsurf, sail and play volleyball. The choice is yours.

Quieter setting, very nice beach with bigger waves. (can be a little rough at times) Plenty of concessions and lounges to spend the day working on your tan.

Great place to get a kayak in the water...2 good restaurants right on the beach, 1/4 mile beach/beautiful water and can watch the boats come in. Marriott Frenchman is at the top of the steps for great views of the harbor and drinks before/afterward as well

Very well appointed hotel, clean with good service and restaurant - super beach with an OUTSTANDING AM view. In the early AM, you'll see fantastic rainbows from west to east, cruise ships heading right to you then steering left to enter the ST T Harbor.. enjoy it all! I lived above this for 4 years and enjoyed every lovely view/event... More

This beach is right next to the Marriott hotel complex. There is plenty of beachfront to enjoy. There are lounge chairs, umbrellas and floats available for rent, but free for registered guests. Plus, several nice restaurants to grab a bite to eat. It's a quiet, lovely spot on the beautiful Caribbean to soak up the sun and enjoy the surf.

Great beach. Stayed at the Morningstar resort for a week, and it was beautiful to wake up to. The depth drops a few feet quickly making for some pretty waves, but can be tough for kids or a pregnant wife to get out in the water.

We've stayed at Marriott's Frenchman's Cove several times and always spend a few days at Morning Star. Sand is powder soft, water has nice surf and crystal clear. Having drink service on the beach is great and CoCo Joe's is right on beach too for breakfast lunch and dinner. Chairs and umbrellas are set up, but get taken quickly. Beach... More

We stayed at Frenchman's Cove on the other side of the property and decided to spend part of a day on Morning Star Beach. It was totally different than our quiet small beach, windier and more surf. Not the best for super little ones, pretty deep really quick. Gorgeous, though. Lots of chairs, great lunch at Coco Joes and the... More
