This is a gorgeous beach. Not too crowded but its huge so lots of room even if it were. We spent our last day in St Thomas on this beach and had a wonderful time.

This is a beautiful beach on the Marriott property. It is kept clean, and you can get drinks on the beach, or walk over to CoCo Joe's for a meal. You can rent equipment here, or just lounge on the beach. It's a great way to spend the day!

Although the water was beautiful, the beach was dirty. It always amazes me that some people who smoke think it's ok to use the sand as an ashtray. On a positive note, there is parking and chaise and umbrella rental. The water is rougher here than on other St Thomas beaches so be prepared.

Morningstar beach is located on the Marriott property of St Thomas. It's a great beach for their guests. The beach is plenty large enough for sunbathing and swimming. This is not one of the beaches cruise ship tourists would want to see. There are more beautiful beaches on the island. Also, this beach is not in a bay; it's on... More

We were staying at the Frenchman's Cove and took the free shuttle to this beach a couple of times. There was a little bit of seaweed on the first day, but the crews worked hard to clean it up. Guests of the Cove can use the chairs and umbrellas on the beach as well as by the pools at the... More

If you are looking for a quiet beach close to the ports. This is it. But I really didn't care for it. The beach is very narrow and rocky near the volleyball court. There was also a foul smell down by the courts. We tried to do a little snorkeling but there wasn't much to see. The other down fall... More
