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.

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

We visited this beach on a cruise ship stop, ending our day here to be close to Havensight and our rental car return. It was not at all busy in the afternoon. This beach is average, not very big and on the rough side. The parking is good, follow the road just past the Marriott, where it dead ends into... More

Wonderfully relaxing and attractive beach. Small, windward side of the St. Thomas Island, we enjoyed basking in the sun, floating and swimming in the pristine waters, walking the length of the beach, socializing with other relaxed folks on vacation, and watching the paddle-boarders, the pleasant activities vacationers engaged in, the passing variety of boats, and the occasional iguana. I, who... More

Nice beach and has all the facilities. It is actually the beach for the Marriott hotel but can be accessed from one end. Charge to use the chairs. Not good for young children since the beach is very steep and gets about 3 to 4 feet deep very quickly.
