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.

WOW!

One of the nicest beaches on the island! The waves are great, and it is never crowded. The restaurants there are great, too.

We were at the Marriott, Frenchman's Reef. We are not pool people. We love the beach. We headed here every day of our 7 day trip. We had lounge chairs and umbrellas included with our room rate. No waiting around for a chair or long lines to reserve. It was really convenient. We ate at the restaurants on the beach... More

This quarter miles stretch of beach is connected to the Marriott. If your staying there it has a nice pool. Two restaurants are adjacent to the beach for a quick lunch or something. Marriott guests enjoy free kayak, paddle boats & standup paddle boards. Beautiful water & views from a soft sanded beach.

As part of the resort, it's the perfect place to take in the sun and enjoy the slow rolling waves. Soft sand and clear water.

Great little hidden beach. Lots of waves to body surf. Bar and food available, but expensive. You can rent a chair and umbrella if you're not a hotel guest. Best part was it felt like it was out of the way and secluded.

This is a great stop if you need a quick Beach day and you're staying in Charlotte Amalie. I would rank it 5th out of all the Beaches in St. Thomas, but it has appeal because it is conveniently close to down town. I frequented this beach because it was a $1 cab fee to and from the city.

When we stay at the Marriott we love to go down to this beach. Whether you like to just take a walk, go for a swim, sit and enjoy drinks or just look out onto the blue Caribbean Sea this is an easy place to get to. Great place there for lunch too.

We stayed at the Marriott on Frenchman's Reef. Great location and beach. There are restaurants and a beach bar on the beach. Very cool place to watch the cruise ships come and go during the day.

We spent the day at Morningstar Beach on a recent cruise and were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful day we had. From the pier, taxis are $6/person and it's a quick 10-minute drive to the beach. We were dropped off in the public parking area at the end the beach where there is a water sports kiosk and restaurant/bar. Chair... More

Beach is beautiful. Nice change of pace to the numerous pools at the Marriott. Chairs go quickly, so get out to the beach early, for a nice breeze.
