Since we were staying at the Marriott, we used this beach to do our morning boogie boarding, or as we called it, morning water aerobics! Now, the waves are small, but with the scenery, it didn't matter. We loved this beach, and there are two restaurants on wither side so there is plenty to eat/drink.

In 2014, we were recommended this beach by local diving tour person and couldn't be happier with the beach. Taxi drop off is in front of the hotel. There is a little general store and bar at the back side of the hotel. Water and beach are very clean. Just revisited again in 2015. Hotel charged us $10 per chair... More

You don't have to be a guest to enjoy this hotel beach. It almost always has waves that are the perfect size for our son to boogie board. Park at the bottom of the hill and rent boards at the kiosk midway down beach (we have our own but I think they are $7 for the afternoon). The restaurant next... More

Be sure to pay for renting the lounge chairs if you are not a hotel guest. Great sandy bottom with slight shore break. Great view of cruise ships as they enter/exit the harbor. Fun place for the family and short ride from the port. Hint: ship crew go there, so should you.

We stayed at Morning Star so this was our view. It was lovely and the water was great. They have everything you need. Snorkel gear, food and drinks are right there. Jet skis at one end that you don't really see if you don't know they are there along with kayaks that you can rent.

I ended up here with a friend during a cruise stopover. At first we were worried about finding a decent beach to laze about on for the afternoon, but were so happy we found this spot! It was actually suggested to us by a local. Just a short cab ride from the port, this paradise was located at the Marriott... More

This beach if right off the Marriott property. It has the feel of a private beach despite being public.

This beach is clean - has chairs and umbrellas - great views of the boats going in and out - plus a fun restaurant Coco Joes with great food. We went to Trunk Bay/St. John and the beach was crowded, dirty and very small - no chairs - u had to pay $8 for them plus a $25 deposit. Lot's... More

This beach lies on the Marriott property. It is super well kept. But I would caution parents with children, the dropoff is quick and the waves can get kind of rough
