This wonderful little beach below the Marriott Frenchman's Reef Hotel is a perfect place to relax and watch the cruise ships come it. It is somewhat secluded but has two restaurants--one that is very casual, with outdoor seating and a beach bar,and one that is a romantic place with great food.

This is a great beach right at the Hotel! The water is clear, the sands are white and its steps from the Marriott. You can rent kayaks, jet skis, and rafts right from the beach. You can also play volleyball, tennis or swim at the ocean pool. There are two choices for food. Coco Joes and the Sand Bar. Both... More

If you want to relax and enjoy the crystal clear water of St Thomas, this is a great beach. This is not a snorkeling beach, but that helps keep the crowds down. Very nice staff, great restaurants/bars on the beach. It's clean, safe for families, and very relaxing.

This is a beautiful beach accessible through the various Marriott properties and the on the beach restaurants. The waves roll in. A perfect place to jump the waves. Clear and warm waters.

One of the best beaches in St. Thomas. Easy access and long so not crowded. There are amenities too since its part of the Marriott. Very family friendly with soft sand and no rocks or seaweed!

Spent a week at Morningstar Beach Resort last Feb. Beach was so good we never went to the rest of the hotel. Never had a problem getting lounges with an umbrella for shade. There is everything you need is at the beach. Two restaurants, two bars, water sports, a pool, tennis courts and a great sand beach. What else do... More

You can sit on the beach here and watch the cruise ships come in and out. It's a perfect spot to watch the action in the water. The beach is clean and well kept and has 2 really good restaurants to grab something to eat while visiting. This should be a definite beach to see while on the island. You... More

One of the best beaches in St. Thomas! If you are a guest of the hotel all the water sports are free except the boats and the jet skis but snorkeling equipment is all free. The beach is great, the chairs and the umbrellas are all in working condition and comfortable.
