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.

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.

Lovely beach right by the Marriott. Clean and well maintained with chairs and umbrellas. Gentle waves. Perfect place to spend the morning.

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.
