Tranquil calm water, calm sea and magnificent views of the terrain. We went there for lunch at coco joes. The is really clean. We went there when it was partly cloudy so we had a lot of fun not getting burnt.

We stayed at the Frenchman's Reef for 7 days and managed to get down the beach for one day, mostly because we ventured out to other areas. The beach is very clean, sand is soft, and there seemed to be plenty of room for the amount of people. We didn't have any issue finding loungers and plenty of umbrella covered... More

Morningstar Beach at the Frenchman's Reef (Marriott) is a very nice beach for families. If you are a hotel guest you can get towels, rafts, kayaks and knee boards. Paddle boards are extras. There are restrooms and snacks close by but at resort prices. Not much snorkeling to do here...much more a lay on he beach and tan kinda place.

Pristine beach, well worth the admission fee. No snorkeling. Beach chairs and food for sale. Clean public bathrooms. Not crowded on a weekday that had no cruise ships in port.

Quite beach, wonderful view. Perfect if you're staying down in the cove - walk straight onto it. On the far right hand side, when facing the beach, beneath the hotel, is your best bet to see fish and coral. Be wary of the waves as this beach is not well protected from Ocean winds and waves.

This was a really nice beach connected to the Marriott Resort. Not sure if it is private or not, but pretty small and mostly Marriott guests it seemed. Gentle waves, clean sand and beach bars close by.

We stayed at the Frenchman's Cove next door to Morningstar. We packed our things up to spend a day at Morningstar Beach after seeing how beautiful it looked during our dinner at Havana Blue. It is a great beach. It's a little less calm, so the kids loved the waves. The sand is very soft & we didn't need to... More

I like this place because it's so close to Haven a Site Pier, it's private and if you want, at the other end of the beach you can rent a jet ski or okay beach volleyball. It's $6 dollars each way in a taxi from Haven Site. There is food available but they only take credit card, the drinks are... More

Not my favorite. The beach is narrow & then you go down into the water. We stayed in St Thomas for a week & every day went to a different beach with our cooler & chairs. The people staying at the resort did not seem to happy with our invasion. Drinks at the bar. $12 Wow!!! Take your own

Nice beach in beautiful St. Thomas. Friendly employees at Coco Joes and good food. A little high on prices.
