Nice little private beach and part of the Marriott Frenchman's Cove complex. Due to the popularity of the hotel and the resulting crowds you will find some trash left by insensitive guests, but overall its a clean beach with lots of beach chairs and umbrellas. The Sand Bar at the far end has great "Tapas" (small dishes - think appetizers)... More

We stayed at Frenchman's Cove next door and wandered over to Morningstar Beach for a little while one afternoon. This is definitely a nice stretch of beach but wasn't as sheltered as some of the other beaches on island. If you want to play in some waves this is a great beach. If you're looking for nice calm water, go... More

Let's see, one of the best private beaches, best restaurant on the island, spacious rooms close to the water and easy transportation to anywhere you choose to go. Do,you need more reasons to check in? For us, it is much more preferable than the main building which is just a walk or ride away.

We were at this beach nightly since we stayed at the Frenchman's. The beach wasn't to bad. There were cigarette butts and trash items scattered in the sand. The pool over there looked gross and the tennis courts looked poor. I would say it's not to bad but it could be nicer.

From the Marriott Frenchmen Reef Resort Morning Star beach welcomes you. Night kayaking in this beach gives an awesome experience. Both in the morning and during night you just can't leave this beach and go home when your trip completes and the beautiful beach keeps on disturbing you when you return from your trip.

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.
