“Best beach on St. Thomas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We spent 5 days in St. Thomas and a good majority of one of those days we spent on Lindquist Beach. We waited until a day where there was a low number of cruise ships coming in and went to the very secluded (relatively speaking) beach. The water was crystal clear and we could see our feet in 5 feet deep water.

Advice/Items of Note:
General - There are no bathrooms to conveniently change. However, there are prota potty bathrooms on site. There is a small entrace fee to enter. No food places available. Luckily we drove but it is hard to find a cab to take you from and to this beach. Lifeguards were present. Make sure to not bring any bottles to the beach.
People visiting St. Thomas from cruises - skip the crowds at Magen's Bay (we went there as well) and visit here. Come early and bring food with you if you want to have a picnic here.
People visiting St. Thomas for longer than a day - Check the cruise schedules and visit here on a low volume cruise ship day. Generally, Monday and Thursdays are the ideal days to visit but obviously this varies from day to day.
Families with kids - Avoid the edges of the beach where water was high and rough. Have you kids swim in the water or do any other water activities towards the middle of the beach where the water was calmer than other spots of the beach.

“Beautiful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Lindquist Beach is quiet and beautiful, plus had a lifeguard! We were able to rent beach chairs and rate it as our favorite beach visit on St. Thomas.
Note: Port-a-Potty bathroom facility and no food purchase options on beach

“Pretty, powery coral sand beach, strong current, STEEP $2.00 pp entrance fee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I heard that this beach, also called Smith Bay Park was the prettiest in St Thomas on the east end not too far from Red Hook Harbour and indeed it is lovely. Not too crowded in a Sunday in March but there was quite a strong current moving from west to east along the beach. We parked our belongings past the Smith Bay Park sign to the west and found a nice isolated spot on a point overlooking the long sweep of this crescent beach overlooking St. John and the British Virgin Islands to the east.The sand here is very fine and powdery, wonderfully clean and the color or beige coral. My friend found some precious small shells and we talked to some friendly people from Canada.
Recently purchased by the Virgin Islands government and opened as a public park, Smith Bay Park is also called Lindquist Beach. Although all beaches in St Thomas are public, this beach charges a STEEP $2.00 per person entrance/parking access fee. I noticed there was anither road that people had driven down to the west of the entrance that avoided the fee however.

“Love Lindquist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We love this "hidden" gem. It is off the beaten path, in the sense that there aren't taxi's hanging around, so day trippers aren't very likely to visit this beach. There is also no concessions, so you must bring all food/ drink with you. There is one Porta Potty, which was not awful- this isn't the Ritz, after all- it is gorgeous, unspoiled USVI. I will let a secret out- They DO have a small number of chairs to rent. Since our Villa did not supply beach chairs, this was a welcome addition to Lindquist for us! The views are to die for, and the water is crystal clear.
