    Best snorkeling!
    We were on a cruise and another family recommended this beach for snorkeling. It was $28 for round trip taxi from the port and it was so worth it. The snorkeling was the best ever! Bring dog biscuits and you’ll see even more fish. It cost $25 for an umbrella and chairs which was worth it. Husband has burger and fries and it was $22. I had a pizza and it was $12. A little high priced but if you’re hungry! Def make the stop here. It’s beautiful.

    Stunning Beach! Clean and Clear water!
    Was a little worried after reading some reviews that it would be runover with trash. It was amazing! Clean beaches with loungers and umbrellas for rent, crystal clear water, restaurants with waiters taking your orders on the beach. And most of all -actual bathrooms that were clean and stocked! The food is your usual burgers and sandwiches but they did fine and the drinks were cold. The water was so calm and clear! Saw many fish swimming and with no movement it was safe for our some and my Mum who doesn't have much strength with waves. Absolutely beautiful and will return!

    Snorkel DIY Adventure
    Enjoyed swimming with schools of guppies, angel fish the site’s clear waters. Spotted an octopus, squid, ray, and lots of other fish. We bought some amateur snorkeling gear (~$40 at a big box store). There were rental options on site too (gear, umbrellas, chairs, etc., food and drink vendors (didn’t check that out).

    A must experience
    It was definitely a different experience from the other beaches but it was something I am glad I experienced. It was definitely a local beach with lots of music and food (and pot). It was a little overwhelming when arriving with the locals offering there merchandise however, once you settle in it was very enjoyable. The beach is a little rocky when entering but certainly not bad. It’s not my favorite beach but I will definitely return on every visit.

    Nice little beach for a side trip
    Smaller beach but sand is white and the water is very clear. Nice place. A bit much on the rocks when we went coming in from the ocean in parts but that was probably timing. Can get very crowded and parking is quite limited so consider a taxi here and travel light with the space being limited when busy. Overall a nice place to visit for a couple of hours. Just not an all day type of beach. Better choices for that, in particular on St. John but for a short beach trip, works very well.

    Great for snorkelling
    This is a beautiful beach with white sands and clear water. This is the perfect place for snorkelling, there is a bit of coral on the right hand side of the beach with lots of colourful fish. You can rent a snorkel on the beach for $5 for the entire day. It is a small beach though so gets busy quick so try to make sure you get there early.

    OMG clear water
    If you want clear water and a place to sit in the sun this is a great place. Do yourself a favor and rent a chair and umbrella, then sit back and relax with drink in hand. The locals will come around and be your waitstaff for drinks.

    Beautiful, alive beach but be ready to be bombarded
    Beach was beautiful and we were able to see fish and a stingray while snorkeling just off the beach. However, as soon as we got there we were pounced on by a group of men trying to get us to pay for chairs, towels, and other items. They bothered us throughout our whole time at the beach and we even got offered edibles. This made it one of our least favorite beaches to go to in St. Thomas

    Beach in a run down area with limited beach and infrastructure
    It was a beach with beautiful waters. But the infrastructure was old and needs improving. Not that clean but people were friendly and hospitable. Not much in the way of a formal set down restaurant but did offer carryout options to take and eat on beach. We tried a fried shrimp with two sides carry out meal and ate on only available seating—our rented chaise loungers. Old beach chair loungers offered at $10 per person. Did have a unique vibe but not appealing. Limited parking. I wouldn’t go back unless had no other beach to go to. No beach admission cost.

    Lots of wild life activity fish and birds Snorkeling is very much recommended here. The fish swim right up to your face. Be careful where you step there are urchins. There’s a few beach front restaurants you can order drinks and food right to where you’re laying. Be careful with the waiters. Make sure your order is correct before paying. Also make sure you don’t fall for the chips and salsa it’s a bag of Doritos and sweet and sour sauce 😑

Interesting beach, nestled within lots of local food, chairs and trade. The water is one of the nicest places we’ve experienced on the island. Latter in the day, it becomes overwhelming crowed, everyone’s playing music that sounds like hypertension mumbles. No sense in buying a blunt, just inhale.

Snorkeling is supposed to be good here, well it was not. Very few fish, almost all the coral is dead. People everywhere jammed onto the narrow strip of beach, LOUD music, expensive drinks and food. We were there about 2 hours. Tourist taxis just kept bringing in more and more people. There is no charge, that’s good because I would have been very disappointed if I’d had to pay for this unpleasant experience. If you’re driving there, better go early, parking is very limited.

This beach is great for snorkeling. I had been to St. Thomas/St. John 10 years prior and the place to snorkel was Trunk Bay, however this time Coki was much better than Trunk Bay for snorkeling. The beach is a little rocky compared to any other beach we visited however that makes it great for shelling. It does get very crowded if you go there on the days when alot of cruise ships are in port however on other days it is quite relaxing. They rents chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, floats all for about $5 or less. Cheapest rentals we found at any beach. The food served there by the locals is ok. The Conch fritters were good but my Mahi Mahi Sandwich was very soggy and overall just not very good but other than that a nice little beach to add to your list to visit when in town.

Coki was the quintessential Caribbean beach. When you look in front of you out at the water it is some of the most beautiful views with turquoise water (which is common to most USVI beaches). But Coki had something that no other beaches had, local shops completely surrounding it which we thought added to the ambiance. It had music playing; 5 places to eat and multiple retail/rental shops, just be warned to bring cash because only one restaurant took credit (although the food at the place that takes credit was incredible). Coki had by far the best snorkeling of all the St Thomas beaches, stay to the right side by the rocks and purchase the dog biscuits to feed the fish. Highly recommend for a more active beach spot.

Awesome Beach, best snorkeling on the island. Get there early for the best spot as the beach gets very crowded because of the snorkeling. We say a ton of sea life, eels, blue tangs, conchs, angel fish, lots of coral, and so may others. Get the dog biscuits at the little shack and feed the fish, they come right up to you and eat the biscuits right out of your had. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented for $5 and $10, but you have them all day. There is a place to get food and drinks that is reasonably priced and they come out to the beach to take your order and bring it to you. Great location and crystal blue waters.

My husband and I were excited to go to Coki Beach for the snorkeling, which was fantastic. However, the rest of the experience wasn’t great. The water was beautiful, of course, but the beach was dirty and littered with trash. We ordered food (2 cheeseburgers) and 2 drinks from a person who was waiting on beach goers and didn’t receive our food or drinks until 2 hours later. This cost us $60. Also, 2 teenage boys got into a fist fight behind us. We moved out of the way and they ended up fighting in our towels and backpacks and they didn’t stop until we yelled at them. If going to Coki Beach, I would recommend ordering food and drinks from the bar/restaurant directly and waiting on them there. Also, go to the beach during the week as it is less busy.

The water and snorkeling here was excellent. My husband and son said it was much better than some of the other beaches they had gone to. There is beach service and the attendant will set your chairs up for you rather than you have to carry them yourself. There are concessions available however we waited over and hour for 3 drinks as well as one order of chicken and fries. There was a younger crowd at this beach. It was smaller than some of the other beaches we had gone to and parking was a challenge. I would recommend going early in the day to snorkel and leaving by noon to go to a larger less crowded beach.

We walked from Margaritaville. As soon as you get there guys are hassling you about chairs and umbrellas, we wanted them so it wasn't the end of the world, 3 chairs and an umbrella were $25 to rent. The beach isn't very deep but it is long, the water and view is amazing. The water was refreshingly cool while we were there, and no seaweed on the beach. There are shops, snorkel rentals, and places to eat and drink, drinks took a long time when we ordered from a waitress walking the beach. The guys putting down chairs and umbrellas really pack you in close and they played really loud music, I like Reggae but the music was bad.

We wanted a place close to Margaritaville where we were staying to go spend the day and came across reviews of this beach. We decided to drive over even though you could walk from Margaritaville. There is a parking area where they charged $5 to park and they cram the cars in but they help direct in parking and leaving. They walk you to the beach and offer to rent you chairs and lots of other things like floats etc... we brought towels so we didn’t rent anything. We found a spot very easily since there were no cruise ships in. I hear this is a popular beach and when cruise ships are in port it’s hard to find a spot. We were lucky it was not busy at all. There were people walking around asking for drink orders. There were a number of vendors selling food and drinks. We did not get any food we chose to eat when we got back to the room. I went snorkeling to the right side closer to the aqua marine place which to me had way more fish than the left side. It was definitely worth the trip over our Daughter enjoyed the snorkeling at our pace vs. a charter where they typically rush you. I would definitely recommend this beach spot. Do ink prices were all over the place. The painkiller was around $12 but the bush water was over $25 so I only did 1 drink. We purchased the dog biscuits to feed the fish 3 for $1 and the fish would just swarm around you they even came up and ate it from our daughters hand. Some people frown upon feeding the fish and I didn’t do research before hand so I assume it’s ok. That is up to you if you feel comfortable there is a vendor that sells them right there on the beach. It was awesome got great photos of the fish.

DO NOT GO HERE!! Beach looks beautiful but the sand is deep and your walking on broken rocks and shells to get in the water. We only stayed 30 min. No refunds on chairs and umbrella and they would not allow us to gift them to other beach goers. It’s very sad.
