Gorgeous beach with soft sand and calm, crystal clear water. Surrounded by mountains, there’s a good mix of people on this beach - older folks, families, and young people. There’s a floating bar with shade in the water. The restaurant here, Dinghy’s, offers chairs and umbrellas, beach side food/drink service, boat tours, golf carts, kayaks, and legit anything else you could want. I wish I came earlier so I could’ve spent more time floating in the water.

This is a beautiful, calm, pristine emerald colored water bay that is absolutely worth visiting too. We were here on a Tuesday and they were very few people and we really enjoyed a meal at dinghy’s bar and Grill right on the beach. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas right there as well. Keep in mind that in order to get here you have to take a small boat from Charlotte Amalie Crown Bay with boats available every hour on the hour for $15 round-trip. It only takes 10 minutes to get there and once you arrive it’s a short five minute walk to the beach uphill to the right, you cannot miss it. If you come by car, please be aware that parking spaces are right at the entrance of the marina on gravel and you must get a parking pass at the marina office on the second floor to avoid being towed. The cost $10 for the day. If you park anywhere else you run the risk of being towed.

Not to be confused with Honeymoon Beach on St. John, this Honeymoon Beach is in Druif Bay on Water Island. Water Island is just west of Hassel Island in the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. Many tour boats stop here, as ours did, and there are plenty of private boats anchored in the bay. Or you can catch a ferry from Crown Bay Marina and then a golf cart ride if you aren’t up to walking. Bring your snorkel gear, because it is a good place to spot turtles grazing on the sea grass (I did, just watch out for the boats). Bring water shoes too because the shoreline is rocky. Thanks to Dinghy’s Bar and Restaurant, you won’t go hungry or thirsty. You might think Honeymoon Beach is off the beaten track because of the effort involved to get here, but the word is out. It is unlikely you will be alone in this little sliver of paradise.

My last visit prior to this was about 3 years ago. At that time the ferry was $10 round trip and chairs at Dinghys were free (just had to get there early!)The ferry is now $15 round trip. A nominal increase for us as a couple, but it means if we bring our kids it now is a $90 trip just to get there. Hammocks and chairs are still available but now for rent at $10 a day. Again, a reasonable price, but just felt like a Nicole and dime type scenario.

The beach and water are still as beautiful as ever and this remains my go to location to spot sea turtles (I saw up to 5 at one time) and would still recommend taking the trip if that is your goal.
Food and drink at dinghys are still delicious. I missed the floating bar and live music but covid makes that out of everyone's control.

This was my second favorite beach, first was Trunk. When we first arrived, we thought it may be our favorite until the swarms of crowds took over. We like to enjoy our beach time with our two boys, however other families here let their kids run wild, play right by my chair, and throw sand which ruined the mood. I was told it was$49 including the taxi ride down but then they charged us $10 for the ride as well so not worth the money. There was a very nice gentleman from Eco tours running the parking but on the way out a taxi driver was yelling at him to squeeze more people onto the truck taxi. Of course that yelling taxi man didn’t have a mask on or care about social distancing so there went his tip. I felt like this beach wasn’t worth the hype.

With so many nice beach's on St. John why Honeymoon? I can tell you why not. Four family member's Thursday Feb. 11th, thought it would be nice to have a beach bar, and get Lunch. Got there early brought our own chairs, and small cooler. One of the staff comes around taking orders while were on the beach, nice guy I remember his name, we go with a Strawberry Daquari, with their $15 cup. 10 bucks for the drink, a 5$ tip. Sooo 40 dollars for the Jitney ride, 30 dollars for one drink, thats 70$. Server comes back with drink, all good so far. My wife asks for a straw, he says he will be right back with one. Maybe 10 minutes goes by my Wife gets a twist tie in her mouth, from the drink. I dunno from a ice bag, cup bag? Don't care! Never got her straw by the way. I am beyond furious! I marched up to the bar and hollered pretty good. Sure they gave me new drink. I told the guy I was sorry for hollering, but I was upset, not the exact words I used, he aplogized for the twist tie. So maybe its me, ya know had she been gagging that frozen drink down with no straw she coulda swallowed it. We stayed and tried to salvage the day, had Lunch, nothing great about it. The Beach was very crowded! I can go to several Beach's even in high season with few people. And I can do a whole lot better then 70 Dollars for a contaminated Drink. SO WHY HONEYMOON? I will go sit somewhere else, 70 bucks buys a lotta Pineapple juice and Pussers Rum. Virgin eco tours/ Cannel Bay please feel free to respond.

Great view, but pretty crowded considering it’s size. Pictures are slightly misleading. The $50 day pass is not worth it! If you are thinking about the day pass, buy it when you get there when you can see the conditions. Kayaking and paddle boarding are not great in the wind. The food and drinks are over priced compared to other beaches around the islands and the woman asked for a tip after I purchased only a bottle of water for $5. If you are not hiking in, know that it is a $5 per person taxi ride to the gate and then $20 round trip shuttle to the actual beach - they do not let you walk from the gate.

We took the ferry from Crown Bay Marina to Honeymoon Beach on Water Island, St. Thomas. No one told me that you had to park in a special lot in order to avoid being booted or towed, so allow extra time to go upstairs to an office to purchase a $10 day parking pass. Parking is limited. You also need to purchase tickets for the ferry, which is first come, first served. The ferry ride is pleasant. The beach itself did not look like the photo. Much of it was very rocky, and it was difficult to enter the water on that part of the beach, because the rocks are sharp. Also, there was a lot of black silt mixed with the sand. Once there, you can rent chairs and other equipment, and purchase food. Apart from the parking hassle it might be fun, but there are nicer beaches on St. Thomas.

We have visited Honeymoon beach many times over the last 13+ years. Dinghy’s on Honeymoon beach has always been our go to spot. We would park ourselves have some drinks , eat lunch and enjoy the beach.
This year they started charging for the use of their chairs which we paid , but we found that after $30 rental for two lounges and an umbrella we had little appetite for lunch. Beach is still lovely and the atmosphere was nice. Great beach , but the new up charge made the whole experience middle of the road.

We love this beach. It’s quiet, and typically the people we meet there are are fun. That being said, I call this a “relaxing” beach. There really isn’t any snorkeling, although they do say there are a couple turtles that hang out there. I didn’t see them. I snorkeled for over an hour and the only thing I saw was a spotted trunk fish. Love those fish, but kind of disappointing that it was the only thing I saw. Could have just been the day/weather too. We will still go back, that’s for sure! The bar/restaurant were great! Always meet fun people here and we love the floating picnic table :)
