Never knew and Water Island until our last trip to St. Thomas. Please schedule a day for sun and fun on Water Island (Honeymoon Beach). The beach is beautiful with two (2) separate bars, jet ski rentals, floating bar, etc.

Beach was not as inviting as the website led you to believe. It was still in a bit of disrepair but that was not the main reason it was a dirty beach. Reminded me of South Florida beaches.

Take a quick ferry from Crown Bay to Water Island and enjoy the beauty, peace and tranquility of the 4th US Virgin Island. It's a great, easy getaway for a day.

There isn't a lot to do on Water Island except relax. You can snorkel, scuba, sun bathe and drink. That's pretty much it. If you need to decompress, go for it. We did and didn't regret it. But know there are NO stores on the...More
