Fun time and Very pretty

This is a must do if you are around St. Thomas. The boat ride over is $5 and the private little island is quiet, pretty beach and good food.

We ferried over to Water Island. I do recommend to go early or call to reserve a golf cart. there isn't any transportation in this little island unless you want to hike around the dirt roads with no signs. There is a free bus that will take you to Honeymoon beach on water island not to be confused with St... More

Spent the day on the island. To ferry over cost $10 round trip. We rented a golf cart last minute from Rachel's. She was great!

leaving St. Thomas to come here was a treat! A sleepy little island with music (live sometimes which was in our case) and two bars and grillls/food. The food wasn't fresh which were disappointed about but it was still good. Beautiful little beach/cove but not private - lots of boats moored and people.

There are two bars/food shacks - one at each end. The one at the far end has good drinks and, believe it or not, free wi-fi! If you can, avoid... More

We love this beach! You can hike up and see the beautiful views or relax on the beach with a cold beverage from Dinghy's beach Bar. We were on a friends boat so we dinghy'd in. People are so friendly here.

Be sure to visit the Dinghy Bar at Honeymoon Beach it will be the highlight of your visit. The island is only accessible by boat or the water taxi, golf car rentals are available.

Nice little beach. Hard to get a chair on a busy day. No cars on Island just golf carts. Ate a good burger at Heidi's on the beach. Heard fish tacos were really good but were out of fish when we ordered.

Make sure to check the times that you can rent a golf cart! When we were there they closed at 1:30. Not much to do but hang at the beach, though relaxing.
