Overview

Located on St. Thomas' north shore, the beach at Hull Bay faces Inner and Outer Brass cays and attracts fishermen, beachcombers and, because it is open to rough Atlantic waters, is considered one of the best places to surf on the island.

This beach has great snorkeling. Everyone says use water shoes but to really see some turtles and fish you need to swim out with fins. This beach is not like Magen’s Bay. It’s better in my opinion. It’s quiet and the food nearby is great....More

Beautiful bay and beach. Coral formations are spectacular. Not crowded and a great restaurant to hang out at. I love this place and hope it stays quiet and peaceful. If you want seclusion and relaxation this is the place.

If you like surfing or paddle boarding, just come here. No more comment needed. Best surfing on St Thomas. The swells off the storm up north were awesome.

Sorry for ruining it for everyone, but this beach is definitely less touristy than the others. A bit harder for swimming as it's somewhat rocky, it definitely gives you the castaway feeling of being alone on an island.

This is a beautiful beach frequented by the locals. You can pull your car right up to the sand. I would recommend water shoes if you are going into the sea as it's very rocky, not ideal for children. Reasonably good snorkelling during the day....More
