The beach is beautiful, although you need to bring all your own things. Non guests cannot use or even rent chairs or umbrellas. We rented stand up paddle boards and the staff was very friendly. This was the first time I did it and it is so calm I had no problem standing up right away. There is a restaurant/bar with average food, but great happy hour drink/beer prices. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing on the beach. Snorkeling is good here. Great place to spend the day.

Parking is always a challenge for this beach as it is a part of the Secret Harbor condo complex and the Sunset Grill Bar and restaurant.

But if you are able to find a place to park or better yet, take a taxi,

On windy days when some beaches just won’t work, try Secret Habour beach and the Sunset Grill for awesome appetizers and lunch.

Free from the sargasm weeds found on some East and North island beaches, this it the most family friendly beach we have found on island.

Bring your own beach chairs as the chairs on the beach are for the condo owners, and their hotel guests.

Best appetizer on the menu? The ahi tuna nachos are a must.

Beautiful hotel with a pretty beach.
Pros : rooms are absolutely beautiful and modern, spacious, large bathroom, has all kitchen amenities.
You are steps from the beach, nice pool nearby, food in the restaurant sunset grille was good, easy to get a taxi around St Thomas
Cons : Lots of mosquitos , especially at night, my Leggs were covered with bites. Be careful to sit in your front balcony. I even had a few mosquitos in the room.
With the exception of the mosquitos I enjoyed my stay at Secret harbour. It’s on a nice beach, umbrellas and beach chairs are complimentary for all guests. They hand you many beach towels to use.

They seriously need to learn about customer service. All front desk people were very unfriendly and frankly mean! For a hotel with this price tag it was so sub-standard and we constantly felt ripped off. Our shower had black mold, our air conditioner didn't work for 2 days, the beach towels were thin and stained, the base of the beach umbrellas were littered with cigar butts and empty drink glasses and there were bottle caps and cigarette butts on the beach. We had someone clean our room who left our door wide open for at least 5 full minutes, maybe longer and she was very annoyed when I said something. And don't get me started on the taxi scam! I honestly believe that the taxi drivers were relatives of the front desk people. Our fair from the airport to the hotel in a random taxi not associated with the hotel was $30. Our return to the airport with their driver was $50. And the front desk staff was not too happy when you asked them to call you a cab when one of their people were not stationed outside. At this price point we expected some luxury features. This hotel is only worth $250 a night and I'm being generous, not almost $600. Total rip off!!! The only redeeming quality was the lovely location. The cove was very pretty.

Smaller beach but very well kept as it’s part of a resort. Honestly, the softest sand on the island and just a quiet and romantic beach. Beach-side restaurant has twinkle lights that add to the ambiance at sunset.

Our Airbnb was located near Secret Harbour where we swam and snorkeled. The water is calm and cooler. We snorkeled where we saw turtles, corals, fish, sea rays, octopus and more. We found it to be the best place for snorkeling. There is a restaurant and bar on the beach where you can enjoy a nice cocktail.

We came as a family. We had 3 different condos. I will say the grounds are beautiful and well cared for. I wish they would put some of that care into the condos. Each of the condos needed a deep cleaning. They use grey water in the toilets and it looks like someone before you has used it and not flushed. I cleaned the shower myself, since the housekeeper didn't. Each of the condos needs some major TLC.
When they have food it is good and the service was excellent. The restaurant ran out of food one night, but rather than just closing they let people sit and wait at the tables.
If it rains the outdoor staff just goes home, so no clean dry towels or beach service for the rest of the day.

Beautiful beach with very nice snorkeling. This relatively small beach has a nice variety of underwater topography (sand, coral & seagrass areas) that had a good variety of fish, rays & turtles to see in a relatively compact location. The big drawback is the incredibly LIMITED parking (most of the parking is reserved for the resort & restaurant). A very good beach for beginner snorkeling.

While it is flanked by the Secret Harbor Beach Resort and thus can get fairly busy it IS a very good spot for snorkeling especially on the east end just past the dock. Parking is tricky if you are not staying at the resort and I would recommend using a taxi to go there. There is a dive shop and chair, as well as, equipment rental is available.

Parking is behind the resort up the hill by the tennis courts. You walk back down and between the resort buildings to reach the beach. There are no formal showers or facilities, as this beach is primarily used by the resort guests, but on the right side of the beach the restaurant has bathrooms that work well as changing facilites. There is decent snorkeling on the left and right sides as well as some in the middle between the moored boats. Not as lively or diverse coral and fish as some other beaches on the island like Megan's Bay. Watch out for the rocks - they rise abruptly from the sea floor and are easy to bump into if you lose situational awareness. The chairs are also only for resort guests. Best sightings today were a lobster, and a couple large crabs in conch shells.
