The scenery is beautiful if you can look past the hordes of other people on he beach and the surly workers. We had purchased chairs and were way back on the beach due to the Disney cruise in port that had taken up a huge swatch of the beach. The whole time the staff was trying to take away our... More

Magens Bay is one of several beaches in St Thomas that is a beautiful beach to relax and have a drink, what I loved about this beach, besides the water was a waitress walking in a bikini asking if you would like a drink or a cold beer. Magens Beach is a great place for the day.

The cab driver took us on a short tour then to beach. There is a $5pp fee to get on the beach but you will... More

This was our first beach to visit during our recent trip to St. Thomas. The beach was clean, and offered plenty of amenities. We enjoyed the swimming and snorkeling opportunities.

This was a fabulous last minute choice! We took a cab $16 each both ways from port to Magen's Bay Beach. The beach was empty! The water was clear and the pelicans fished for the many fish swimming in small and large schools. At one point, it felt like a Cousteau film as I was surrounded by thousands of fish.... More
