A very nice beach for swimming and relaxing. There is an entrance fee to the area, but parking is plentiful and it seems well taken care of. A bit too crowded and "organized" for our taste but very nice anyway. Hint - bring bug spray if possible, there seemed to be sand fleas/gnats on the day we visited. Not sure... More

The beach itself is very nice. Beach loungers rent for about $10. Food and drinks can be bought on site although prices are high especially for the food. The best areas of the beach are to the left. The right side is steeper with less beach area.

Magen's Bay is always our favorite beach of the any trip! We usually spend an entire day bumming around. The water and views are beautiful. Some days it can be very crowded, especially is there are many cruise ships in port that day. There is a small fee to enter, less than $5pp. There are facilities with changing areas, restrooms,...

Magens Bay beach is consistently rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. It is almost a mile long, so there is plenty of room to find a private spot to relax. The end near the entrance is more crowded on busy cruise ship days, but that is where the amenities are. Head to the other end... More

crystal clear water, snorkeled most of the day, lots of different fish, very popular spot with the cruises, so the beach may get crowded. Food and small gift store that has huge variety of beach needs.

Picked Magen's Bay on a cruise excursion - voted top 10 beach - we were there 10 minutes. The beach was packed, narrow (because tide was coming in) and mental note - don't go on a holiday. Two cruise ships, plus everyone on the island. Loud music, wall to wall people. Not my picture of a beach in the caribbean.... More

Megans Beach is on the north end of St Thomas, so it is a good 30 minute drive from Charlotte Amalie, there was enough parking, but the beach is very narrow, with fine sand. it was not crowded at all.

We took a day at Megen's Bay just before we left to come home and wished we had found this spot sooner, It is listed in the top ten Beache's of the world., Water was great to swim in, they have restaurants, bars, chair rental etc. You can also rent water boards. Nice beach to walk if you are a... More
