We found ourselves once again at Megan's Bay Beach with a group of 12 while on a Private tour on our day at port from the Disney Fantasy. We first did some shopping and sightseeing and then decided on a few hours of beach time at Megan's Bay Beach. The beach is beautiful! Cost is $5 for anyone over 12... More

If you find yourself in the Virgin Islands then things are good, if you find yourself at Magen's Bay then even better! On the day we went it was overcast so the water wasn't a brilliant clear blue, not to mention 3 cruise ships in port, so yes it was crowded but we easily found a spot. Still I wouldn't... More

Beach is good, but only almost as good as the St. John beaches. Nice bar and clean toilets. There is a guy by the gate selling coconuts- very cool :) 3 USD Not good for snorkeling. 10 USD per person from Marriot to the beach in taxi. Admission is 5 USD for adults. Kids are free.

This is of the most beautiful bays I've ever seen. The sand is great on your feet. Not a shell collecting beach but my wife started digging in the sand and found some neat worn coral. The water is so warm and hardly anyone there. Of course everyone kept telling us July was off season so I don't know how... More

So, I was told it was one of the 10 best beaches in the world. Don't get it. Was no that impressed. Don't know what all the talk represents. I live in Florida and have been to plenty of beaches and this seemed just like another beach to me. Scenery was a little different that Florida with the island out... More

This is a beautiful bay. You have to pay to get into the bay ($5 per person), so bring some cash. There were no waves and no rocks on the bottom of the bay. The water was so clear, and we saw a few little fish in the bay. There were palm trees for shade and picnic tables. They rent... More

The beach was amazing! The water was the most beautiful shades of blue!! The food was very good, I recommend the pizza! Would have stayed on that beach for days if I could.

Beautiful beach, nice gift shop and excellent food and drink served on the beach. Also had beach chair rental. There's a small fee per car to get in. Nice beach. Avoid it on heavy cruise ship days if you're staying on the island....less crowded.

We usually try to go to Magen's Bay when we visit St. Thomas on a cruise. However, we looked at the cost of the visit in detail recently. Add this up. First, it costs $7.00 each way for a bus ride both ways. Second, it costs $4.00 for the entrance into the beach area. Third, if you get a cheeseburger... More
