the natural aspects of this beach is breathtaking, however for such a tourist destination it is really not acceptable that they cannot put together decent facilities. The bathroom latches / shower facilities are old / rusted and in need of renovation (but maintained with toilet paper). There are picnic tables and there is a beach store and a place that... More

We took a shuttle to Magen's Bay from the cruise ship which was quite a ride! Left side of the road around curves through the mountains made for a thrill ride for sure! We had a Bushwacker drink at Magen's Bay which was delicious. The beach was super crowded because there were 4 cruise ships in port that day. It... More

Really pretty beach. I suggest you go all the way down to where the rocks jut into the ocean. We had a lot of fun here.

Have been to this beach a few times before, but today was the first time in the off-season with no cruise ships. And it was even better! We rented paddleboards from the wonderfully-friendly woman on the beach whose name escapes me and then spent some time just cooling off in the water. It was fantastic! We even saw several turtles...

Magens bay has lived up to its reputation as a top 10 beaches of the world each time we've visited. This time was no exception, even on a Saturday in the off season. There is an admission price for this beach, but it is worth every penny. There were picnic benches available right up by the trees edge of the... More
