Megan's bay is really talked up. It's gorgeous don't get me wrong but it's not the best on the island. I live here and you can find better ones that aren't so far from your cruise ship port and doesn't cost money to get in. (Megan's is $5 per person) still better then any beach back in the states but... More

Cruise port stop but we didn't want to do a ship excursion. Rented car at Budget by the pier and drive completely around the island. Beautiful!

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 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.
