A favorite of windsurfers, the beach has fine white sand and beautiful views of St. John and offshore cays, and offers excellent snorkeling at the reef to the east, near Pettyklip Point.

We stayed in a condo at Sapphire Beach. The kids loved snorkeling in the blue waters. Corals provide an abundance of sea life for those who love to snorkel. The views from Sapphire Beach of the islands in the distance were perfect.

I absolutely loved the water and views here. The sand was a bit rocky and some waves, but it didn't stop me one bit from spending most of my day in the water.

We paid $10 per person in April 2017. Most people paid between $10-$12. That's one way, so it was $80 round trip for our family of four. Travel time depends on traffic. I would say 30 minutes. The drive is beautiful and... More
