The beach itself can be dirty. There are rocks to avoid. However, the water is beautiful. It's quiet and tranquil. The locals hang out here.

Its not safe at night. This is very dirty beach. It is very crowded. I would not recommend visiting this beach. You are not missing anything.

Quiet, secluded, beautiful beach, you have the Ritz on one side of the road with beach and walk across the road to Vessup Beach. No amenities but great views and private.

There is some good snorkeling right along this stretch of beach going into Redhook, but this appears to be the place the locals come to park, drink, sleep and even bathe in the morning. We wanted to snorkel, but did not feel comfortable here leaving...More

I love Vessup Bay. Great wind being on the east side of St. Thomas. I have spent many a day lying in a hammock there. Awesome view of all the island to the east.
