This beach has two faces: a quit spot to relax in a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks purchased from the beach bar; or, a sporty beach to snorkel, windsurf, sail and play volleyball. The choice is yours.

The beach is the real reason to stay at the Morning Star hotel. It’s beautiful! It is well tended with lots of chairs and umbrellas. On the beach, you’ll find games for kids as well as kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skis and other beach amusements. Snorkels, flippers, masks, and floats are all included in the resort fee. Food choices are... More

This is the beach in front of the Morningstar Resort (part of the Marriott Frenchman's Reef Hotel) so it can be crowded. The water is amazing with lots of chair and umbrellas available.

We just had a little time before we needed to get back to our ship, so this was a convenient location to get in some beach time. This was a decent beach with some wave action.

Connected to Marriott's Frenchman's Reef, Morningstar is a wide, beautiful beach with a gorgeous view, activity rentals, and some bars and restaurants to grab a rum punch and a bite. Also more active alternative to the much calmer (and smaller) private beach at Frenchman's Cove.

Service and food was great - and people on St Thomas are so friendly! The island was a very special place for our destination wedding and honeymoon.

Nice beach on the south side of the island adjacent to the Marriott. Water was walm, calm, and clear. There are a few places to rent water sports equipment too.

We were staying at the Marriott Frenchman's Cove and would walk over here regularly for the restaurants and the water when we weren't touring the island. There's Coco Joes, Sandbar and Havana Blue restaurants right on the water and the view of the water is great from the restaurants. This beach may not be as highly rated as the other... More

Very nice beach, located very near the Marriott Hotel, beach has beautiful light brown sand that stretches about half mile, nice Rolling waves and most cleanest water I have seen in a very long time. Beautiful. Lots to do, or just do nothing. Great little find here in St Thomas.

There are no cruise shore excursions to this beach and its a short cab ride from the port. The beach is kept clean by Marriott (thank you). There are many chairs and umbrellas setup on the beach that are for Marriott customers. You can bring your own or rent some from the no pressure beach rental shack close to the... More
