Nice!

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.

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.

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.

If you are staying at the Marriott you must spend at least part of a day at Morningstar Beach. The water is pristine and it is relatively quiet and peaceful.
