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.

Lovely unspoiled beach

Came here when we were staying at the Marriot hotel. From the hotel we went down some stairs and encountered iguanas sitting on the pathway

We have been to St Thomas 4 times and 3 of the times we stayed here at Morningstar Beach at the Marriott. It's a little rocky but the peace and water is worth it. The Havana Blue and sandbar is located very close for a great lunch and drink.

This is a beautiful, clean beach with wonderful views. The water is very warm, relaxing and clear. This beach is not on the traffic path for any of the cruise ships, local ferries, or fishing boats so the water is very tranquil and a great spot to just relax and enjoy the ocean.

Love the beach at Morningstar. The only downside is parts are a bit rocky. Beautiful view and nice sand.

Bryan Kelley is the best bartender on the island! The strawberry jalapeno margarita is a must if you love spicy. The view from the Rum Bar is so serene, just sit back and relax. Great experience, thank you Marriott!

Took a couple hours to 'scope out' the beach. It was NOT crowded, nice restaurants there - one more casual than the other. Nice sandy beach, fresh water pool for those inclined, chairs and umbrellas available - nice deck for drinks and apps. I would stay at rooms on beach next time....!

This is a long beach that runs along the Morningstar/Frenchman's Reef Resort. There is a restaurant, a couple gift shops, and an equipment rental station on the beach that you can use to enhance your beach experience. The equipment seemed new and kept up nicely, the staff were friendly and the water was beautiful! There is parking within a few... More

This beach is gorgeous with different shades of blue and clear as bath water. Fairly warm too. We snorkeled right off the beach and saw quite a few fish. The sand is soft and clean, unless you get closer to the beach hut where it turns more rocky and shells collect there. Not crowded and plenty of chairs and umbrellas.
