The white sand, the most beautiful blue water. This is exactly what you dream of when dreaming of your next beach vacation. The people, restaurants, and beach experience is one of a kind. You’ll be hooked. I wish I was there tonight.

Pulling in by boat saw a beautiful bay with a great beach! Took the dinghy ashore to find the Soggy Dollar Bar. We had a terrific time. Cold drinks - we did not eat.

Great day stop. Glistening beach. Avoid weekends as locals cram the anchorage and also holidays. Wouldn't advise anchoring overnight as southern swells might make for a long night.

This is paradise. Crystal clear water, great bars and food. So relaxing. It does get crowded in the afternoon but they all go away and morning and evening are absolutely wonderful.

Great beach, fun places to eat, drink, and socialize, and lots of sea life to observe while snorkeling.

It is one of the best beaches in the world. The only down side is that sometimes in the early afternoon you have to put up with a bunch of drunks on day sail trips from St. Thomas.

White Bay is a gorgeous place to relax with a rum drink or cold Carib and take in the beauty. Float in the water, sunbathe in a lounge chair, sit in the shade and read or people watch. There are a variety of beach bars...More

If you like a party atmosphere with lots of people and a great assortment of beach bars, this is the place for you. If you like a little more peace and quiet, the key is to get there on an overnight yacht charter and arrive...More
