Are beaches rocky in S. Thomas?

I read somewhere that the beaches are rocky at first. Can you confirm/deny?

Toadally deny. Would love to know where you read THAT one!

There are some rocky beaches/inlets on the North (Atlantic Ocean) side of the island but these are virtually inaccessible without a four wheel drive and are NOT places where either tourists or most residents go. Soft sand is what we've got. Cheers!

Beaches in STT are gorgeous soft sand, that's why we love spending so much time there! Magen's and Coki are both beautiful and we plan to check out some of the other beaches when we finally spend a whole week there in April 09.

The beaches aren't rocky, but the ocean might have some parts that are rocky. It depends on which beach you go to. The majority of the beaches are all sandy & very nice. Nothing to worry about.h
