This play is a nice surprise after a visit to the fort. A short $5 ferry ride and you're on a pristine beach clear clean water with a beach bar. Snorkeling was fun saw lots of fish including star fish. If you leave your car at the fort, be aware they close the lot at 3:30

Awesome beach, very relaxing and quaint. Was here for 7 days straight. Can't go wrong with this beach. Usually not too many people and you can always rent a chair and go snorkeling.

This beach was so much fun for my little ones(2 and 6). My son (2) loved the boat ride over to the beach and loved that he could wade into the water and play with some pretty calm waves and views of the sea plane taking off. My daughter (6) loved looking at the sea life as well as all of the possible amenities at the shop. We rented a paddle boat one day and saw a sea turtle! The staff at the restaurant was very pleasant and helpful with decent burgers and frozen drinks! We loved the beer bucket specials! The woman in the boat house seemed like she was in a bad mood every time we went but we didn't let her deter us from having fun!

This little beach is a short water taxi ride over from the Christiansted boardwalk. The water is very clean and warm. We didn't snorkel but we saw starfish, some rays and colorful fish just swimming around. You can rent chairs, towels and I'm sure anything else you need to lay around and do nothing! Mary, in the beach shop, is amazing and can coordinate your trip out to Buck Island.

We ate at the beachside restaurant and the food was very good. Service was good too.

Overall, I would not hesitate to come back to this little gem of a beach.

The hotel is placed on a little Island and is Nice but old, from some rooms you cant see anything because of the Big palmtrees as they dont Cut Down.
They have tried to renovate the rooms but the result is not too good.
We saw a Lot of rats around the restaurant and in front of the hotel.
