“Peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Loved this tiny island...no high rise hotels or buildings ruining the sandy beach. Cheap to come over from St Thomas by small ferry, safe swimming, totally relaxing.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We visited Honeymoon Beach at Water Island while on a cruise in October. This beach was highlight of our cruise! It was beautiful, private, and clear water. My only complaint is there were no beach chairs (some benches) and the bathrooms had so many bugs in them, made impossible to stay in there. There may have been bathrooms at bar (we didnt go there). We took the Ron Tiki boat cruise which included this beach, very much worth the money!

“Incredible place for a day trip”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We took the ferry over which is only $10 per person round trip. The boat ride over is very short and nice. Once we got over there we called to rent a golf cart. There is a couple that rent golf carts for $35 for the day and it is a great way to see the island. I would suggest calling a day or two ahead so you can make sure you get a hold of them. We drove around the island from one end to the other which didn't take long because the island isn't too big but it has some great views. We then headed down to honeymoon beach which is incredible for relaxing and you will be one of the few people on the beach. There are also two places on both ends of the beach that serve food which we will try the next time. This was the first time we ever went to Water Island and will definitely go back for the entire day next time we visit St. Thomas.
