Every review that I read said that Magen's Bay is one of the Top 10 most beautiful beaches on Earth. I'm not sure why I didn't believe that, but it just seemed hard to imagine that I would actually be able to visit a place so well regarded.

Believe the hype; Magen's Bay is amazing.

The water is crystal clear and feels amazingly good. My wife and I went there on our honeymoon in November, and the water felt perfect. The sand is clean and flawless, there's plenty of shade around, the water is still and calm so you don't have to worry about being thrashed around (just float on your back and forget your troubles). Even the iguanas simply lounge around, so you get to see some cool nature. It really is paradise, as corny as that sounds.

The only advice I can give is to wear lots of sunscreen, because you're going to be spending a ton of time in the water.

When they say this is one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world it is the truth. Services and amenities were were nice and clean. Plenty of opportunities to just walk, drink, eat and enjoy.

Beautiful beach with the softest sand, beautiful flowers, lots of room to park and have a picnic. Calm water, crystal clear. Relax and soak up the sun or play in the ocean. It doesn't get any better than this.

There is nothing to dislike about Magens. When you are neck deep you can still see your feet. Awesome. Very long beach with several pavillions and trees for shade. Beach bar with a hot chick going up and down for orders. Have a snack bar for pizza and burgers. Prices a little high for drinks and food. Several full bathrooms with showers and benches. Plenty of parking. Police monitor beach through out day.
A must see and must enjoy beach!
