My wife and I were recently on a cruise vacation and revisited the Magens Bay Beach while in St Thomas. We have been to St Thomas many times and regularly visit this wonderful beach. The sand is very smooth and withour rock and shell. The water is calm and crystal clear. There are changing facilities and bathrooms as well as facilities for food and drinks. We highly recommend this beach and will return. It is our favorite beach of the many we have visited in the Caribbean.
