Of course, pictures don't do it justice, but you get the idea. A heart shaped strand of blue and turquoise waters at a pristine park where you can rent an umbrella, get a bite to eat, rent snorkel equipment, or just lay out under the...More

Every time we've been to St Thomas we've been to this beach. Snorkling was amazing. Had drinks and a delicious lunch.

Crazy drive to get to the beach. Winding, hilly road. Cost $20 for cab ride from port to beach. Takes about 20-30 minutes. Beautiful beach. Not crowded. Seems to go forever in each direction. Great bar for drinks and food

One of two great beaches on USVI. Nice white sand, rest rooms and changing facilities plus place to buy food/drinks. It is one of the places that is a must-see. There is however a cost to get in and to park.

Was a gorgeous beach. And big! Bar was fun and it looked like the thing to get was fries. Or cheese fries. Or pizza! We didn’t eat but smelled delicious. Paid 5 bucks I think to park and get a day pass. Well worth it!

Maybe because I live 20 minutes from the sugar like sands of Siesta Key I have high standards for other beaches. Magen's Bay is small and there were so many people there we could barely walk around let alone find a place to sit. Paying...More

We took a cab here from our Disney Cruise. I was not impressed. Yes, it's beautiful but it was overly crowded. We sat in the wrong section initially. It was a roped off section for an excursion. Then moved to different chairs once I realized...More

Great beach which is fairly straight forward if you want relaxation. If you are looking for a little bit of snorkeling I would suggest going to the end of the beach where it runs into the hill. It will get a little rocky but at...More

The best way to get to and from Magens Bay is to take a taxi shuttle. There is a taxi stand at the cruise port and taxi stand in Meagan's Bay. They use open air trucks with multiple bench seats in the back. Taxi fare is... More

We went with a group on an excursion through our cruise ship, so our travel fee was included. It was quite the little ride to get there and the road were very steep and curvy. I’m sure you could get a decent priced taxi to... More
