We took a taxi from Bluebeard's Castle to Magens Bay for $8pp. To enter the park was $5pp. In December, the beach was virtually empty. There were picnic tables, restrooms, showers,and change rooms -- free of charge. There were chairs and kayaks for rent, a snack bar with a fair variety of food, and a bar with a wait person... More

This beach is absolutely incredible and has a bar, snack shop and souvenir store on the sand. The waitresses actually go in the water to serve you. Not very crowded on certain days... Loved it. 1 of the most beautiful beaches we have ever visited.

All 7 of us (2 Parents & 5 "20-somethings" "kids" Lol) Went to Magens for a full day. We packed sandwiches and brought beach blankets. The water at Magens is calm, shallow, and good for swimmers of all skill levels. There are lots of fish, so bring a snorkel. There is minimal shade on the beach, so bring proper clothing,... More

Please take david's tour to see this bay from 6 angles. If you just drove up to this place you are missing out on view that pictures will not tell the story. This beach is a real gem of this island.
