Best beach

Such a stunning beach! Go when there are few ships or it is over run with cruise ship passengers. Great swimming and nice and flat if you enjoy running.

From the cruise pier I paid 8.00 a person for 2 people, this was in an open air type of shuttle. It is 5.00 per person to enter Magen's Bay Beach. It was 26.00 for 2 beach chairs, and, with the return of them I got back 10.00, so it was 16.00 for the 2 chairs. You rent the chairs... More

This is the third time here. There is a small charge per person to get in. There are clean bath houses, food, and paddle rentals. Picnics tables shaded by trees, a large covered picnic area, and life guards. Set in a cove, surrounded by hils, the snorkling is very good.

Absolutely stunning location. Large beach with lots of room. I would recommend going on a quieter ship day if possible as it does get crowded. Ample shade, great bar and restaurant. Water so clear, super flat. Beach service available.

Went to spend some time on the beach. Beautiful area. Went to order food....overpriced but what do you do? Would have been okay except the staff was rude and messed up the orders. Multiple people complaint about the bad service. Bar had great drinks.

Magens is the ultimate beach for walking, swimming, and relaxing. The restaurant on the premises serves great pizza and breakfast sandwiches. The bar does a great job, too.

I booked and excursion to Magens Bay from a cruise ship and only a few of us were here which was great. The beach is absolutely beautiful; it seems like miles and miles of beautiful soft sand and it continues forever while walking in the water. There is a lovely little bar with friendly hosts and pub style food which... More

Although there were quite a few people at this beach when we visited, it seemed very peaceful to my husband and I. It is by far one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever visited. Very clean sand and restrooms. No one was trying to sell you anything aside from a waitress occasionally asking if you would like a... More

A pretty beach on St. Thomas. It runs around $10 for 2 people to get in. It can get crowded so not great for solitude. The water is exceptional with schools of fish and it has good facilities. It is a ways from the main city on the island so an expensive bus trip is required. I found other beaches... More
