You must get to Megens Bay as soon as you arrive! Perfect beach to chill down, before you start your sightseeing! There is, of course a bar, and a snack stand!...hambergers, hot dogs, and my favorite was the chicken fingers/ french fries! The bar tenders...More

This is a truly great place to spend a day or so with the family or even alone. so much to do, sea lion adventure, turtle swim, underwater scuba and even a walk with air helmets, which is really cool.

On this trip we have enjoyed Magen’s Bay twice. It is a great place to go for a beach experience in USVI

Blue water, white sand, picnic tables, restrooms, and a bar make this beach a pleasant area. But there are some no-see-um gnats around sunset so bring some bug spray. Definitely worth $5 and maybe in a day with less than 4 cruise ships in port.

We had a really fun day in Magen's Bay. Magen's Bay Bar was great, and takes credit cards. The Gift Shop rents chairs, umbrellas, beach mats, snorkel gear. All deposits for rentals are in cash. Also, entry to the beach is cash only. Well worth...More

This is an amazing, must-see destination when traveling to St. Thomas. However, be aware of a couple of things. I would not recommend having an open tab there. They added tons of charges to our tab that were false, but at the end of a...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
