When you visit St. Thomas, visiting Magens Bay is a Must!! It is a beautiful tropical area you will not want to miss. It is well worth the time, effort, and shore excursion price to see this restful sight.

Clear turquoise water, beautiful white sand. My husband and I spent a lovely afternoon here. It wasn’t loud or too crowded. It would perfect for families as well.

Loved it--A must see. Clear water, beautiful scenery and the food at the concession was good. Plenty of places to sit in the sun or out of the sun. Something for everyone. Don't miss the chance to visit.

It’s a reasonably enclosed bay helping make the water smooth. The beach is sandy and faces away from the sun so you get plenty of shade from trees at the back of the beach. The seabed is gently sloping making swimming easy. Sadly the water...More

Probably one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen! Highly recommend! White sandy beach. There are bathrooms and a place to grab a bite, have a drink, and buy a souvenir.

Loads of cabs available they tend to be buses. Just go when they’re full. I think it was $8 each way. Plus $5 entry to the beach to help pay for the work needed after Hurricane Irma.

They take credit cards at the gift shop, bar, and restaurant there, although you may have to pay cash at the front gate.

Yes; no restrictions enforced about beer on the beach -- and they have waiters that serve boat drinks from a bar on the beach.
