A favorite of windsurfers, the beach has fine white sand and beautiful views of St. John and offshore cays, and offers excellent snorkeling at the reef to the east, near Pettyklip Point.

Beach is right next to private resort so taxis to and from easy to obtain. Lots of shade from trees. Not much to see for snorkeling though - much better at Coki Beach.

We stayed at The Frenchman’s Cove where the beach was beautiful. This beach however is striking. A vision to take in and appreciate. Clean, decent food close by.

We opted for this beach as Megans bay was crowded. Very nice scenery, good snorkeling, nice bar and good burgers.

The colors of the water are amazing, beach is clean and not overly crowded, overall picture perfect. I highly recommend it for those staying in St. Thomas at hotels without private beach access.

We drifted down the beach, away from the restaurant, and there was plenty of snorkeling down that way. When you are approaching the beach, we walked left almost to the end. We swam out and to the left further still. The... More
