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.

The beach and view is beautiful. The hurricane damage is still evident but they are steadfastly working to get everything cleaned up and ready. The beach was pretty rough but beautiful. Not crowded. Quiet and peaceful.

Sapphire is my favorite beach in St. Thomas for snorkeling. The reef is majestic. I always find turtles to swim with at this protected beach. The view is amazing!
