Best beach on the Island. The water is calm, the views are incredible and the bay is beaming with sea life. Can not beat Meghan's Bay!

Pictures do not do this place justice. Such a beautiful beach and it is well kept. Maintenance crew onsite daily keeping it takes up and clean throughout the day. Life guards along the entire beach and plenty of room to spread out. The bar on the beach is excellent. Bar tenders Brandon and Aaron and wonderful and so friendly. They... More

A once in a life time experience, the best beach featuring the purest aqua water in the world, softest white sand and pleasant calm waves. The crowds are there for the same reason but they come and go in 3 hour intervals from the cruise ships Megan's beach is large enough to accomodate where you never feel cramped. Pain killer... More

Beautiful water and beach. We had a car so we drove there and only had to pay to get into the park. Changing rooms and restrooms, chair rentals and a little bar and grill that was really good. We loved it. Also met a great couple there who had just gotten married.....still trying to contact them! :)

We spent two great days here and had a blast! Great bar, decent food, and great beach. Chairs are high priced for me, but worth it! The water is great, snorkeling is good, beach is first class! Painkillers rock!

Magens is huge, it's beautiful, it has full services including rest rooms and camping, and it's crowded. But go, you have to see it.

Lovely beach along the northern shore of St. Thomas. If entering by car, you will have to pay a fee. Best to either go early on days that the cruise boats are in port or avoid all together as it is a very popular destination.

Beware of Magens Bay when cruise ships are in town, very very crowded. We love the pizza they sell here and always make a point of coming here for that.

There is an entrance fee. The food and drinks are over priced. The taxi to and from there is expensive. The beach area is not as good as any of the other beaches we visited. Mostly it's a family beach for residents. We paid $36 by taxi round trip, $5 each to get in. The burger was $11. Fries $4.... More
