Peaceful and beautiful beach

This beach is great for sunbathing and swimming. Beautiful and very clean. Sand is so white and the water is the clearest Imhave ever seen.

Magen's Bay was so beautiful. It's surrounded by the island that hugs it which makes the water super warm and not wavy. We really enjoyed our time snorkeling and basking in the sun. A must visit! They also have a great bar and snack shop.

This is a beautiful gorgeous beach! One of the best in the USVI and now I know why people rave about it. We were there for a week in Nov 2016 so we checked the cruise ship schedule and went to Magens Bay when there were no cruise ships in town. There were probably 50 people on the beach that... More

Totally awesome beach, very calm water and soft sand. It has bathrooms and showers. It has a local bar with food and drinks, bar tenders are on the beach, so no walking. We took the trip with Royal Caribbean excursions for a reasonable price, local trucks take you there for a 2 hour bath. The walk from parking to the... More

The beautiful turquoise water and long white-sand beach make this a crowd pleaser. Off-season (summer-fall) is best to visit but if you do visit on a touristy day, visit far left as you face the water. This is where the locals go and you are sure to escape the crowds. Make sure to visit the snack bar and bar before... More

We had a 2 hr. visit here from our cruise and it was very relaxing. Nice beach with restrooms and changing area. Plenty of picnic tables and covered area which came in handy as it started to rain.

This is the second time visiting St Thomas and mostly because of this beach. It's is beautiful. The water is clear and calm and there is shade trees and benches where you can sit and soak it all in.

We have been to magens bay a few times, once on a cruise and other times while staying in st thomas. They have enough rental chairs either way, it is just more crowded on cruise ship days. It is beautiful there and the water is generally calm. Not a great snorkeling place but the water is clear and beautiful. The... More
