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

We spent the day at the beach while our cruise ship was in port. Per tips in other reviews we went all the way to the left on the beach to find more space on the beach. The water is nice and calm and we all had a good time floating in the ocean.

It was a rainy, cloudy, cold day, so didn't get to see the beauty we have heard. We walked a little through the woods, but not too long, so we didn't get mosquito bites.
