We went to Magens Beach on Christmas Day! What we were expecting and what we got were two different things. Comparing to the Atlantic Beaches of NC & SC (US). Nothing close! It looked worn and not much beach. The buildings were quite weathered. The cost of the taxi to get there was one price and to get back was another. Please ask for a quote both ways. With all of the reviews we read, we thought we were at the wrong place.

Absolutely the best beach on St Thomas. Clean and well kept. A lot of parking. There is a rental location with chairs,... There is also a beach store with all the extras you may need for your trip. Calm waters.

This beach was listed as a "top 10 in the world". Frankly, I din't see what the hype is about, it was just a beach. Iliked Coki beach with its fish better. And at Magen's beach, you have to pay $2 to park your car, and $4 per person for the privilege of going on the beach! Didn't go back...

World class beach! Absolutely beautiful. It can get a bit crowded when the cruse ships roll in so go early if you can.
