This beach is a must visit. Avoid if too many cruise ships in town. Stop at the St. Thomas Dairy on the way out for a great milk shake.

Great place to go to the beach! Take a picnic lunch. Great spot for a wedding. Food stand serves burgers and drinks and there is some music. A must when in St Thomas

This is the most beautiful place I'd have ever been to in my life. I went to this beach on an overcast day and it was still mindblowingly breathtaking. If you are on St. Thomas, you MUST check out this beach.

We always set aside a day to go to Magens Bay. It's like swimming in a bathtub. Very nice gift shop, beach bar with good drinks and great food. Have a cheeseburger in Paradise!

voted one of the top 10 beaches in the Virgin Island.
State park, with lots of trees for shade yet plenty of beach for the sun bathers. Running, hiking, and camping areas. Bathrooms, food and store amenities.

This is a mile long, smooth sand swimming pool. Go in the morning about 9 am on day when there are two or less ships in port. Go down the beach to the left (southwest) to about the 2nd bath house and park your stuff on a picnic table under the shade about 10 yards from the beach where you can get all the sun you want. Use sunscreen. Grill and bar are ok or pack your drinks and food in a cooler.

Heart shaped beach with a mile of pure white sand. Safe, guarded beach, water sports, food, alcohol. No seaweed. Quiet. Gorgeous views. Always in the world's top ten beaches

Megens Bay its my recommendation when you go through the guard booth to bear left to avoid the tourist congestion from the Cruise ships. I usually go to the last bath house so the facilities are close. The Pizza served at the restaurant is good! a little secret - when leaving the beach stop by the St Thomas Dairy bar for a delicious Milkshake. They will add a shot if you desired.

Voted one of the top ten beaches in the world. There is a small "entrance charge." There is an open bar and gift shop and easy parking.

Also try the Magen's Bay Beach Bar, Cafe and Boutique. On the road leaving Magen's Bay is an Udder Delight Ice Cream and Milkshake place. Have a customized milkshake using your favorite island libation...soooo yummy!

Magens Bay is the most famous beach on St. Thomas! It has beautiful white sand, crystal blue water, and gorgeous northside views. Plenty of amenities on site! Magens Bay does get very busy when cruise ships are in port, so keep an eye on the cruise ship schedule to choose your best beach days!

Not great. Had to pay for every small thing. They took a big advantage of tourists and the beach wasn't great it was ok.

The beach is beautiful, but the admission fees are a bit high. A must for the first time visitor.

What a beautiful place! Just glorious and a must stop while in St. Thomas. The views while driving here were unbelievable! And the beach itself was one of the best I've ever seen. It has been rated one of the top 10 beaches in the world! Rightfully so!

Listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Long enough for a good walk. Hiking trails, great for paddle boarding (there for rent), shops and great bar and island restaurant.
