Almost all of the beaches on the island of St. Thomas are located within five miles of Charlotte Amalie, which means that even if you don't find a location that works for you right in town, you don't have to travel far to reach another.  Magen's Bay is best known for its excellent facilities, but it will be more crowded than if you were to head to Hull Bay just west of Magen's. 

Honeymoon Beach

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will discover several beaches to consider, though all of them are found in neighboring areas. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on each beach name for more information concerning that beach.

Morning Star Beach

A beach with snorkeling is Magens Bay. Magens Bay, located on the island of St. Thomas, is considered one of the best beaches in the area, featuring more than half a mile of protected, white beaches. With high praise comes many visitors, as the beach area is typically crowded, though the clear, calm waters make the location almost irresistible.

Another good option for snorkelers is Honeymoon Beach. Located on Water Island off the coast of St. Thomas, Honeymoon Beach is an excellent spot for guests of all ages, whether they prefer swimming or simply sunbathing on the shore. Dramatically improved in the 1950s by the leaseholder, the area is decorated with palm trees and immaculate sand.

Emerald Beach: The beach features calm, clear waters from the Lindbergh Bay and beautiful white sand that is perfect for barefoot strolling. Palm trees and sea grapes dot the shoreline, providing shade, while the curvature of the island gives a wonderful panoramic view of green and blue.
