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.
