For visiting the beach, guests need to take a roughly ten minute drive.

They strive to reduce their carbon footprint, producing their own solar electricity. During the night, they use powered stored in their Tesla Power Walls. They also enjoy chemical-free gardening, an on-site water filtration system, and more to provide guests and the environment with clean, waste-free surroundings.

Though the hotel may be close to Magens Bay Beach, and the north side of the island in general, it is not recommended to walk there. The best way to travel is by taxi or rental car. The roads are quite windy and extremely steep. There are no sidewalks or walking paths to accommodate travel by foot.

The best place for walking is to Charlotte Amalie or along the central shore of St. Thomas.
