Each of the beaches in Red Hook differs from the next.  In some areas you'll find fine-grain sand that is soft to walk on and leads out into the clear waters making it acceptable to swim without some sort of water shoe.  Other beaches are rocky and better for people participating in watersports or beach combing.  

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find a large number of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for vacationers who enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the name of each beach to get additional information about that part of the coast.

Lindquist Beach

A location that's good for snorkeling is Secret Harbor. As the beach is connected to the resort, guests should utilize local signs off of Estate Nazareth Road.

Another top pick for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Cowpet Beach. Located on the southeastern coast of St. Thomas, Cowpet Bay features a well developed beach, lined with palm trees and white sand. The nearby St. Thomas Yacht Club guarantees that luxury yachts will dot the bay waters, though the spacious waters guarantee that guests can enjoy the quiet waters.

Sapphire Beach: Sapphire Beach is located on St. Thomas and features soft, white sand perfect for a beach stroll or sunbathing. Snorkeling at the offshore reefs is popular and a nearby dive shop rents equipment and beach chairs.
