All of the beaches on St. Thomas are public, and nearly all of them are backed by resorts promising views of the sea.  No matter which beach you choose to spend a day at, you'll encounter warm, calm waters, and sand that you can sink your feet into.  Still, each has a personality all its own.  Some beaches are better for snorkeling than swimming, while others make clothing optional.

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find several beaches to consider on the island. Regardless of whether you'd rather be part of a busy beach scene, or you'd rather find a more secluded spot, you're likely to find what you want. Just click on specific names for detailed information about that particular stretch of sand.

Honeymoon Beach

One beach with snorkeling is Hull Bay. Located on the northern coast of St. Thomas, Hull Bay offers visitors a remote beach experience, relatively popular with local surfers. Amenities are simple and while there is a local restaurant in the area, the beach does not get overly populated with tourists.

Another good option for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Lindquist Beach. The beach is accessible via a small road off of Route 38. As it is an unmaintained dirt road, cars should have four wheel drive.

Bolongo Bay: Access to the beach is limited to Bolongo Bay Beach Resort guests, as the resort is located a few feet from the beachfront itself. Guests should take Frenchman Bay Road to Water Gate Road, which leads directly into the resort's car park.
