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.
You will find a large selection of beaches to consider on the island. Whether you enjoy people watching, or you prefer having more of the sand to yourself, you're likely to find what you want. You can click on the name of the beach for a detailed article concerning that section of the coast.
If you are looking for a snorkeling spot, a place where that's an option 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 snorkelers is Lindquist Beach. Because Lindquist Beach is a great secret on St. Thomas, its best feature, apart from the perfect setting, is its probable seclusion. Swim in the diamond waters, snorkel the nearby reefs, or just sit back on the beach and let time go by.
Bolongo Bay: Bolong Bay Beach is privately owned by the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, which accounts for the well-manicured sand and the plethora of beach chairs and umbrellas. Palm trees provide shade and ambiance, while the beautiful turquoise waters invite guests to swim, snorkel, or indulge in watersports.
