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. Bring everything you will need for the day, for there are no facilities at this unspoilt haven.

Located in East End, Lindquist Beach is on the East edge of St. Thomas. You should consider stopping by whether or not you are staying in the immediate vicinity. Though it's removed from some of the more heavily traveled areas, tourists frequently choose this beach since it has such a relaxed atmosphere.

How to Access The 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.

Amenities and Ambiance

Panoramic Caribbean views are typical of the stunning shores of Lindquist Beach. An unmarked dirt road keeps these smooth white sands and bright, sparkling waters relatively hidden away from the crowds, so check for directions before heading out. This haven, on the east side of St. Thomas, is worth the trip and it is still close enough to the tourist area for optimal convenience.

There is also a concession stand available. You might also have the option to order some food from one of the local vendors who typically set up shop here.

There are public restrooms at this beach——something you'll appreciate if you bring the kids along. Fortunately, the water here is fit for snorkeling, so bring along some gear if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration. This relatively unknown beach stays pretty empty of visitors to its shores, except for a few who know its secret and come here for seclusion.

Lindquist Beach as well as its availability of amenities and services can be located inside a popular area that can get crowded. Because of this, if you're sure that these amenities affect whether you'll visit, naturally, it's a good reason to visit earlier in the morning well before the crowds do or even going to a more secluded beach away from the major areas. If not, you might miss the chance to use all the amenities which Lindquist Beach has on site.
