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.

Situated in East End, Lindquist Beach is on the East coast of St. Thomas. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Lindquist Beach is one beach that is not an overly crowded, even though it's in a fairly popular area.

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.

The concession stand located here is another lunchtime alternative. Depending on the season and time of day, you may also be able to order some food from one of the mobile vendors who typically set up on this shoreline.

Lindquist Beach does have public restrooms for your convenience. The water here is clear enough for snorkeling, so grab your gear if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface. 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.

Remember to take into account that the area surrounding Lindquist Beach is rather congested, so you may find numerous people competing for the use of the same services.
