All of the beaches on Water Island are open to the public, and because they are rarely overpopulated visitors often feel as though they are on their own private stretch of sand.  Options range from soft white sands to slightly rocky and rugged, so taking into account what you'd like to accomplish on your beach outing, you'll have plenty of options.  

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find several beaches to visit on and near the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for visitors who enjoy the underwater scene. You can click on each beach name for a detailed guide to that specific beach.

Honeymoon Beach

A local beach where you may find people snorkeling is Emerald Beach. The beach features calm, clear waters from the Lindbergh Bay and beautiful white sand that is perfect for barefoot strolling. Palm trees and sea grapes dot the shoreline, providing shade, while the curvature of the island gives a wonderful panoramic view of green and blue.

Another top pick for snorkeling fans is Morning Star Beach. Morningstar Beach lures guests to its shores with pretty white beaches and exciting entertainment. You'll find plenty of development along these shores, as resorts are a beachfront mainstay.

Brewers Bay: Brewer's Bay is located in close proximity to the University of the Virgin Islands and the St. Thomas airport. Cars should take the Brewers Bay Road to the beach area, where a car park lies directly across the street.
