St. Thomas Features Over 40 Beautiful Beaches

All around the sunny coast of St. Thomas there are over 40 gorgeous Caribbean beaches to explore. Whether you are looking for a quiet stretch of sand to soak up the rays, a happening hotspot, or a water sports playground you will find the ideal beach for you. Here are a few St. Thomas beaches to get you started:

Coki Point Beach

This gorgeous white sand beach is popular with families and is one of the best places for snorkeling. Dive under the water and you will be surrounded by thousands of colorful fish swimming through the coral reefs. You can even buy small bags of fish food from the vendors so that you can feed the fish while you are snorkeling. Tour companies on the beach can arrange many thrilling activities from parasailing to water-skiing.

Vessup Bay

A quiet and remote white sand beach located at the end of Bluebeard’s Road, this is the perfect place to escape from the crowds. The beach curves along a bay with a rocky outcropping and rugged vegetation including agave plants and sea grape. Head to the east end of the beach, as it is usually less populated than the west end.

Sapphire Beach

Leave all of your stress behind at this naturally beautiful and chilled out beach. Ringed with sea grape trees, Sapphire Beach is a very picturesque stretch of white sand. Ducks and iguanas are often spotted on the left side of the beach near the man-made pond. This beach is very popular for watersports, and at the nearby marina you can rent jet skis or go parasailing for an affordable price.

Turtle Cove

Turtle Cove is home to one of the most luxurious resorts in St. Thomas, the Ritz Carlton. This beach has a number of excellent restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a rum cocktail while watching the sunset over the ocean. Turtle Cove is also a fantastic place to try exciting water sports activities such as kayaking and surfing.

Magens Bay

Magens Bay is probably the most popular beach in St. Thomas and it is the only beach on the island that has an entry fee. The fee is $4 and the funds collected are used to maintain the beach. The water is calm and warm and perfect for swimming and there is a water sports booth that rents paddle boats and kayaks. Beach chairs, snorkel sets and floats are also available.
