Best St. Thomas Beaches
Many Caribbean islands have only rocky beaches or beaches made of black volcanic sand (which heats up fast in the noonday sun), but those in the Virgin Islands are known for their fine white sand. Enjoy the incredible water, sand and stunning views.
Magens Bay Beach (St. Thomas): This half-mile loop of pebble-free sand, boasting remarkably calm waters, is by far the most popular and picturesque beach in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Two peninsulas protect the shore from erosion and strong waves, making Magens an ideal spot for swimming. Expect a lively crowd in the high season.
Sapphire Beach (St. Thomas): This is one of the finest beaches on St. Thomas, and a favorite with windsurfers. Come here for some of St. Thomas’s best shore snorkeling and diving (off Pettyklip Point). And don’t worry about equipment — watersports concessions abound here. Take a moment to enjoy the panoramic view of St. John and other islands.
The half mile of white sand beach at the Ritz Carlton Club is only steps away when you reserve an oceanfront residence in St. Thomas. In addition to the world class service, the hammocks, a lush foliage make this beach special.
