Sapphire Beach, East End

4.0
#3 of 15 in Beaches in St. Thomas
A versatile destination, Sapphire Beach on St. Thomas offers an idyllic spot to rest and relax, as well as engage in water sports. Lined with sea grape trees, the beach offers a thick shade and silky white sand. Swim or snorkel near the rocky cliff on the right side of the beach, where shallow water ensures good visibility of a coral reef. Rent wind surfing gear, kayaks, and jet skis, try parasailing, or get a snack from the bar and grill.
