Sapphire Beach, East End

4.3
#2 of 7 in Parks in East End
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.

  • This is a great beach to visit for a half day during your cruise stop. The water is beautiful, and the scenery is fantastic. My main complaint would be that you have to watch where you step at all tim...  more »
  • Cant imagine staying anywhere else when we are on St Thomas, Some reviews say this place is run down but they are restoring and improving daily. Give it a chance!!!  more »

  • THE best beach on Saint Thomas, if you have a choice between Magens Bay or Sapphire pick this beach! Amazing island views, best snorkeling with both shallow or deep water options, easy access, usually quiet and not crowded like some of the other beaches! The property does not allow solicitation by any local street vendors even though it is considered a public beach, this is a big deal when compared to other public beach options. If you want to stay at one of the condos here at Sapphire make sure to get a beach front unit on the lower level nothing beats walking out of your unit 60 feet to this stunning beach! Though some sand erosion has taken place on the south end of this cove, setting up beach chairs under the sea grapes is something we enjoyed during the weeks we spent here.
  • One of the most beautiful beaches in the world!
  • Stunning! One of the most beautiful beaches on St. Thomas... I got married there on Feb. 06 2017 and it was magical
  • Smaller beach, but not a lot of people on it.
