Magens Bay, Magens Bay

(4.2/5 based on 4,200+ reviews on the web)
Consistently ranked among the world's top beaches, Magens Bay offers arguably the most photogenic stretch of shore available on the Virgin Islands. The sugary sands and calm waves on the northern coast of Saint Thomas invite you to swim, kayak, and paddleboard. Visually appealing from every angle, the charming coastal spot enjoys the protection of its surrounding park, which offers organized camping and encompasses swathes of mangroves and wetlands. The park also contains several rental venues designed to host weddings, family parties, and other private events. The beach itself boasts picnic tables, food vendors, changing facilities, and several outfits renting water-sport equipment.

  • Beautiful beach, clear sand and clean and quiet sea. Good rental of chairs, ' souvenirs ' shops and craft, bar, restaurant, showers and water sports such as snorkeling and stand up paddle (SUP). The biggest problem there is, exactly, the high demand by tourists who visit the island, making the place a real mess, especially in time to eat or drink anything. Even better would be attending another beach with lower demand from tourists.
