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.

Magens Bay Reviews
The best place to get a grand sweeping view of the best beach on st Thomas is not on the beach but on the path up to Mountain Top,the highest point on the island. On the way up the view is superb. more »
As someone looking for a local vibe I was not a fan of this very touristy spot. It reminded me of the springs or an over run Daytona beach. more »
Purtroppo sono rimasta delusa.... leggendo le tante recensioni su Trip e nel web mi aspettavo una bella spiaggia dal mare cristallino.... sicuramente sarà stato il cielo un po’ nuvoloso che non faceva... more »Unfortunately I was disappointed ... reading the many reviews on Trip and the web I expected a nice beach with crystal clear sea .... surely it must have been the sky a bit cloudy not then bring out the colour of the sea but the blue unfortunately did not see ... I've been in the afternoon just before sunset and certainly reflected the surrounding vegetation. The entrance is free of charge.
