  • I absolutely love this beach. Been here many time. There are a variety of vendors renting and selling things like beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, wonderful food. I've had the best red snapper ever picnicking on this beach. The snapper was caught in those waters a d grilled under a Palm tree and Search with beans and rice and a bucket of beer. It is also next to an exhibit called coral world so the snorkeling is also exceptional.
  • Coki Bay's beach on the northeast side of the island is a good example of the island's determined recovery from Irma, where the beach side concessions are serving lots of fare and renting chairs to anyone that wants to enjoy the quintessential Virgin Island sand and surf. And the dive shops are renting snorkeling masks and fins so visitors can witness the beauty and resilience of the nearby reefs up close.
  • This is what I always imagined Caribbean beaches to be, with its spotless white sand, clear beautiful waters, variety of coral and fish, and multitude of amenities. If you’re looking for a quiet and private beach, Cokie Point might not be for you (especially during cruises.) But it is an absolutely gorgeous beach, even when it does get crowded.
  • If you're looking for a nice beach with lots of sealife to view while scuba diving, you're in luck. There are an abundance of fish and other sea creatures just below the water's surface - if you're lucky, you may even see an octopus or two. The fish are super friendly and will literally eat out of your hands. So, all-in-all, I would recommend stopping here for a few hours for a cruise excursion.
  • This beach it beautiful. I wish I was doing the review on my phone so that you can see some of the pictures that I took. the water was warm and clear and clean. there were fish that will swim right up to you. the service on the beach was amazing! I think her name was Mary. Loved her.
