  • This place is fantastic! The employees are very nice while not being intrusive, the snorkeling is very good (I've seen a stingray here and many colorful fish), the food is slightly expensive but the fish is worth it in my opinion. $20 to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella, or $5 each chair. There are places to sit if you don't feel like spending the money, or brought your own. Would definitely suggest getting there before 10am or else you'll have a hard time getting a spot due to the cruise ship crowds.
  • Coki Beach is a USVI must go. Beware on days the cruise ships come in that it gets very crowded as well as every single other activity on the island. The water is crystal and snorkeling is cheap. You can see great fish and cool coral. You feed the fish milk bones which is hilarious but super cool. There are various food options but the must visit is the "Perfection Connection" smoothie vendor. The gentleman there uses fresh island grown fruit and loads them into your smoothie and lets you pour your own rum! Incredible guy and delicious smoothies. The beach gets populated so therefore there may be some debris (ever been to VA Beach or Venice?) but it is a very clean beach. It is NOT dangerous. Do not let google reviewers mislead you. It is dense in tourist and local population. The locals work hard and sell, sell, sell but a friendly "no thank you" keeps you on your way.
  • Love this beach if you like having chairs and food/drink for families too. Gorgeous water and sand. They give out dog biscuits to feed and attract the fish. Snorkeling in shallow water perfect for kids and novice snorkelers. Many beautiful fish. Coral World next door fun for families.
  • Snorkeling is accessible even for young children or lazy adults like me. Buy a box of dog treats and the fish will nibble out of your hand a blast for my kids. It is quiet on non cruise ship days. The food options are expensive but can be tasty. Deck chairs snorkel and scuba are all rentable a life guard is on duty I think?
  • It's just a beautiful beach all together. Good people, good vibes, and definitely good food. Fun things to do like snorkel with the fish, jet ski, and more.
