St Thomas, US Virgin Islands

Sapphire Beach

Sapphire Beach (shown above) gets its name from the color of the blue/green water near the beach, and darker sapphire blue waters farther out from shore. There’s plenty of shade from the majestic palms, and an array of watersports are available.

Although Coki Point Beach is small, it is one of the most popular because of its calm waters, and location. There is a nearby marine park, and the beach offers lots of water activities including boating, jet skiing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Magens Bay is said to be the best beach in St Thomas. You have to pay a small entry fee, and that in no way limits the number of people who come there daily. Beach activities with a touch of adventure include, but are not limited to, sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking.  

Lindquist Beach is another beach choice in St Thomas. Not many people come here, so you can have a little quite and seclusion. Since this is an undeveloped area, food, drinks and water sports rental are not available. Swimmers should use this beach with caution since it is secluded, and not lifeguard on duty.

Secret Harbor is known as being a wonderful place to relax – you will find lots of hammocks and beach chairs along the coastline. There are also plenty of vendors selling food and drinks – so this makes for the perfect “beach day” experience. This is the ideal spot to go diving, as there are a number of dive rental shops on the beach, and nearby area.  

Due to its clear waters, corral reefs, and amazing sea life, St. Thomas is one of the best places in the world to go on a scuba diving adventure.
