Why not visit the beach guide at http://www.**********/stthomas/beaches_stt/ it has pictures and descriptions, then you can narrow it down to the ones you like best.
For more information on the Virgin Islands visit http://www.********** the best guide to St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John and Water Island. Includes a Cruise Guide to the USVI (ferry info, taxi rates, beach guide, dock info, cruies ship schedule and more).

Make sure you check out Megans Bay in St Thomas but there are several that combine scenery and snorkeling from the beach

I was not impressed with Megans Bay at all. I had been told that it was so gorgeous and not to miss it. I would rate it very low compared to other beaches on the Caribbean.

We quit going to Magens years ago when it got too crowded and dirty. I understand it's cleaned up a lot, but we prefer Sapphire Beach.

The best beach for swimming and snorkeling, in my opinion, is Trunk Bay on St. John. We've been all over the Caribbean and it was the best we ever went to. It takes a while to get to ( taxi to the ferry, ferry to St John, taxi to Trunk Bay) but it's worth it. Just give yourself enough time. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to go each way.

Coki Point Beach is to me the best beach on the island it is nice and quiet and pictue perfect. Also after taking a dip it's a short distance to Coral World...

We were at Coki Beach for snorkeling and thought it was perfect. It is a smaller beach, but very clear and not crowded. There were bathroom facilities. Was picturesque as is all of St. Thomas. Short walk to waverunner rentals. They are around the corner from Coki Beach and are not allowed in the beach area.
