Beach recommendation

Recommended Posts

Have been to St. Thomas 4 or 5 times. Love heading over to St. John for the day but wont have time for that this time. This will be the first full day of our honeymoon cruise and just want a pretty and relaxing beach. We like to snorkel but I have been burned twice by going to Coki Beach. Snorkeling there was great, but way too crowded and rude employees both times. For maybe 2-3 hours of beach, swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing time would you suggest Sapphire, Secret Harbor, Megans Bay, or a different beach? thank you!

I second a vote for Sapphire! Good facilities, beach bar with decently priced food and drinks, plenty of shade, water toys and chair rentals. Plenty of beach space and decent snorkeling. It's one of our favorite beaches in St. Thomas when we visit either by cruise or while doing a weekend getaway.

what's the best way to get to and from Sapphire beach?  What is the cost to use chairs and other amenities?

Thanks!

Sapphire!  Not crowded, beautiful water and great snorkeling if you go out from the beach a bit!  We took a taxi last December but don't remember the cost.

Taxi from Havensight (WICO) is $10/pp each way ($11/pp from Crown Bay), taxis are waiting at the dock and will be at the beach for your return. Lounges are $8 - $9/ea, you can find more details on amenities  at Sapphire by using the Search function if you want.
