Beaches???

Saphire, Meagans, Trunk Bay, Which one has activities? A bar? Bathrooms? Restraunt? Any charges for chairs? So on.

 

All charge for chairs and Magen's and Trunk will charge an entrance fee. No entrance fee at Sapphire. All have activities. At Sapphire there's parasailing and at Magen's there are water toys available for rent. I don't recall what activities were available at Trunk. Perhaps sea kayaks? Someone who has recently been there can better answer that question.

 

All have facilities: bathrooms, showers, etc. Adult beverages are available at all 3 beaches. Sapphire is the only one with a bar, though, because it belongs to a resort.

Sapphire has snorkeling, kayaks, windsurfers, jet skis and you can do parasailing from there. The jet skis are at the marina, but you can ask about them at the watersports booth. Bathroom, yes. There is a small open air grill called Banana Cabana that has burgers, sandwiches and beer, soda that is just a very short walk from the beach. There isn't a full bar or restaurant on the beach at this time, there is one up at the condos by the pool - its about a 10-15 minute walk from the beach. There are servers from that restaurant that come down to the beach and take and deliver orders, a minimum is required - I think its $20 or $25 and there is a 15% service charge. There is also sometimes a pizza person that comes and takes orders on the beach and then delivers, from a Pizza place off site but just a few minutes drive away. Yes they charge for chairs, $7 for a lounge chair.

 

Magens has kayaks, paddle boats and small sail boats. No motorized watersports and its not known for snorkeling - its a sandy beach and bay. There is a bar and a restaurant with pizza, burgers, hot dogs and some other things. They are both in the concession area about mid-beach. There are several restrooms. Yes they charge for chairs: Lounge Chairs - $6 ($5 deposit) and Beach Chairs $4 ($5 deposit). Visit the Magens Bay website for more information http://www.magensbayauthority.com/.

 

Trunk Bay, there isn't a watersports booth here, there is snorkeling and you can rent snorkel gear. There is a snack booth that sells burgers and things and also has beer and maybe rum punch as well as soda, water and so on. There are restrooms. Beach chairs are $7 to rent ($25 deposit), don't think they have lounge chairs.

 

Try a beach guide for photos and more information, http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=st.+thomas+beach+guide&fr=yfp-t-305&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8
