About Magens Bay
Great For Snorkeling! Water Is Calm And Scenery Is Beautiful
Voted by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top ten most beautiful beaches in the world, Magens Bay is a horseshoe shaped bay with beautiful sandy shores and clear waters. Popular activities include swimming and snorkeling. An additional bonus is that this beautiful beach is relatively uncrowded as it is outside of the normal tourist circuit.

Great beach! Nice sand and clear, blue water. The snorkeling wasn't that great as there weren't too many live corals or rocks, but that makes it a nice swimming beach with plenty of shallow water. Since it's in a bay, the waves are not big and there's no scary current, so great for kids. The restrooms and shower facilities were well maintained also.

Certainly, a tourist haven. Sand and sun couples with beautiful clear waters to make this a fantastic location for swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing. Don't forget the sunblock! I got fried here because I forgot it and thought I could get by without it. Nevertheless, a good time was had by all. Good Journeys!

Hands down, the most beautiful beach I've ever visited. It is quite a ways from Charlotte-Amalie, but worth the trip. Go to Mountaintop and take in the views. Be cautious of taxi drivers...charge you one price but then want more money once trip is over. Worth the trouble though, to tour the island.

Relaxing, white beaches and clear water. Best visited when there's not ship in port. You don't need your snorkel mask to see the schools of fish swimming around you, but take it anyway to see the fish hanging around the rocks. And be sure not to get to close to the diving pelicans :-)

Voted one of the prettiest beaches in the world, Megan's Bay is definitely worth a visit if you're at Saint Thomas. It can get crowded, so I actually preferred to admire it from one of the neighbouring windy roads, but any way you want to do it, the beach is worth a visit.
