Magen’s Bay, St. Thomas USVI
Magen’s Bay Beach has been voted over and over again as one of the world’s top ten most beautiful beaches, offering a half mile loop of soft white, pebble-free sand, calm waters and a beautiful view of the mountains that protect this bay from erosion and strong waves.
Magen’s Bay is the most popular beach on St.Thomas, and often runs as stiff competition for Trunk Bay on St. John as the world’s most beautiful beach. With warm, calm, crystal clear waters, Magen’s Bay is an ideal spot for swimming. A spot on the beach will cost you a few pieces o’ eight ($4 per person), but the restrooms are clean and there is waitress service while you lay on the sand with your toes in the water. There is no dock, so if you come by boat, the park service wants you to anchor a good clip from the beach so as not to interfere with swimmers, paddleboarders, and sun worshippers, so you’ll be burning big calories on the swim to shore. If you swim in, there’s no fee to enter the beach, and the food and gift shop is worth the swim. We highly recommend Magen’s Bay!
