Magens Bay is just one of the reasons why the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas is such a popular holiday isle.

The island’s favorite beach is a curving arc of white sand and bright blue water. It’s protected by a forested arboretum and palm trees, ensuring calm waves for swimming and kayaking.

From the vantage point of Mountain Top, you can easily make out the bay’s unusual rectangular shape and mile of white-sand beach, but the best view is up close from the sand.

Being so popular, the beach has some great facilities, including lifeguards, showers, snack stall and windsurf rental.

A nature trail winds from Magens Bay Road down the beach, just over a mile, taking you through tropical forest and mangroves via boardwalks and well-maintained steps and paths.

Practical Info

Magens Bay scoops into the island’s central north coast, bordered by Tropaco and Picara Points. Charlotte Amalie is 10 minutes away by bus or car
