My favorite port. Beautiful. We took a cab to Magen Bay Beach for the day and loved it. Don't book the tours. There are many cabs at $8 each way. You can rent chairs for cheap. We loved it.

St. Thomas is one of my favorite ports. It is so picturesque and there are so many things to do here. We have been three times as stops on cruises. The first time we did a half day at Magens Bay beach and then walked around town shopping and had lunch. The second time, we just went to Magens Bay and last month we did a catamaran to St. John snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach. All were awesome and I look forward to a return visit!

We visited Magens Bay and absolutely loved it! We've been to beaches in Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican republic and this one was the best we've ever seen. It was beautifully maintained, safe, no one bothered you on the beach. Also, if you walk down to the end of the beach you're completely alone so it's super romantic and private. We would visit again.

We booked an independent tour thru Godfrey Tours (online). This worked out seamlessly. Our first stop was the Gift Shop on top of the "mountain" (famous for it's Banana daiquiri's). This is by far the best place to purchase ALL your souvenirs. The selection was amazing, as were the prices! Also via the island tour we scoped out Magen's Bay, Coki Beach, and Sapphire Beach. Coki Beach was a total "no way" for us...tiny beach with zillions of people and local "salesman" hounding you from the moment we opened the van door! Sapphire was a bit more relaxed & laid-back but Magen's Bay definitely took the cake. Beautiful setting and large enough to escape the crowd if you were willing to walk a ways down the beach.

This was the least pushiest island for sales! You can shop and not be bombarded by taxi drivers and sales people.

If you have the time, get over to St John. Trunk Bay was amazing with visibility at 75' it's the clearest water you'll ever see - on one of the most beautiful beaches you'll set foot on.

Go to the SMOKING ROOSTER for lunch. Avoid the crappy food and rip off pricing at Señor Frogs! A tourist trap. BBQ at the Rooster place is OUT OF THIS WORLD and the drinks were phenomenal. Great family place to eat!
