|About these ratings|
If you want to recline in the sun; choose Magens Bay or one of the more peaceful shores of St. Thomas' southern coast. But if you want to literally swim with the fishes, there's no better spot on the Rock than Coki Beach, located next to Coral World Ocean Park on the northeast shore. The beach is lined with vendors selling quite the variety of goods and services (from hair braiding to meat pies to marijuana), but the translucent waters (some report visibility of up to 100 feet!) are full of tropical fish.
"The crystal clear water and soft sands were ideal for an afternoon of fun in the sun. Local vendors supply food and drinks (including adult beverages)," one TripAdivsor user said. "There are also paddle boards you can rent to explore more of the surrounding area."
On the east coast of the island, Coki Beach can be reached via taxi or shuttle from Charlotte Amalie. Get there early to avoid the crowds that largely come from cruise ships.
