Beautiful beach. No rocks or seaweed and water was very clear. Went early in the morning- hardly anyone there. Heard this was the place to snorkel with sea turtles in St Thomas. It didn’t disappoint. Saw a few turtles not too far from the shore. Really cool. Also has some pretty unique shells. Definitely recommend.

So it almost is the top beach on the island. Let’s start with the positives. Bathrooms. Showers. And food trucks. And no one selling you a chair to sit in. It’s a large wide beach too.. great for family’s. No seaweed. Sealift as well.. I even like that it’s next to the air port. It’s cool seeing the plans take off and land.. the bad.. when you look out you see houses in the mountains. It’s not the worst but I like seeing green mountain sides like as if I’m as far away from civilization when on the beach some times.

Turtles, turtles and more turtles!!! Clear water, lots of shade and zero crowds. Dolphins, lots of urchins, fish, more turtles and a view of the planes landing at the airport makes for a pretty cool beach experience.

We love this beach. It's definitely a beach the locals hang out and bring their own picnics because you won't find chair rental here or any vendors. However, there is a food truck on the street that sells amazing Pates and has ice cold drinks. They were yummy and a pretty good price!

This beach is very long and plenty of room to spread out. Make sure to bring towels or beach chairs to use. There's plenty of shade all along the beach so no need for an umbrella. The water is nice and calm here as well, so great for families with small children. If you like to look for sea glass, this is a great place to go as well and we found quite a bit here.

The snorkeling, we always find a lot of turtles here and this beach is known for the turtle sightings and it has never disappointed. I managed to see quite a few turtles, ballyhoo, angelfish, squirrel fish, lizard fish and tons of small groups of fish.

This place does have public restrooms and showers to use as well. Parking is on the street and it's located right by the school. If you're looking for a relaxing quiet day or turtle hunting...this is your place.

This is definitely a locals beach. No chair rentals but there is restrooms and showers. The water was beautiful and there were plenty of trees for sun protection. We snorkeled and saw 3 sea turtles and a stingray so that was awesome. There was a food truck where we got a drink and snack. Just beware you can get a taxi to take you there but we walked almost a mile before we got one to pick us up. We were visiting St Thomas on a cruise. If you visit Brewers Bay just prearrange a taxi pick up.

Brewer's Bay is the best snorkeling spot for sea turtles and you don't have to swim out far to see them. They are everywhere, at least they were on the day we went. It was a magnificent experience.

Incredible! The water was calm and super clear. Minimal debris and perfect for snorkeling.
A lot of sea turtles, rays and fish in the water that would let you snorkel super close!

Beach had weeds, rocks. However there was trees in the back that you could sit under. This beach does not compare to Megan's bay. A lot of loud music, charcoal grilling, large family gatherings, several groups smoking weed.

We make a point of going here every time we come to St. Thomas. The water is very calm so it's easy to swim or snorkel. Pretty good visibility and you'll likely see a few sea turtles, stingrays, or spotted eagle rays in about 20ft. If you're an aviation fan, you can just float and watch the planes take off and land at STT.

They seem to have realized that the humans are the weirdest looking fish ever and probably don't taste good either, so as long as you just be cool and give them some space you can literally swim along with the turtles or rays for 10-20 minutes at a time. Bring your action camera and film a swim-along video.

Having the shower hut just off the beach is great for rinsing off all the salt. There are often a couple of food trucks parked nearby, and we've seen the police driving by occasionally to make sure everyone is having a good time.

Seems popular with the locals too, and is good for a low-key afternoon at the beach.

This beach was our favorite beach of all that we visited in St Thomas. It was calm, we were able to see sea turtles, stingray, flounders, schools of fish and jellyfish. It is not a crowded beach and the shelling is amazing. A definite must see if you are on the island.
