A relaxing place to spend the day with friends. Clear water, and nice white sand on the beach. It can become quite the party atmosphere on weekends.

Visited in December 2017. It is great to see all of the new growth on the hillsides and the rebuilding. Still much to be done. The beaches and bay were quiet but not for long, I'm sure.

This was our 3rd trip to White Bay and so happy to see it as beautiful as always after Irma. Make your way there for beautiful sand, perfect water and lots of fun.

Came here by sailboat. What a beautiful white sand beach that seems to go on forever! The water is so clear you see the marine life under your boat. If you're an avid hiker, Grand Harbor is a mile plus away over some steep hills....More

Nothing really to do except to,drink and hang at the beach, save the $200 and stay in St. John. Safer too. Our drinks were drugged at the one love bar

St. Thomas Boat Rental - we were a family of four and took a smaller vessel. They have boats to handle larger groups and will pick-up at any of the USVI or BVI if memory serves correctly.
