- This was our favorite beach that we went to on St Thomas! So good we had to go twice! Loved it!! Recommend to anyone visiting the island.Written 6 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beautiful hotel with a pretty beach.
Pros : rooms are absolutely beautiful and modern, spacious, large bathroom, has all kitchen amenities.
You are steps from the beach, nice pool nearby, food in the restaurant sunset grille was good, easy to get a taxi around St Thomas
Cons : Lots of mosquitos , especially at night, my Leggs were covered with bites. Be careful to sit in your front balcony. I even had a few mosquitos in the room.
With the exception of the mosquitos I enjoyed my stay at Secret harbour. It’s on a nice beach, umbrellas and beach chairs are complimentary for all guests. They hand you many beach towels to use.Written 5 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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.Written 19 July 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Go to one of the ends to avoid the crowds. Also, avoid the ship days and have a great day.Written 11 August 2022
- Very nice area and has a Marina very close it you choose to take a boat out. We had great food there and enjoyed the beautiful beach.Written 9 August 2022
- Ratings for a beach depend on what you want in a beach. If you want a huge beach with a lot of people go to Magen's Bay. If you want a beach with decent snorkeling, beach waiters and a fun vibe go to Coki Point. If you want an out of the way beach that you are likely the only people there and like to beach comb Hull Bay may be the beach for you. On the day we visited there was one other couple there that were tourists. There were a couple of locals that were working on a boat and that was it. As far as the water goes it is very rocky, so you can snorkel, but you have to get past the rocks. There is a boat ramp that you can walk down to get into deeper water. There are several small boats anchored in front of the beach, no lifeguard, and no designated swimming area. There are piles of small rocks in islands on the beach that offer good beach combing. I read a review that said there were bathrooms available, but I didn't see them. There is a bar/restaurant across the sandy, one lane road that is open during the day and serves food and beverages. This is the one place on the island that I have seen surfers. The surf breaks outside the bay on the left side and it was interesting to watch the surfers. Just a warning, if you take a cab to get here it may take a while to get one to pick you up. This might not be the best destination if you have to be back at your cruise ship by a certain time unless you rent a car.Written 5 March 2020
- Great quiet beach to relax, snorkel, swim. No food or drink vendors, so make sure to bring drinks or snacks.Written 24 May 2022
- Went here on a Friday evening at sunset. It is popular with locals. Visiting here will give you an island vibe. Best to leave before it gets dark as the streets are narrow, and if you are walking, you want to be safe. Local vendors available that provide snacks and drinks.Written 9 July 2022
- It's impossible not to notice the beautiful water on this beach while leaving the STT airport... yet it took us 2nd trip to St Thomas to finally come here and spend some time.
There is some parking along the main street or you can park at the Emerald Beach Resort, which has also parking available to outside guests since their restaurant on the beach is also open to everyone - we opted with the latter.
Portion of the beach is directly in front of the resort, which is accessible of course to anyone since beaches are public, but then there is also a beach chair rental business as you continue along the beach. Didn't try them but they played some great reggae music and the vibes were good - there were some guys selling weed but a simple no thank you is all you needed to say.
The food and drinks at the Emerald Beach Resort were of decent quality as well but some other non-resort food joints are closer to the beach chair rental business if that's more to your liking.
Bonus: the highlight of the beach is the taking off planes on the STT airport - in my modest and personal opinion far greater than St Maarten!
TIP: the hotel beds are for the hotel patrons but no body checks that... although very bitten and in desperate need of TLC it was a welcome "added value" to visiting the area, as cheap on our end as it sounds :PWritten 29 October 2021
- Visit Lanai restaurant while you are there! I absolutely LOVE the food there. Amazing sunset pictures! I make it a point to go there at least 1 x each visit!Written 16 March 2021
- First off, let me say that we did not see any sand on this beach. I am not sure if this was due to high tide or if storms have washed away the beach. Either way, it is very rocky. We saw a few surfers getting beat up in the waves, and three friendly local ladies enjoying the view. If you can make your way down here, it is possible you will have the whole place to yourself. It is not an easy trip, and not for everyone. Please see my review of Mermaids Chair for all the details. The best advice I can give you: do NOT miss the final 4 pm shuttle pickup at Sandy Bay Beach unless you really want to test your physical fitness. There are far more beautiful and convenient beaches on St. Thomas, but if you have a sense of adventure, this one is for you.Written 23 February 2021
- Morning Star Beach is 100% closed until structural completion of the new Noni Beach Resort. Late 2022. There is absolutely no land access to this beach. The resort and beach are bordered by private properties and private residential driveways. Please be respectful and do not attempt to gain access via these posted drives. There is only one access through a security gate which does not allow public access.Written 24 June 2021
- We stayed at Limetree Beach Resort, so this was the beach at which we spent the most time. There were plenty of beach chairs at all times. There is a bit of a rocky ledge not too far into the water, but once you get past that, it's just awesome. The salinity of the water is awesome on St. Thomas. The snorkeling was fun since there was no way you could sink. The rip tide was strong while we were there, but we did just fine. The sand was a little rocky and had sea shells, but where the water touched, it was silky. We had a wonderful time there. The sound of the water lapping at the beach put us to sleep every night.Written 12 December 2021
- Vessup Beach is in the process of being upgraded -- the garbage has been picked up, and it's being cleaned and raked. There are multiple picnic tables under shade, and there is now a Jungle Float anchored offshore. The Float provides hours of water fun for kids, for the reasonable price of $25 per day ($15 for one hour) -- trampolines, high dive, slide, swing. We spent a full day there and the kids had a blast.Written 21 March 2019
- Pretty but small, rock-filled beach, hidden away behind a forest. It was quite a hike down-hill to get there - with lots of rocks and tree roots - so I’d recommend tennis shoes. The snorkeling was alright, very few fish the day I went, but very rocky so as an amateur I wasn’t very comfortable in the water. I took a walk looking at all the interesting rocks, shells, and brain coral, but that’s about all there is to it.Written 17 March 2022
