Default Most fun Beaches in St. Thomas, St. John, St. Martin

Hey! I am 18 and going on the Eastern Caribbean Cruise (Valor). My friend and I (male) would like to know the prettiest/most fun beaches to visit while in St. Thomas and St. Martin. We want to snorkel and we want to see a lot of fun activities going on. We do not know whether to go to Saphire Beach or go to St. John to Magen's Bay or any of the other beaches in St. Thomas. What about St. Martin - we want the same type of atmosphere. We have gotten confused reading all the reviews. We just want to know the places where 18 year olds would have the most fun! We would appreciate any suggestions on fun spots!
Thanks so much!

On St. Thomas - we liked Coki beach - nice beach with snorkeling. Magens Bay is prettier but really has no snorkeling
On St. Martin: Orient beach is long, attractive and has MANY activities, lots of restaurants, great people watching and some snorkeling (right in front of Pedro's restaurant, beside the naturist resort - Club Orient). Dawn Beach is pretty and has better snorkeling than Orient beach but is much quieter (also it sometimes has serious undertow/wave action that can make it difficult to snorkel safely)

in st.thomas I would recommend Coki Beach for snorkeling as it is right next to
Coral World and there are always plenty of fish to see as the fish know that the food is plentiful because of coral world which by the way is an underwater observatory.
also if you're beer drinkers stop at a package store on you're way to the beach and buy a styrofoam cooler and fill it with beer.
in St.Martin go to Orient beach as that's where all the action is. there are 4 or 5 bars
and restuarants up and down the beach and drinks are fairly priced. the only problem might be that you may see alot of nudity at orient beach as it is a nude beach.

Been to St. Thomas and very much enjoyed snorkelling at Trunk Bay. Also spent a fantastic day at Divi Little Bay in St. Maarten - a beach and BBQ extravaganza, complete with crab races! Fun for all ages. Enjoy your cruise!

Since you are looking for a pretty, fun beach with good snorkeling i would highly recommend Trunk Bay over on St. John Island
St. Maarten - Orient Beach
