Boy, I'd like to know the answer to your question also. Last year, when we visited St. Thomas, we took a taxi to Sapphire Beach (not the resort) and had a wonderful, relaxing day. Chair rentals are available on the beach. There are no restaurants/bars on this beach, just a small store that sells souvenirs, snacks and beverages. Maybe because there are not a lot of bars, the beach was not crowded...it was beautiful and nice to get away from the party crowd for awhile.
