Coki Beach. free and the water is more transparent for snorkeling which was only $10. We had a blast. Its further than the usual tourist beach, Megan's? which costs to get into. They didnt charge us for chairs and really took care of us. Local beach so hopefully some locals taking tokes dont bother you.

I agree, coki beach is awesome, I have been to Megans Bay and Sapphire beach , all very nice, but coki is my first choice.
This year I am trying St. Johns trunck Bay. Can anyone give me advise about this.

I would think Meagans Bay would work for you. If you want a really beautiful beach, you can take the ferry over to St. JOhn, well worth the travel time.

I vote for Megans Bay on St Thomas and Trunk Bay on St Johns

St Johns is quieter and nicer beaches. best bet is a ship offered shore excursion to St John's. Navigating the ferry ride from St Thomas is tricky (figure an hour each way including taxi).

I found the best beach on St. Thomas not to be on St. Thomas at all. The best ones are over on St. John. If you have the time, venture a tour or go it your own. It's worth the trip. You can catch a ferry from downtown Charlotte Amalie, or cab it over to Red Hook, and take the ferry from there.

It's worth the ferry ride to St. John-Trunk Bay is awesome with a great underwater snorkeling trail. We will be in St. Thomas in Feb. for the umpteenth time and thought we'd go to Meegans-never having been. But now wondering about Coki Beach???

I feel St. Johns has much better beaches than St. Thomas. It's very quiet & serene. You do not have to the the excursion through the cruise to get to St. John--we never have. There is only ONE ferry to & from St. John so it's the same one the cruise will sell you. Plus when u do it on your own you can spend more time at St. John/Trunks Bay. i think with the cruise excursion it's only like 3 hrs. And believe me, once you get there you will not want to leave.
