Default St. Thomas beach question

We normally go to Sapphire Beach while in St. Thomas, but was wondering if there was a nicer beach than that one. We've been to Magans Bay, but thought that Sapphire was better. We don't do anything special, just like to lay on the beach, go into crystal clear water and enjoy the scenery.

What do you got for us?

Default Beaches

Take the ferry over to St John's. Not only are the beaches nicer they are less crowded. Ask a local cab driver at he will take you there. Here is a beach guide.

I think you have already chosen the best beach..Saphire has the most amazing waters I have ever seen. If you want something different, or to some people better, then you need fo ferry over to St John.

I have to second the St. John's suggestion. Take the ferry over and see Trunk Bay. You won't regret it.

Take care,
Mike
