Default Magen's Bay, St. Thomas

Is it really as good of a beach as everyone says?

It truly is picture postcard beautiful. Our son was married there three years ago.

It is beautiful but if you snorkel - Coki Point is better to spend the day. Looking down @ Magen from Moutain Top is breathtaking!

Awesome! Thanks.
Do you just catch a cab there from the ship?

yes it is a gorgeous beach, but it is a bit of a tourist trap- it gets very crowded, and it costs more than other beaches, there is no snorkeling here. If you want to snorkel at a beautiful beach then check out Sapphire or any of the beaches over on St. John Island.

Its very easy to get a cab to Meagans Bay, but depending on traffic, it could take a little while. They also go through downtown on the way back, so if you'd like to get out and shop, you can do that too.

my family and I have been to st.thomas 5 times now, we'll be going our 6th this july on another cruise--maegans bay(however you spell it) isn't all its cracked up to be. it is in like the top 5 in the whole world, but it gets very crowded and well...its a beach and the water is beautiful, but so are all of the other beaches in st.thomas. this one gets very very crowded and pricey, id reccomend sapphire as a great alternative!

Yeah ive heard Sapphire is good too. I like crowded beaches though and price really isnt an issue but I actually might check some other ones out. Thanks for all the help

Hi,

St. Thomas is one of my favorite ports. We've been there many times. In my opinion it is a beautiful beach one of the nicest in the Caribbean.
I recommen planning to spend time there and bring a camera for plenty of pictures.

Which cruise are you going on? Which ship?

Enjoy,

Nancy

Hi,

I've been on Voyager. Had a balcony room. On that cruise we went to the Western Caribbean.

The ship is beautiful. Our cabin was very nice. I remember spending a lot of time on my verandah there.

The ship has a very nice internet cafe and library.

I have to admit that I'm used to ships that are smaller that carry about 1,900 passengers so I found her to be a bit large for my personal taste. But she is a lovely ship. The crew was nice.

You will like St. Thomas. I think because of the ship's size they dock at the naval base in St. Thomas. Smaller ships dock near the shopping complex.

If you like jewelry you will find St. Thomas a great place toshop.

Have a great time.

Nancy

=] Good to hear you had a nice time! Ive been on all the other voyager class ships except for Voyager and Navigator but its still exciting to see the huge ship everytime. I agree, St. Thomas is really nice to shop I have tons of jewelry from there. I think this time i'll hit up the beach instead of mommy's wallet Thanks for the info!
