Default Megans Bay St. Thomas

We will be visiting St. Thomas for the 7th. time in Nov. but we've never been to Megans Bay. I've been doing some research and come across some negative comments-not maintained properly in spite of the entrance fee,too crowded,over-rated. We are looking for a nice sandy beach with good swimming,chairs and umbrellas,drinks and a snack, and restrooms.
I'm wondering if Hull Bay,Morningstar,Lindberg Bay or Secret Harbour might be a better option. Has anyone ever been to any of these beaches? Or any others for that matter? Thanks for any help

There is a community board like this one at http://www.vinow.com
where the locals hang out. You might do some reading there on places to go.

Thanks Phil&Liz! I had looked at the beach guide on that site but didn't realize there was so much more to it. The message boards have been a great help. Thanks again

that is such a great information site, it has been so helpful.
As for Megans Bay we like to snorkel, and there is no snorkeling there, so i can't give you an opinion one way or the other. My top choices for a beach on St. Thomas proper would be Sapphire or Fishermans Reef
