5 Surprising Things to Do on the Virgin Islands

5. Magens Bay Beach

Magens Bay Beach

Swim with your family in the warm water, which is particularly quiet in the summer due to the northwest exposure. Discover turtles, shells and other marine life in the clear ocean. Watch as fishermen wait patiently for their catch in the boats at the eastern end of the beach.

Relax at a table on the sand and enjoy lunch at the beachfront restaurant with an excellent view of the water. The beach has many amenities including toilets, showers and lifeguard patrols. Rent masks, snorkels, and fins to dive under the sea surface in search of aquatic life.
