Magens Bay Beach on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands is indeed a stunning destination and a popular choice among beach lovers. Located on the Northside island of St. Thomas, it is known for its breathtaking beauty and serene atmosphere. You’ll especially enjoy the views from Magens Hideaway balconies that give you a beautiful full view of the Magens Bay!

 Here are some highlights of Magens Bay Beach that is a short four-minute drive down from Magens Hideaway.

Scenic Beauty: The beach features a picturesque half-mile stretch of soft, white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters, surrounded by lush green hills. The scenery is truly postcard-worthy, making it an ideal spot for relaxation, an early morning walk along the water or a zen-like yoga session or a perfect spot for a family photoshoot.

Calm Waters: The bay’s gentle, calm waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling and various water activities. The lack of strong currents and waves makes it suitable for visitors of all ages and swimming abilities.

Amenities: Magens Bay Beach is well-developed and offers various amenities to ensure a comfortable experience for our guests. There are restroom facilities, beach chair rentals, and food and beverage stands where you can purchase refreshments. Stop by the bar and send well wishes to some of our favorite bartender, Jennifer! Ask for the Jen-Shot, it does not disappoint~

Nature Trails: If you want to explore beyond the beach, there are nature trails that meander through the surrounding tropical foliage. These trails offer opportunities for hiking and wildlife spotting. Be sure to bring your tennis shoes, the climbs can be slippery near the top.

Environmental Preservation: Magens Bay Beach is part of a protected park area, ensuring its natural beauty and wildlife are preserved for future generations to enjoy. The entrance fee for visitors helps support conservation efforts.

Sunset Views: The west-facing beach provides an excellent vantage point for witnessing breathtaking sunsets over the Caribbean Sea, making it a magical spot for a romantic evening or a memorable experience with friends and family. And if you don’t make it down for the sunset, your sunset views from Magens Hideaway are also spectacular and the moon-rising over the British Virgin Islands is a treat each night.

Popular Tourist Destination: Due to its reputation as one of the top beaches in the Caribbean, Magens Bay can get busy, especially on cruise ship days. To enjoy a more peaceful experience, consider visiting during non-peak hours or on days when there are fewer cruise ships in port.
