Since this is one of the main hang outs of the locals on St. Thomas, you may find it a tad crowded from time to time, and especially on weekends. Think about it – great expanse, fine location, facilities nearby, including food and shade – it’s practically perfect. But we’ve had some reports that it isn’t being kept up. Have you been here and if so, what did you find? Let us know by contacting us here using the menu. We’ll let you know what we hear so you can enjoy the best. And granted, St. Thomas has some of the best in the world.
Traveling up to the northeast near Coral World, is another excellent beach on St. Thomas. It’s called Coki Point. As soon as you set foot here, you’ll fall in love. The sand is simply grand – high quality and clean.
What makes Coki Point so special is that it has a beautiful beach where the whole family can hang out the whole day; it has a wonderful rock outcropping which makes for some of the best snorkeling on the island; there is Coral World nearby, in case you want to see more sea life up close and personal; and it is well located.
The water is crystal-clear and warm. And if you decide to snorkel, you’ll be in for a treat. Just below that transparent surface are thousands of beautifully colored fish, swimming among great coral formations. The rocks are great, but check out around the Coral World underwater tower as well.
And the locals are in on the act as well. They have small zipper lock bags of food you can take with you while snorkeling to feed the fish. Take that underwater disposable camera!
From the beach you’ll see Thatch Cay, just offshore. That’s a trip in itself!
Because of all these pluses, there’s a minus. Coki Point Beach is often crowded. The bus stops right in front of Coral World. So watch your personal items, but enjoy your day!
