First, let me remind you of a little beach safety. I’m not talking about watching for riptides and currents, heavy surf, although those are extremely important. I’m referring to playing it safe in areas you are not familiar with. If you think there is an opportunity for someone to break into your rental car, or to take things while you are going for a walk or swim, then be on your best attention to not leave yourself in those situations. Take care and use common sense. This beach is no exception. There are places around Lindquist that make it an easy target for someone up to no good.
You can’t call them cookie cutter beaches, though the majority of them on St. Thomas are white sand, wonderful snorkeling, great views of surrounding islands – Lindquist Beach is one sweet cookie. The colors here will have you gazing for hours. And imagine going for a dip in there. Wonderful, no?
Again, entrepreneurs got smart and built two grand resorts on either ends of Lindquist Beach. The Wyndham Sugar Bay Beach Club is at one end, and at the other sits the beautiful Sapphire Beach Resort.
It’s here that many famous TV commercials and print advertisements are filmed. The beach serves as that “Caribbean” backdrop and is always in good light.
Another strong point is that it is barren – mainly because it’s not very well known. And that’s a plus for you. When you come out to the beach, expect few people. So plan early in the day and enjoy this piece of paradise.
As far as beaches on the East End, Lindquist (sometimes written as Linquist), wraps it up. We now head out to the South Side of St. Thomas where there is one beach that allows you to skimp.
