Discover the Most Spectacular Beaches in the US Virgin Islands

The United States Virgin Islands (USVI) are a true paradise, boasting stunning white sand beaches and mesmerizing turquoise bays. From swimming and snorkeling to sunbathing and surfing, this tropical destination has something for everyone.

Lindquist Beach

is located at the eastern end of Santo Tomás and is a hidden gem with its soft, fine sand and crystal clear waters. It's the perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling, or simply soaking up the sun.

Brewer's Beach is Thomas's jewel and one of the best beaches in the USVI. It has all the exotic ambiance that makes it a must-visit destination. Hull Bay on the north coast of St. Thomas is a great spot for surfing when there are waves from the north (usually between November and March).

There is also an overwater path that surrounds the western end of Buck Island to an observation deck atop a hill, from which the corals on the coast look like dark blue amoebae in the turquoise sea.

Honeymoon Bay

, located within the Virgin Islands National Park, can be accessed by boat or on a hiking trail and has soft white sand, shallow waters perfect for diving, and tall coconut trees that provide shade. Smith Bay is a protected and government owned part of St. Thomas and home to one of the island's true jewels - Smith Bay Beach.

It gets crowded when cruise ships are in port and during the busy winter season, so plan accordingly. The beach also has a self-guided underwater diving trail in Trunk Bay with underwater signs that provide information on coral formations and marine life.

Sapphire Beach

is another great spot for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking or just lounging on the beach in the sun before having lunch at the Sapphire Beach Bar. The crystal clear waters are full of colorful fish and eagle rays making it a prime spot for diving in the Virgin Islands National Park.

San Juan has some of the most beautiful coves in the territory, including Honeymoon Bay and Smith Bay Beach. Whether you're looking for a beach getaway or a wildlife adventure, this is where you'll find fun in the sun this winter.
