We have been to many famous and beautiful beaches around the world, and this makes the list! The turquoise water is so still and clear. The white sand beach was almost empty on the day we visited and it was like the promised land!

Such a pretty beach, fee was a little high but worth it - charge for each person plus the car too. $5 per person plus $2 for car.

Oh this beach was absolutely beautiful . So serene and tranquil . The water was crystal clear. You can rent chairs, lounge chair and just enjoy the scenic view as the gentle Caribbean winds blows. I would most definitely go back.

The color of the water is a pure aqua and the shore seems to go forever. Is family friendly. Still is as beautiful as it was thirty five years ago!

Great beach, very clean. Just over crowded but worth the visit. Watch the ship schedule if you are staying on the island!

Soft sand, beautiful views, nice facilities. We even saw a turtle while snorkling. Probably one of the better places for a low key day.

We had planned on going to St. John's, but after a long day the day before, we stayed local. This is a beautiful beach and swim. We just hung up our hammocks, laid around and snorkled. Lots of amenities.

Can't express how beautiful this beach is. Long stretch of sand, Crystal clear warm waters. Ideal location for snorkelling. We were in the water and a turtle popped his head up beside us and went on his way. Fantastic. We took some great photos here....More

Yes we took a safari taxi to Magen's Bay and he actually waited for us for 2 hours as it was late afternoon. Gave him $20 round trip per person including tip.
