We took a cab to Crown Bay then the ferry to Water Island/Honeymoon Beach (St T, not St J). The beach is okay with 2 establishments for drinks and food. You have to get there early for chairs and umbrellas. We snorkled and saw some sea turtles. The island is still recovering from the hurricanes. Read Less

Traveled to Magen's beach. Drive to the beach was great. Our driver was funny and informative. He made 2 stops for us to take photos before we got there. Magen's beach is a public beach and nicely kept. It has bathroom facilities, a small cafe and you can rent chairs/umbrella. It is a beautiful beach but it is crowded. We were there and I could count 3 other cruise line (from the beach towels)--Holland America, Norwegian, Princess and Carnival. This made it super crowded but the water is lovely. Clear and not too deep. It is an ideal beach for families. Get there early to avoid the crowds. Read Less

Taxis will stop at the top of the hill on the way back to town to take photos of the beach and the town, with the ship in port. Well worth US$20! Read Less

Abi Beach was nice. Only a short ride from port - 15 minutes. The facilities was adequate and beach was beautiful. It doesn't have the best road coming to the beach but it was a fun adventure.

MSC Catamaran with Abi beach stop excursion. The ride was nice enough and the beach was nicely quiet with one small bar, free loungers and plenty of shade trees for me. The boat had snorkel equipment if wanted. The catamaran had to anchor about 200 feet from shore so it was swim or wait in line for the small dinghy, I grabbed a pair of flippers and hit the water.

Went to Megan's Bay. Beautiful Beach! Some damage due to the Hurricanes (main bar was under reconstruction), but a really nice spot. I would not recommend snorkeling - there was not much to see at this beach.

Honeymoon beach on St John's is unspoiled and beautiful. However, we had no way to get there and the trail we ended up taking was not for anyone who has any kind of disability, which I did! Only after did we find out that we could have taken a power dingy, but no one helped us to find that. They had no lunch other than snacks and water or soda so we were starving by Noon. They had small store and a few things we could do butnot much. I would go back if they sorted out someway to get to them and food and drinks (like beer). Read Less

Sapphire Beach was breath-taking. There were signs of the recent hurricane but the water was pristine, the beach was cleared of debris and the staff was A-One! We went parasailing and it was worth every penny!

It was like 10$/pp each way to Sapphire Beach. The water was nice and clear and there is a dead and bleached reef near the beach. When we went it was still without power and bars were serving canned drinks out of cooler and resort was closed. Snorkel gear rental was like 8-12$, you can also rent a lounger and kayak. There is really nothing to see snorkeling so don't waste your time. Maybe if you kayak a long ways out and snorkel it might get better. Read Less

Very nice beach. Promoting it as one of the best beaches in the world is miseleading. But nice enough. RC did a very poor job arranging or failing to arrange accommodations for guests on this excursion. Would go even further. This was a RC sponsored trip which it profits from. Mode of transport was unsafe. Moreover, accommodations were wanting. A beach umbrella, towels and a chair consistent with the standards available at even a 3 star vacation resort should be made available to guests. I couldn't have purchased such amenities even though I was more than ready to pay extra for it at that point. Read Less

Took a short open air bus tour of island then dropped at Magens Bay for 2 hours. No beach chairs, but quiet and scenic beach. Had good food to purchase but a bit pricey- more than $60 for burger for 5 of us.
