Magens Bay is said to be one of the most beautiful and breathtaking beaches in the Virgin Islands. Magens bay is a must see! Located on the North ( Atlantic) side of the island, Magens Bay features a well-protected white sand beach stretching for nearly three quarters of a mile. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, as well as a gathering place for locals. The bay is north-west facing which means its waters are usually calm, although storms in the North Atlantic can occasionally create large waves in the winter months. With a sandy bottom this will not be the place to snorkel if you want to see coral but there are generally smaller fish and turtles that can be seen. This is one of few beaches that does charge an entrance fee because of the services provided. The services include lifeguards, parking, showers and bathrooms. There is a snack counter, bar and souvenir shop. Beach chairs, floats, lounge chairs, mask and snorkels, fins, towels, lockers, paddleboards, and kayaks can be rented. The entrance fee is $5.00 per-visitor over the age of 12, free for kids under 12. There is also a $2 parking fee if you drive your own vehicle. Magen Bay is not on the safari route so the best way there if you are not renting a vehicle is with a taxi.
