Average beach, but 2 places to eat with bars. One had live music & free beach chairs as long as you patronize their place. Lots of sea turtles there! Not a lot to do other than those water sports, but fun for a day!

My husband and I spent a week in St. Thomas island and beach hopping. We went to Water Island, but it was just okay. We definitely enjoyed exploring St. John more!

We went to water island with our guide and captain Ann Marie. We loved hanging out at Dinghy’s, renting a golf cart, seeing the old bunkers and snorkeling.

We spent the day at this lovely beach - which was one of the few places where you can get a beach chair and umbrella for no additional charge. I would love to go again when we could stay longer.

Not the beach you will hear about when your cruising but it is the beach to go to! Free transportation from the dock to the beach and back. Great food and drinks right there close and a really nice beach!

St Thomas isn't my favorite, Water Island was a good day at the beach with snorkeling and some food stands. The ferry ride was quick and once you reach the island there is a safari bus to take you to Honymoon beach. Honestly I don't...More

Double check their websites for times and connections. There's a ferry from Cruz bay to St Thomas. I believe it only docks at Havensight Mall, the older cruise ship dock. From there you'll have to take a cab to Crown Bay... More

There is an area to play volleyball, but I'm not sure if it's a dedicate court.
