Spotlight St. Thomas - Honeymoon Beach (Water Island)

Honeymoon Beach is a pretty, white sand beach. The shore is lined with palm trees. Small palm frond umbrella huts offer shade and there is a shed on the beach. The beach is typically surf free and deepens gradually so is perfect for small children. The crystal clear water is inviting and offers fair snorkeling. The beach is usually sparsely populated on weekdays except for a couple hours in the afternoon when a boat charter stops in. It is a favorite for residents on weekends, particularly on Sundays.

Visitors to Water Island must take the small Water Island ferry (max. 25 passengers) which operates daily between Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas and Phillips Landing on Water Island. The ferry docks in front of Tickles Restaurant at the marina. Ferry service is reliable and takes about 10 minutes, one way.
