Sapphire Beach is set against the backdrop of the Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina, where you can have lunch or order drinks. Like Magens Beach, this good, wide, safe beach is one of the most frequented by families. There are good views of offshore cays and St. John, a large reef is close to the shore, and windsurfers like this beach a lot. Snorkeling gear and lounge chairs can be rented. Take the East End bus from Charlotte Amalie, via Red Hook. Ask to be let off at the entrance to Sapphire Bay; it's not too far to walk from here to the water. Vacationers may also want to have a look at Sapphire Village.
