Explore The Beaches


A vacation in the Virgin Islands is about exploring ALL the beaches. The most beautiful beaches are not in front of any hotel because the best beaches have been protected from development.  There are endless beach options on St. Thomas, St. John, Water Island and the throughout the British Virgin Islands and they are easy and fun to get to!

Point Pleasant Resort has two beaches right on our own shoreline: our own small snorkel beach (Sugar Beach) and neighboring Pineapple Beach. The snorkeling off of our snorkel beach is quite good and we also have beach beds and umbrellas there for lounging in the sun. The beach is very quiet, private and secluded.  Guests can also make a short walk to Pineapple Beach, which sits directly in front of Margaritaville Resort. (All the beaches are public in the Virgin Islands.)

Guests can also walk to Coki Beach, which sits directly behind Pineapple Beach. Coki Beach is one of the most popular beaches and has excellent snorkeling as well.

At Point Pleasant Resort, our staff has taken the time to put together some guides for various St. Thomas activities and attractions including beaches. If you wish to learn more about the beaches in St. Thomas, feel free to visit our guide on the best beaches in St. Thomas or the local’s guide to St. Thomas swimming spots.

And again, one of the highlights of visiting the Virgin Islands is beach hopping! There are many other great beaches on the east end of the island to which our courtesy cars takes guests. One of the best, Lindquist Beach, is just a few miles away. . And we make getting to the beautiful beaches of St. John and across the British Virgin Islands easy. Our drivers will take you right to the ferry terminal in Red Hook (5 miles away). The ferries run every hour all day and late into the evening.

We have many activities that take you to the beach. Whether it is sightseeing and beach tours, enjoying a day sailing trip, or even going on an ecotour, access a list of tours & activities that we have put together for your convenient 24/7 access and instant booking confirmation on our virtual concierge service.
