Such a beautiful and clean beach! The water is extraordinary! There is food available along with rentals. Worth the few bucks to spend the day!

Took taxi from cruise port 8 dollars per person each way. And 5 dollar entry per person to get on beach. Totally worth it. Beautiful beach great water. Clear. Rented stand up paddle board and took turns. Had a wonderful day.

We were here for the day on a cruise stop and chose this beach due to its reviews. The taxi to the beach was quite expensive at $8 pp each way, for a 10 minute ride but you know this up front and the taxi's...More

Nice large beach. Couple restaurants / bars / shops. Have to pay to enter. Lots of tourists from the cruise ships so not as secluded as most in the better Caribbean spots.

Beautiful beach. The sand is smooth. No rocks. The view is phenomenal. Cafe service on site. Drinks can come to you while in the water. Would not go when there's a cruise ship in island. That would be crowded.

Beautiful, breathtaking place. Bring a float, picnic, beach chairs and you are set up for a beautiful day at the beach. Also there is a great snack bar if not bringing lunch, bathrooms and chair rentals too. Pray for a few clouds and enjoy.

I was a little skeptical going to the beach as I figured it would have been over run with people. I found it to be very tranquil and not overly busy. The view is amazing, the water is perfect as is the sand. Had a...More

Magen's Bay is a beautiful Caribbean beach, but I think the top 10 notoriety is hype. Things that take away from the beauty: onslaught of cruise passengers, the constant flow of taxis through the parking lot which is right next to the beach, the dirty...More

The island is not open right now. You may want to wait until the end of hurricane season at this point, probably late November. I'm not able to get back home myself as the airport is closed.

Yes we took a safari taxi to Magen's Bay and he actually waited for us for 2 hours as it was late afternoon. Gave him $20 round trip per person including tip.
