Good with the bad

The beach itself can be dirty. There are rocks to avoid. However, the water is beautiful. It's quiet and tranquil. The locals hang out here.

While this beach was deserted and beautiful, it was very rocky , and literally away from everything. Across the street however is the back end of the Ritz Carlton. Their was a lot of trash and seaweed and j didn't feel safe here at all. Nice to view from the car!

This is a nice little secret. Easy parking under the trees, quiet, visited by locals. Say "good morning" or "good afternoon" and strike up a conversation-a great way to get some local tips and info.

Quiet, secluded, beautiful beach, you have the Ritz on one side of the road with beach and walk across the road to Vessup Beach. No amenities but great views and private.

I love Vessup Bay. Great wind being on the east side of St. Thomas. I have spent many a day lying in a hammock there. Awesome view of all the island to the east.
