On a read from Penny, we went to Megan's Bay (Beach) the last time we were in St.Thomas. It was easy to get to on our own as there are many vehicles waiting just off the pier and you can get there quickly. You will have to pay an entrance fee but the beach and the calmness/beauty is just wonderful..We spend some time there and then we stopped at Paradise Point on the way back to the ship. We have been to St.Thomas 4 times and wanted to try this several times but never left a sufficient time to do it. A great (short) ride up and a beautiful view of the bay and surrounding islands..Enjoy your cruise.
