Lindquist Beach

Lindquist Beach

One of St. Thomas' most beautiful and pristine beaches is Lindquist beach on the East End of St. Thomas. Undeveloped the beach is accessed by a dirt road. There are few amenities; lifeguard, a couple picnic tables and port-a-johns. Often sparsely populated during the week, the beach comes to life on weekends, particularly Sundays with residents having picnics and parties. The water is crystal clear and typically calm. Soft, white sand lines the shore and a thick tree line gives shade. Snorkeling can be enjoyed on the right side of the beach. In 2006, the Government of the Virgin Islands purchased 21 acres of beachfront property around Lindquist for the purpose of protecting it as a park called Smith Bay Park. An admission fee of $2 per adult is collected.

Beautiful Beach

This is a beautiful beach, gorgeous. Water is crystal clear and pretty calm. It deepens fairly gradually. The shore is soft white sand. Not much natural shade in the middle of the beach, but the right side and left side (of the area where you can swim) has some taller trees that provide shade. The swimming part of the beach takes up about a third, the other 2/3rds has a seagrass bed & shallow rocky shelf all along the shore in the water (left side when facing the water). Not good for swimming but you can still walk along the shore, on the sand, and enjoy the view and keep an eye on the shallow seagrass for fish or even baby sharks - saw one swimming around. Just at the start of the rocky shelf you might see some juvenile fish while snorkeling, also saw a large school of squid - about 35 squid - pretty neat. There is also seagrass on the far right, but deeper seagrass beds so you can snorkel above them, saw some turtles in that area. The swimming area is sandy in the water - great for wading and enjoying a swim. Beautiful scenery. Just a few people on the beach in the earlier part of the morning and then maybe two dozen or so by late morning - it was a weekeday.
