Lindbergh Bay, also known as Emerald Beach, is beautiful. Palm trees and sea grape trees line the shore and provide natural shade. Typically sparsely populated It is a great beach for laying back and relaxing. The water is usually very calm; perfect for swimming, wading or floating along. The shoreline provides for pleasant strolls. The beach is home to Emerald Beach Resort and Island Beachcomber Hotel.
Both have neat open air beach front bars for enjoying the trade winds and a refreshing drink. Several restaurants are available for having a nice lunch or grabbing a quick snack. A water sports booth offers kayaks, snorkeling, diving, peddle boats & windsurfers among other fun activities. Families with young children will enjoy the small playground located just past the end of the beach. It is common to see iguanas in the hotel gardens and along the rocky coast close to the playground. Lingbergh Bay is in close proximity to the airport and a short drive from downtown Charlotte Amalie.
The Best Western on this beach needs some work. I did not stay here, but stopped for lunch and drinks. Great conch fritters! Fun bartender (sorry forgot her name)!
Quiet and tranquil
A tranquil beach which has 2 hotels on it. The Emerald Bay and Island Beachcomber. Grat beach bars, snorkeling is not great. It can be crowded when Cruise Ships are in port. Good beach for small kids to play in sand. I much prefer this to Magens as it is usually not crowded. Great for sunset walks. Early mornings can watch cruise ships coming into St. Thomas.
