Lindquist Beach is one of St. Thomas' most beautiful and pristine beaches. It is part of a protected 21 acre area called Smith Bay Park. The gorgeous, crystal clear, turquoise water is perfect for swimming. Heading west, the swimming area gives way to another area of the bay, a very shallow shelf with tide pools. The shore is covered in bright white sand with a faint touch of pink. The sand is soft and perfect for a game of Frisbee, building sand castles, strolling along the shore or just sitting back and enjoying the fantastic view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Snorkeling can be enjoyed on the right side of the beach. Looking for natural shade while hanging out on the shore? The right side has a coconut grove and the left side sea grape trees. The middle area has very little shade as the tree line is mostly low lying brush. Amenities include lifeguard, picnic tables and bathrooms. Two sheds are available for events and parties; rental on sheds are $50, advance reservations required. Often lightly populated during the week, the beach comes to life on weekends, particularly Sundays with residents having picnics and parties. Admission fees: Residents with id $2. Non-Residents $4. Car parking $2. Children under 13 are free. *Note: Price for Non-Residents will be $5 as of February 1st, 2016.
