Little Magens

Little Magens

Little Magens is actually part of Magens Bay. On the right along the Peterborg Peninsula, which frames Magens Bay, are a few little sandy coves, the largest is called Little Magens. There is no parking and no road. To access the little beach you must start at Magens Bay. Facing the water at Magens Bay, head right along the beach until you get to the end of the beach and then walk along the rocky shoreline. Little Magens is a pretty beach and is often sparsely populated. Nude bathing is overlooked at Little Magens, but be aware that public nudity, including at beaches, is illegal in the Virgin Islands.

Waded from Magens Bay to Little Magens following the rocky coast (right side when facing the water at Magens Bay). Could also do a rock scramble along the rocky coast - rocks are pretty smooth and low to the water. It was low tide and pretty easy wading, had young kids with me and they were able to follow along without trouble. Little Magens is a small beach, white sandy shore. The water is crystal clear and calm. There wasn't anyone on the beach - it was early morning, so it felt like our private beach. Kids enjoyed pretending we were shipwrecked, standing on a large rock ("the ship") on the beach. The view back at Magens and the whole bay is beautiful.

Greetings,

Made this trip to Little Megan's this month. At the time of this trip, there was no land-based way to reach this beach. (nor did we see evidence there used to be - unless tide level makes a difference) If you don't have a boat, you have to swim-walk (chest-deep water level) the quarter-mile distance from Megan's Beach being careful to stay away from the rocky shoreline. (waves!)

Upon arrival, the beach was a nice, small stretch of sand plenty deep enough to allow some sun protection under the trees. There was a pic-nic table set up and even a trash barrel for your trash. (Although, take-out-what-you-take-in is a much better practice) There was an abandoned catamaran there as well.

This beach is isolated from Megan's Beach, however, you'll notice a couple homes high above one end of Little Megan's with direct views of you.

So, word of caution to those with physical limitations. A windy day and high-tide (as when we visited) will challenge your trip out and back. If your committed to accomplishing some semi-isolation, this beach provides it.

Cheers!
