The shoreline is smooth, soft sand. A beachside restaurant and bar is available for refreshments and lunch. A watersports booth offers paddle boats, kayaks, sailboats, jet skis and more. Chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear and floats are available to rent from the hotel. Early in the am and in the afternoon Morningstar offers a great view of cruise ships and boats coming into and out of the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. Morningstar is home to the Morningstar Beach Resort and its sister resort the Marriott Frenchman's Reef.

This is an outstanding place. However, no notifications exist about it being closed to the public until renovation is complete.

This is out least favorite beach on the island of St Thomas. The water can get dirty and rough. The bar is exceedingly expensive ($12 drinks with 20% gratuity mandatorily included. And they taste bad). There are no real facilities. The showers are basically foot washers and the bathrooms can be nasty. The beach is littered with trash and no one seems to clean it up. Unless you are staying directly on the beach, this beach is a PASS! We have dozens of other gorgeous beaches. Don't waste your time.

Hiking Tips

  • Tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Avoid hiking or swimming alone.
  • Allow for sufficient time to explore, swim and rest.
  • Remain on park trails – some trails cross private property, do not trespass into private property.
  • Wear cool clothing, comfortable walking shoes. Sandals are not recommended. Sneakers are your best option.
  • Protect yourself against the sun and insects.
  • Bring water and snacks.
  • Do not leave items or garbage on the trails. Make sure you leave with all the items you brought with you.
  • Do not remove anything from the park property; this includes but is not limited to shells, rocks, artifacts, flowers, plants and animals.
  • Pace yourself to prevent fatigue. Watch footing on wet rocks and trails made rough and slippery at times by heavy rainfall.
  • Do not eat unknown fruits, nuts or berries. Some plants and fruits are poisonous and can cause allergic reactions. Do not touch unfamiliar plants. Avoid handling or picking plant life that may harbor stinging insects, cause rashes, scratches or skin punctures. Many plants have thorns beware, look but don’t touch. Some ground covering shrubs cause severe itching – it is in your best interest to stay on trails.
  • Do not climb on fragile historic structures. Leave artifacts in place.
  • Hike early and return early.
