Spend free time relaxing on the beach at Magens Bay, perhaps the most photogenic and celebrated stretch of sand in the U.S. Virgin Islands. On the way there in an open-air safari-style vehicle, you will pause at Drake's Seat, a breathtaking vantage point that offers commanding views of Magens Bay and the sea beyond. It is said that the English explorer and privateer Sir Francis Drake watched over the harbor from there in the late 1500s. You will enjoy an even closer look at the bay while relaxing on the white-sand beach that rims it. This idyllic beach is more than 500 yards long so there is plenty of space for you relax. You might bask in the sun, stroll along the shore, swim in the impossibly blue sea and read in the shade of a coconut palm. If you wish to be more active, snorkeling gear, paddleboards and kayaks are available for rental.
