If you are looking Sapphire Beach, St. Thomas–then you are in the right place. We are going to show you stunning photos, a relaxing video, and tell you everything you need to know about this famous St. Thomas beach.
St. Thomas USVI is a popular destination in the Caribbean. I has everything you want in a tropical paradise–beaches, blue water, activities and relaxation. One of those beaches which we highly recommend you visit is Sapphire Beach.
Sapphire Beach is located on the east end of St. Thomas. It has amazing views looking out towards the British Virgin Islands and St. John to the west. It’s a good spot for windsurfing, and there are three reef areas just off the shore that are great for snorkeling.
Sapphire Beach Facilities
Amenities include a marina, restaurants and a beachside dive shop, offering lots of rental equipment.
At one restaurant/beach bar is a character named Thor. Yes I said Thor. He serves cold beverages to beach goers at Sapphire Beach Resort and he has a line for everything. He was sporting a beer box hat and had an infectious smile when we met him. A great guy that made our morning at Sapphire all the more enjoyable.
Since I can’t load you up on a plane and fly you to St. Thomas for a beach day at Sapphire, this video will have to do. Take in the sound of the waves, the glowing blue Caribbean water and imagine yourself there…sipping on a rum.
