Day 4 - Maegen's Bay
We may encounter defeat but we must not be defeated. - Maya Angelou
The last day of our trip was spent at Maegen’s Bay – this is one of the most popular beaches in St Thomas. There’s a small entrance fee to the beach and they also have a restaurant and bar onsite. Maegen’s Bay popularity can be attributed to the many tourists that head out there from the Cruise Ships that dork in St Thomas for the day. This was one of the downsides to Maegen’s Bay as it was quite crowded and they had a lot of kids on the beach. I personally preferred the much quieter beaches that we visited (Water Island, Sapphire Beach and Trunk Bay).
Unfortunately, this was our last day in the US Virgin Islands. I had an amazing time here with the girls that exceeded my expectations. The beaches were beautiful and the people were friendly. We did not like the food too much in St Thomas but then again, it could have been just the places where we dined. The islands are quite pricey but that is expected when almost everything is imported. I’d definitely come back to the Virgin Island but this time around, I’d stay in St John and also make time to visit St Croix.
Before I forget this tip - when travelling back home, please give yourself enough time to check in and clear security at the airport. The process took such a long time, it was ridiculous. Do not forget your passport as you will have to go through customs when coming back into mainland US even though this is considered a domestic flight. You can use your driver’s licenses or any government issued ID when travelling to the Virgin Islands but you will need your passport/visa when coming back.
Until next time, stay blessed!
