A favorite of windsurfers, the beach has fine white sand and beautiful views of St. John and offshore cays, and offers excellent snorkeling at the reef to the east, near Pettyklip Point.

The beach at Sapphire used to be our favorite. This trip it was rocky/shelly. We were told that a lot of the sand washed away with the storms. They do have a newly renovated restaurant and bar that looked like a fun place, but we...More

This was a nice surprise for us at the end of a treasure hunt attraction. With a friendly bar and affordable vendor on the beach with cheaper dresses for the girls than the cruise port

I went to Sapphire Beach with a Royal Caribbean excursion. I booked it directly through Royal. It started by meeting outside the pier with our bus driver. This bus is open (non air-conditioned) and the drive was about 30 minutes through a beautiful scenic way....More
