Local’s Getaway: Hull Bay Beach

Hull Bay Beach

Hull Bay Beach

Hull Bay Beach is located on the north shore of the island of St. Thomas and is a wonderful place to get away from the crowds of places of Magens Bay or Coki Beach. If you decide to go to this out-of-the way beach you can’t count on a cheap trip via safari bus. You’ve got to have a car or a cab to reach this piece of isolated beauty.

The beach isn’t very long or wide and has a lot of large worn patches of coral that makes it easy to stub your toes in the water. But if you are looking to find a uncrowded beach, this hangout for locals is one of your best choices. Hull Bay’s isolation doesn’t mean it’s deserted, though.

You’ll find a small beach bar, Hull Bay Hideaway, just 50 feet from the boat ramp, serving as an outpost for its larger parent bar just about 100 yards farther back. You can easily find a number of rail drinks at a fair price.  If you want some light bar fare just take a seat the the aforementioned parent bar. You’ll also find a small dive shop, St. Thomas Scuba and Snorkel Adventures, for gear rental and even a barber shop, though it’s only open on Saturdays. If you are looking for something out of the way and with a local flare, Hull Bay beach is a great choice.
