Point Pleasant Resort: Area Guide

With incredible views, beautiful villas, on-site beaches, and fantastic amenities, guests of Point Pleasant Resort will see why we’re rated #1 of St. Thomas East End Hotels. Point Pleasant Resort offers three pools, three St. Thomas beaches in walking distance, and watersport rentals on site. Our restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and our on-site spa offers services and fitness classes. In addition to all that we have right at the resort, Point Pleasant also provides complimentary transportation to select St. Thomas areas and beaches. We’ve put together a guide of area attractions to make the most of your St. Thomas vacation with us at Point Pleasant Resort:

Red Hook- The Red Hook area of St. Thomas features conveniences, shops, and dining, and the best part for our guests is that transportation is free! If you’re in need of services, Red Hook includes a drug store, doctor’s office, postal service, and convenience store. Red Hook has St. Thomas souvenir stores and lunch spots during the day, but it’s best known for dining after dark. Red Hook is one of the few areas on island that comes alive at night, and it’s the most popular for bar hopping and late nights. Evening dining is perfect for families and the area is safe for night owls. Red Hook is also home to the main ferry terminal in St. Thomas which provides service to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

East End Beaches- Our guests at Point Pleasant will also enjoy complimentary transportation to East End beaches which are among the best beaches in St. Thomas. Coki Beach is also walkable from our property if you’re looking for a stroll, and it’s equipped with watersport rentals, beachside dining options, and great St. Thomas snorkeling. Lindquist Beach (Smith Bay Park) is an undeveloped beach that is preserved by the Magens Bay Authority, providing a true oasis with spectacular views of St. John. Sapphire Beach features facilities, rentals, and beachside food and drink service, not to mention the beautiful blue water for which it’s named and abundant coral and marine life for snorkeling. Point Pleasant guests can experience all of these top St. Thomas beaches with a convenient and complimentary short drive.

Magens Bay- Twice a week Point Pleasant Resort runs a free shuttle to Magens Bay, known as one of the top 10 beaches in the world and the most well-known beach in the Virgin Islands. You will want to find out what all the fuss is about and make the journey to this mile long piece of paradise. In addition to soft sand and calm, crystal waters, Magens Bay features facilities, rentals, picnic benches, shops, and a waterfront bar and restaurant.
