Sapphire Beach

LOCATION: Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina, on the East End of the island.

Those seeking a festive beach experience will find Sapphire Beach to be very appealing. This glorious locale offers a stunning view of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. It is a good spot for windsurfing, and three reef areas just off the shore are great for snorkeling. Amenities include a marina, restaurants and a beachside dive shop, offering rental equipment. 

In high season, Sapphire can become downright crowded with sun-worshippers and water sports enthusiasts – even during the week. Part of the appeal is the breathtaking view from the beach. Another is the sophisticated array of water sports activities available for novices to pros. The gift shop carries everything related to beach fun under-the-sun. The hotel also offers a casual seaside restaurant, restrooms, and a friendly, spacious bar that pours everything from colas to exotic frosty concoctions.  The adjacent marina is home to day charters of all types.  Party with island bands on the beach every Sunday after 2 p.m

Marina Manager;

I would like to reserve a slip in the Sapphire Bay Marina from mid-November 2012 to late May 2013. “S/V Liberty” is a 42 Valiant that draws 6’0” and has a 10′ beam. Can you accommodate my request? What are you slip fees for the period?

Best regards,

Hi Mr. Sweeney,

The Marina is now owned and operated by Amantha Yacht Sales. Ironically enough one of my co-workers here at used to be trained by one of the owners! To contact them directly, please call 340-998-1203 or you can go to their web-site at

Saphire Beach Resort can be contacted directly 340 775 2600.


Hi Sean. The information you posted regarding ownership of the marina at sapphire beach resort & marina is incorrect. Each slip and condo is individually owned. Amantha yacht sales does not own any slips at this marina although they may manage/rent slips for individual owners. Please correct your post. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing this one! I also really like the fact that it is available for windsurfing and snokeling. I would like to know if there are caves for spelunking.

Leo D,

This area is part of the U.S.V.I. a territory of the U.S.. As such no public spelunking is allowed. While in the area please keep your spelunking to private non public bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. with the blinds drawn shut. Thank you and enjoy your visit.
