A real inviting place to chill while visiting Saint Thomas is the restaurant/bar at Magans Bay.
Nothing like a refreshing cold drink at one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.
All sorts of water activities are available, swimming, water floats, jets skies, umbrellas, and snorkeling, anything you need to enjoy your stay.
Magens Bay features a well-protected white sand beach stretching for nearly three quarters of a mile. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, as well as a gathering place for locals.
The beach sits at the head of a deep bay, the arms of which are Peterborg peninsula to the east and Tropaco Point to the west. The bay’s northwest exposure means its waters are usually calm, although storms in the North Atlantic can occasionally generate large waves in the winter months, and turtles, conch, tarpon and other fish are commonly spotted.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
