Reef Beach is located in the vicinity of Christiansted. It’s a smaller beach that’s a favorite with locals during peak season. The beach sits on Teague Bay, and has a great view of Buck Island – overall, the surrounding area is beautiful with pristine white sands and plenty of beach chairs and hammocks for bathing in the sun.
The turquoise water is great for swimming if you can avoid some of the areas that are filled with sea grass (there’s a lot of that at this beach). The water can be a bit rough at times, as well. This area is known more its windsurfing than its snorkeling. The great restaurant which sits right next to the beach, Duggan’s Reef, is very popular with tourists and residents alike. There’s a deck over the water which serves burgers, salads, and the like, as well as an open-air dining room for gourmet meals. Enjoy a cocktail while overlooking the crystal clear bay and feeling a light, tropical breeze.
