Water Island Beaches

Honeymoon bay is the main public beach on
Water Island. Most days, it is empty. Every day at about 2pm, the
KonTiki party barge invades the island, dumps about 100 drunk tourists
on the beach. They stay for about an hour, then leave. No problem. They
usually provide some humorous entertainment. Sundays
are 'locals' days. Usually a cookout and drinks.
Sprat Beach is on the East side of Water Island. Nobody
ever goes there. Although it is a public beach (all beaches in the
USVI are public), it is within a private gated community on the
island and they pay a large fee to maintain the facilities.
They tend to be fairly protective about people using
their beach, so I wouldn't recommend spending any time there.
Limestone beach is a corel and stone beach on the east side of
Water Island. It is on the windward side, and all kinds of unusual and
wonderful stuff washes up there. This is a great beach to walk on and
search for shells.
