The overwhelming physical beauty of Sapphire Beach: 20 feet from the water's edge; the music of the surf to relax you; the constant tradewinds to cool you; white sands at your doorstep; a palm tree to call your own. An island vista uninterrupted from Atlantic to Caribbean--the ultimate in relaxation.
Situated at the windward (Eastern) end of St. Thomas, Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina is just five minutes away from the nautical village of Red Hook, with the St. John and BVI ferry docks, the fabulous Moe's Market with its gourmet wines, meats and deli, the succulent lobster to be found at many village restaurants, all kinds of interesting little shops and the constant party at Duffy's Love Shack.
