Hi everyone-- does anyone know if we're allowed to bring our BBQ grills to Lindquist? We're new to the island. If not, are there any beaches in St. Thomas that allow us to barbeque on the beach?

We bring ours there .....suggest that you place it on one of the concrete "decks" to stabilize the grill.

btw...It's now called Smith Bay Park....and they charge a $2. entry fee.

Last time I was there the entry booth was closed and no one was collecting any money. There was a lifeguard though.

You can bring your own grill to Lindquist, and also to Magens Bay. Both beaches are parks. Magens is well established as a park; there are benches, lifeguards, restrooms, sheds for rent, restaurant/bar, gift shop, an arboretum behind the beach parking area and there is an admission charge. You can learn more about the beach/park on their website: Smith Bay Park (Lindquist) is under the same organization as far as administration of the beach/park goes but its relatively new. It has a couple benches, lifeguard, a port-a-john, and they charge admission but it only seems to be collected on weekends.

You can also take your grill to other beaches too... Vessup, Hull Bay, Brewers Bay... beaches that do not have resorts on them. All the beaches are open to the public by law. The access by land isn't clearly laid out in the law, however resorts allow public access through their property (either by choice, as required in their building permits, etc.). Some "resort" beaches have signs for beach etiquette which might include no music, bbq, parties etc., but not sure if you say arrived by boat with a grill that they could say anything to you. In any case residents generally respect the resort and its guests and while they go hang out at those beaches, swim, snorkel etc. they typically don't use them for parties or bbq.

Hope that helps. You might check out the St. Thomas Beach Guide on our other website, its organized by Northside, South, East, West so just click on those links and check out some of your beach options. Have fun exploring and finding your favorite beaches!
