Hull Bay Beach is ideal for people trying to escape the crowds of St. Thomas. It’s tranquil, natural feel and more secluded than some of the other beaches in St. Thomas. The beauty of Hull Bay is in its tranquil, natural feel.
It’s a little beach, laid back and crowd free.
The shoreline is narrow and filled with white sand mixed with pebbles and small rocks. The small pebbles dominate the right side of the shore. The tree line is largely made up of maho trees, plus a couple of seagrape trees, genip trees, and pink poui trees. The trees provide natural shade.
