Bordeaux Bay Beach

East End, St. Thomas

Bordeaux Bay and it's beach are located on the western side of St. Thomas out in what locals call the country. This secluded beach is an awesome place to explore both the history and the natural wonder of St. Thomas. There are huge sloped rocks adjacent to the beach that you can walk around and climb on. Towards the bottom of the rocks (basically slanted cliffs) there are pools of water in some places. Always beware of swimming in these spots as the surf on the northside of the island can be rough and unpredictable. There are also several ruins that are remains of an old Danish Plantation. One is directly on the beach and according to some people was used as a boat house type building. There is also one on the hill to the east of the beach (which can be find to try to find).

Getting to Bordeaux Bay is not as easy as other beaches with it's remote location out in the countryside. It's located down Bordeaux Rd, which is usually in rough condition and will require 4WD and good ground clearance. You can also attempt to take a moped / bike down the road, which is what I did, but can be quite bumpy. You can jump onto Bordeaux Rd from just down the road from where you would go to Stumpy Beach or you can go all the way to the town of Bordeaux and jump on there.
