Welcome to Water Island.
A beautiful residential Island with a great sense of pride in the community. Our roadsides and beaches remain clean because of amazing volunteers that take the time to pick up everywhere they go, so please make sure you take ALL trash to a trash can. With no Fire or Medical services provided by the government Water Island has its own Volunteer run search and rescue operation. Water Island Search and Rescue (WISAR), taking care of visitors and residents emergency needs since 2003. Click here to support WISAR. You can also support them by buying a T shirt or Tank top as a Water Island memento, these are available at Rachael's Rental's office, please ask attendant to see them!
To get to Water Island take the Water Island Ferry from Crown Bay Marina by Tickles Dockside pub on St Thomas leaving every hour on the hour. check schedule: www.waterislandferry.com
After you arrive to the Water Island Ferry dock (aka Phillips landing) you can take a very short walk (2 min) up the hill and on the right hand side you will see a sign for"Rachael's Rentals". Here you can rent a 2, 4 or 6 passenger golf cart for the day, or longer if you are staying the night, you can explore the fort and views on our beautiful island. We give you a map and directions to all the best spots on the island.
Things to do include sightseeing via golf cart and looking at the views, going to Honeymoon Beach where you can swim snorkel and have an amazing lunch at Heidi's Honeymoon Grille (closed temporarily) or at Dinghy's Beach bar (open).
VERY SOON there will be "Shaved Ice and Local Art Cart" open! we are very excited as all art is genuinely made on Water Island by Water Island artists! The location is at the center of the island- More info to come as soon as they open!
WI Mart located near the ferry dock is a little store that sells drinks and essential food and home items for your stay on Water Island. contact # 340-227-5527 (same owner as Dinghy's Beach bar)
Dinghy's beach bar rents paddle boards and snorkel equipment and has chairs and umbrellas for use if you patronize the bar. contact 340-227-5527
You can explore WWII Fort Segarra and its underground passageways for a spooky look back in time to world war 2. (**Note this historical fort is unmaintained and can be very dangerous)
You are sure to see a Red Footed Tortoise somewhere as you drive around and even an iguana siting is possible.
