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.

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 wooden sign for "Rachael's Rentals". Here you can rent a 2 or 4 passenger golf cart for the day or longer if you are staying the night and explore the rest of the 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 or get a drink at Dinghy's Beach bar.
You can rent Jet Skis from Wicked Water sports if you call ahead and make a reservation. www.wicked-watersports.com 340-998-2728

Dinghy's beach bar rents paddle boards and snorkel equipment and has chairs and umbrellas for use if you patronize the bar.
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 dangerous)
You are sure to see a Red Footed Tortoise somewhere as you drive around and even an iguana siting is possible.
