Fodor's Review

This island, the fourth-largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, floats about a ¼ mile (½ km) out in Charlotte Amalie harbor. A ferry between Crown Bay Marina and the island operates several times daily Monday through Saturday 6:30–6 and Sunday and holidays 8–5 at a cost of $10 round-trip. From the ferry dock, it's a hike of less than a half-mile to Honeymoon Beach (though you have to go up a big hill), where Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett filmed a scene of the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Get lunch from a food truck that pulls up daily. Monday night is Movie Night at Honeymoon Beach, a fun activity for the whole family after a day on the beach.
