In a milestone for the island’s post-hurricane recovery, St. Thomas unveiled a newly restored Magens Bay earlier this month, eight weeks after the world-famous beach suffered extensive damage in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Royal Caribbean partnered with the Magens Bay Authority and the United States Virgin Island local government to undertake the major restoration effort, working with local contractors and businesses to remove debris, save downed trees and replant new ones, rebuild structures, and restore the white-sand coastline to its renowned beauty.

The beach, often named among the top ten beaches in the world, reopened just in time to welcome Adventure of the Seas and 3,000 Royal Caribbean guests back to the island. Magens Bay visitors enjoyed steel drum celebrations, dancing, water sports and tours, plus beautiful weather.
