We went to Sandy Point on a Sunday afternoon. Stayed on the east end so it was quite a drive, but well worth it. Parking lots were full so we had to park on the road. Lots of people present, but most stayed by the entrance from the main parking lot and it was easy to find a spot to... More

Most beautiful beach and sand I have ever seen. We took a picnic lunch and tent shelter for shade. Did some swimming and walking of the beach. Very few people on the beach. Limited hours but well worth it.

We took the time to make it to this beach and it was so worth it! We had the whole place to ourselves and it was beautiful soft ocean sand and water with gentle waves that allow you to just back float and look up at the clouds. It's absolutely breathtaking! The water is crystal clear and is the softest... More

Just back from a cruise with one day on St. Croix. Sandy Point is great. However, we could not find any taxi driver who would take us there. They were saying it's closed (I knew it is open on Sunday as it is not turtle season) and the road is bad etc etc. We were not even bargaining about the... More

yust go if you can. No review can really prepare you for how nice this beach is. Miles of deep, white, untouched sand. Most of the beach-goers are in one area. The rest of the beach (& it really does go on for miles) is deserted. It's only open on Sat & Sun & only when the turtles aren't nesting.... More

This beach is what dreams are made of. Softest sand ever. Most beautiful, buoyant water ever. Crabs cutely scurrying around. Birds singing in the bushes. Peaceful and calm. A slice of heaven on earth.

I've never been to a beach where the water was more clear and blue! The sand is nice and clean, and there's plenty of sun. You have to drive down a long, windy road to get there, and you park where the lot is. You walk a little bit, and you are there! The first spots are where the water... More

It takes some tenacity to get to. It is well off the beaten path on the Fredrisksted end of the island. If you don't know where you are going get directions from a local or get a map. We used a GPS on an iPad and reception was spotty at best. Drive slowly when you enter as it is a... More

Like all the other reviews say, this is an amazing beach! It never gets super populated, and the sand and water is just beautiful. The beach has limited hours, but it is definitely worth scheduling a day around heading to this beach. Once the beach closed at 4 or 5, we headed into Frederiksted (non-Cruise ship day) and went onto... More
