Owner description: Located on St. Croix's north shore, the waters are not always gentle along this palm-tree-lined beach, but scuba diving and snorkeling are very popular here where less than 200 yards out is the drop-off called Cane Bay Wall.

We had no idea what we wanted to do so we took a cab to the cane bay beach. It was a perfect surprise. You could scuba or snorkel. If you want to kayak I recommend making a reservation first since they have specific tour times. We snorkeled right off the beach and it was great! We saw lots of... More

Had a great day at the beach! We packed a cooler and drank wine and beer and played in the water. You can rent a chair for $7 for the day which was super cheap compared to a lot of islands I have visited.. not busy on non cruise days. We were lucky enough to miss the cruise ship people,... More

First timer to the USVI, went with family who have previously been. First I have to say, St. Croix is a must. Cane bay was definitely the highlight of our vacation. I got scuba certified with ease and quick time. Outstanding diving! Cane Bay Dive Shop and employees are 5/5 stars. Lots to do at the north shore of the... More

Restaurant, Bar and Dive shop are all on or steps from the beach. The snorkling was great. Turtles, Rays and more fish than you count. The Diving here is great as well and can be done right off the beach. The swim in and out for the dive will wear you out. We were there during the busiest week of... More

Right off the road across the street from Eat, great swimming and laying out beach, but great reef snorkeling just 45 yards from beach. Also if hungry or thirsty, eat is right there and willing to satisfy. If up for real adventurous swim/snorkel head out to buoys about 300 yards from beach for even more amazing sights.

We were in St. Croix on the Celebrity Constellation for one day and took a shuttle for $18 round trip. It was worth 10 times the fair. Fantastic snorkeling right from the beach. We saw manta rays, big barracuda and a huge variety of the regular reef dwellers. Not a large beach to lay on but lots of places in... More

Easy entry into the bay, swim all the way out to see some nice fish and corals. It was fun seeing all the families enjoying a beautiful day at the beach. We enjoyed a tropical drink at the beach bar there.
