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.

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.

A small port, marina and dive shops available for walk-out dives. The water is beautiful & the fish abundant along with sting ray, shark, turtles, lobster, coral galore & white sandy bottom. Great for snorkelers as well. There are no bad dive sites here!

I went on a cloudy day, but this is a pretty beach and a fun area to get to. Go here if you have the chance.

Spent 1.5 hours snorkeling early in the morning. Saw a couple of sea turtles, barracudas, and a multitude of fish. Ocean was fairly calm. Waded in off the boat launch and went east.

My brother got married here on the beach and then had the reception at Eat, the restaurant right across the street. Picture Perfect!

Beautiful beach with soft white sand and nearby food and drinks. One of the best beaches on the island. Also good for snorkeling - the water gets deep very slowly so it's a great spot for kids to play with minimal hazards. but the best part about this beach is that it is one of the best places for a...

A must go, this place had some of the best snorkeling on the island, just be aware of where you step as there is a sea urchin forest not far off shore.

Loved Calvin's pig roast and the R&B Connection band on the beach! Chairs are available to rent $7. "Eat @ Cane Bay" is right across the street. They close early on Sundays though. They have THE BEST rum cake with caramel sauce that I've EVER had!!!!! Beautiful sunsets to be had here too!!!!
