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.

Hey, it's a beach in St. Croix, so it could be worse, but it could be A LOT better! The beach was filthy with trash all over the sand. I saw a wooden pallet, a discarded metal lawn chair, a used diaper and dog poop. Lounge chairs can be rented for $7 each, but the chairs are falling apart! The... More

We did 2 shore dives at Cane Bay. While the swim out is bit of a "hike", the coral heads and wall at Cane Bay are well worth the trip. Renting tanks right there, we were able to make two dives and grab a bite between them. If in St Croix to dive, this should definitely be on your list.

As our taxi pulled up to the very small beach I was not happy. There are two places to eat, one is directly on the beach who rents beach chairs for $7.00 that looks like they should have been thrown out years ago. The eatery right across the street rents Adirondack chairs for $10 and has wifi. No one has... More

We loved our day at Cane Bay. We went there on a Sunday and had a delicious brunch at Eat. It's right in front of the beach. There is a connecting dive shop to the restaurant to rent equipment for snorkeling for 15 each. There's also a little beach bar if you want to bring your own lunch and just... More

We absolutely love Cane Bay. It's a gorgeous beach and just perfect for relaxing, but there is also some great beach diving which makes it simply perfect. Great restaurant right on the beach too. We loved Cane Bay and will be back.

We had a very good time at the bbq. Food was wonderful, stilt walked did an awesome job. The fire eater was impressive and funny when he walked on glass. Setting was picture perfect

We were a little disappointed in Cane Bay. We stayed at the Palms at Pelican Cove and saw a lot more marine life in those waters than Cane Bay. It was kind of crowded with locals and the marine life was sparse.

This is a terrific place to spend the day swimming and lounging on the beach. "Eat At Cane Bay" is one of our favorite restaurants. You can "Build Your Own Burgers", or order from the menu. I had the fried shrimp basket w/fries, and it was wonderful... JUMBO SHRIMP!

We snorkeled this area two times during our stay on St. Croix and it was okay, nothing spectacular but it was the second best spot we found on the Island (Frederiksted Pier being the best). We saw a variety of fish, a small ray, a turtle and a coral nursery. The coral nursery was pretty interesting, and you could see... More
