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 hung out on the beach on our cruise ship towels under the shade of the palm trees. Part of our group took a resort course scuba diving and the rest of us snorkeled. We had the scuba shop give us snorkel suggestions which really helped to know where to go. We went out to about 30 ft deep and... More

We had a great time at this beach. There are sunny and shade areas. The water was warm. We got great drinks from Eat. We were going to eat there but they closed early on Sunday. There is a nice sandy beach to walk on. The power went out for a little while but a tent was set up and... More

Shaded areas and restaurant and bar on beach. Bay can be calm but day we visited there were waves. Need water shoes. Saw several sea turtles while standing in the water.

The beach is not real big but it is nice and when the water is calmer then when we were there we heard that the snorkeling is great. It was very wavy when we were there so you could not see the bottom as clearly. There are spots down the way where you can sort of seclude yourself from others... More

We went to Cane Bay hoping to do some snorkeling and to relax on the beach. Unfortunately, the day we were there, the visibility was virtually non-existent, and the beach was reduced to a narrow sliver. We heard that the water visibility was unusually poor on the day we went, so we're hoping to try again another time.

We camped at Cane Bay for 5 nights. We really enjoyed ourselves. The swimming is ok, but there is fire coral just off shore, I got scratched by some and 2 months later it's still scarred and itching, so be careful.

Great snorkeling, great beach, and of course...great food. must places are EATS and Off the Wall. If you want the best place to stay, just three minutes away is The Waves at Cane Bay.

the beach is narrow, the waters on the rough side with rocks mixed in, but the view of the northwest coast of St. Croix makes this a nice stop on an island tour.
