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 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.

The best view may be underwater, but the bay itself is something special. Particularly true in the evenings.

Though I was told that this is a nice beach in St. Croix, when I saw it I did not think it was anything special. It is along the road in the north, going east downhill from the Marriott Carambola. It was not wide and it looked a bit rough for swimming the day we went. It may be good... More

Went for a short visit after doing a kayak tour. Beautiful sandy beach about 25-30 minutes from the cruise port. Well worth the $18 pp round trip taxi fare

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
