The best beach in St. Croix. Beautiful and private. Enjoy the water and just enjoy being in such a lovely setting. For families and couple alike.

Coming from Christiansted turn left into the Buccaneer entrance- you can't miss the guard gate give them your name and you will be given directions. This was one of the nicest beaches close to town (5 minute drive). We went 3 times over our 5 day stay. The water is very calm even on windy days when the surf was... More

This beach feels secluded despite the fact that it was the most crowded beach I visited in April. (We're talking about STX so by "crowded" I mean there were about 10 other couples there.) The sand is a little sloped but nothing you can't set up a chair on or lay your towel on. Lots of trees for shade. The... More

What a great beach! The walk in was so picturesque. Like walking through a tunnel of trees, literally. The beach itself was gorgeous. The surf the day we went was pretty rough... not sure if it's always like that. Kinda rough for our boys who were 5 & 6. Our older kids (15, 18 & 18) loved it. Would be... More

Enter thru buccaneer, right turn before gate, drive to end of subdivision rd. Cool 1 minute walk thru trees. We were the only ones there. Not for those looking for excitement chairs or bathrooms.

This beach was nice to take a dip in. There was only 1 other couple there, so we had some privacy. The only downfall, was that the sand slopes down to the water, and otherwise there's lots of bushes so not too many great places to lay your towel out on. In order to get there, you must go through... More

This is my favorite beach on St. Croix. There were just a few people here throughout an entire day, so you get privacy and quiet, not to mention good sand and swimming.
