This rocky promontory, the easternmost point in the United States, juts into the Caribbean Sea and features "The Castle," a huge mansion perched atop the cliffs and which resembles India's Taj Mahal and a Moorish mosque.

Easy to drive to and worth getting up early in the morning. We didn't make it out there our first visit to St. Croix and I had regretted it; I'm so glad we made it out there on our second trip. The monument is beautiful and the sunrise is gorgeous. The drive is relaxing, through the hillside.

Pretty to look at, but would not leave my car unattended there. We did see broken glass and did have warning about leaving car unattended anywhere without allot of traffic.

Cool site marking the eastern most point of US territory. The giant sundial stands on a hill providing scenic Caribbean views. It would be cool to add it's sister site in Guam to the bucket list.

Standing at the easternmost point of US territory is cool, and there's an explanation of how the structure is a sort of sundial. On the other side of the rock wall there's a small trail you can hike down to be at the extreme easternmost point!

The drive to Point Udall alone was full of beautiful, breathtaking scenery. I literally had to pull off to the side at least twice while on my way to Point Udall, just to take in the scenery. My eyes were overloading with beautiful views! As for the destination itself, it felt so serene and fresh. I never felt more at... More

Breathtaking view from this point. Odd, but go here, to the eastern most point of the US, to watch the sunset. Just fabulous.

This was the lone sightseeing adventure we took while on St. Croix. It was a great experience. I did read about cars being broken into so we were careful. We went early (8:30)ish on a Saturday morning and the only people around were us and another couple from our resort. We did stop a some of the parking areas for... More

I made the drive early one morning with my wife and daughters from the Buccaneer Resort to see the sunrise. St. Croix is in the very eastern edge of the time zone (the easternmost point in the U.S.), so both sunrise and sunset will be earlier than you might think. On the map it looks as though it will be... More
