So - it seems like just an arrival point, until you realize that there is a path just beyond the wall that will let you hike down to the REAL point. Which is spectacular and totally worth it. Plus you get the adrenaline of not entirely being sure that you're doing something fully allowed. Definitely do!

Not a lot here, but the views of the ocean make it work seeing. Most eastern point of the U.S. territories.

The easternmost point of the United States, beautiful views and we hiked down to the beach. Lovely and secluded.

Point Udall is spectacular. But word to the wise, on your way up to the point or your way back down is a place to pull off the road so you can explore the beach. Be careful here, there is broken window glass all over the ground and what looks like a burned area down the path to the beach... More

Pretty wild knowing that EVERYONE in the U.S. is west of you! Very pretty views, lovely drive there. If you visit St. Croix, this has to be a stopping place.

Great geological point of significance and amazing beauty as the easternmost has amazing views of the deep blue sea, crashing waves, and rugged coastline. Drive out east and follow the signs for a great photo op on the most easter piece of US soil. The road is paved and leads you along the windy hilly road exposing some of St... More

I am glad we drove there. It was a nice drive through the mountains and we stopped to over look the ocean before we got there. But a beautiful view when you get there.

The drive to Point Udall was very beautiful lots of places to pull off the road to take pictures. The point itself is well plain but now I can say we have been at the "eastern most end of the USA". If hiking is your thing there seemed to be lots of trails, some looked quite steep.

It has a monument for the eastern most point in the US and the views are great... but unless you want to sit on the stone wall and admire the views, it will get old after 5 minutes of looking around and taking pictures. I am glad we went, but also glad we didn't spend more than 5 minutes there...... More

The easternmost point in the US. Great views, scenic drive to Pt. Udall, and without much effort. Drive up the road, park, and take your pictures. I've never gotten up early enough to enjoy the sunset, but I'll bet it's spectacular. If you're on the island, it doesn't take much time to drive there and it is free - how... More
