It's a nice scenic drive out to the overlook. From it you can see Buck Island, St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands off in the distance. Not much there besides the view, the tropical breezes and the right to say you visited the easternmost point in the USA.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon on St Croix. Since neither of us had ever been, I decided to "drag" him to Point Udall. It's definitely out of the way but the scenery is absolutely beautiful and he stopped complaining lol You can see Buck Island on the north side of the island. While you're up this way, hike... More

We drove east to Point Udall, a monument shaped like 2 M’s, that is located on a high peninsula that is the most eastern US territory point. The views of the beach and water below were spectacular!

We drove from Christiansted to Point Udall, then headed south as far as the former refinery. Besure to read the info about the monument at Point Udall...very interesting. Truly beautiful and many spectacular vistas. If you want to take a picnic and hike a ways, there are beautiful beaches (just park where the locals are and you'll find them). The... More

You will enjoy the drive to this beautiful area...but you will enjoy the different views from all sides even more.Pictures cannot tell the story, but it is burned in my brain forever. We never make a trip to St. Croix without coming back.

Beautiful drive and great views of both the North and the south shore. It is the easternmost point of the United States.

I was hesitant to go to Point Udall--so what, a monument and that's it? The monument was fine, but what made it a big highlight of the trip was the ten-minute moderate difficulty walk down to the rocky point. This is the place where the mighty easterly squalls first meet the United States of America, and the stony shore of... More

Lovely lookout with a nice monument. Long winding drive up there but worth the drive to get to this lovely view.

The view from here is so pretty! Take lots of pictures, you may want to hang one on your wall. The different shades of blue are burned into my mind.
