While Point Udall is the destination and kinda cool to see the waves beating the cliff and rocks, there's nothing there. No cafe. No food. No bar. No shopping. No people. Definitely no beach on this 400' high cliff (jacks beach is a 20 minute hike a short drive away). The DRIVE to get here -- that was cool. Scenic,... More

The journey and The Point is romantic, family, spiritual, and even more than that! It's a must see when you are in STX!

Travel is on the left-side of the road & yet we had no issues getting there except some signage is often obscured or on the ground. It is very isolated but a great place to watch the sun rise FIRST in the USA! A nice marker tells the purpose of the site & few facts about St. Croix. Takes appx.... More

There's not too much here. It's a good look out and a place you can say you went. We rented a car during the off season and had it to ourselves. There's a trail we didn't take due to time contraints.

Travel to the easternmost part of the United States. So worth the trip east on the island. There is also a trail down to a private beach that appeared to be a true delight.

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
