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.

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

Point Udall in itself is simple but the views are amazing and you can hike down to Isaac Bay which is a must! The monument is fun to take pictures by and worth the pretty long drive to get there.

This is an easy drive from Christianstad on good roads out to the east end of the island. A type of sundial is there along with one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean. A great place to greet the sun rising out of the open sea.

The views from point Udall are amazing. Being able to see the north east and south out side of the island at the same time is great. Not a lot to do here other than take in the scenery but well worth the drive

A bit of a drive, but it is cool to get to see the easternmost point of the US. The monument is a large sundial that was placed at the turn of the millennium. The park is clean, but it is a bit of a drive to get to unless you're staying on the east end of the island.

Scenic, beautiful Caribbean ocean views. It is breathtaking driving to this monument. Gives you about a 300 degree ocean view if not more. You almost feel like you are on a movie set. The only other thing I can compare this too is Pacific Coast highway. It truly is worth a visit and does not take long to get there... More

It isn't a place to spend a lot of time but was really worth visiting. The panoramic view as you look all around is amazing. It is only a short distance from the parking to walk to Issac Bay so they are a perfect combination.

Stunning view, but there is nothing other than a commemorative sculpture at the site. No rest rooms, or any retail shops of any kind. The road leading to the point was winding and in disrepair in some spots. Well worth the experience, but be careful on the road.

We drove out and were surprised by the cacti while overlooking the ocean..... The water colors were awesome!

He easternmost point in the US (and its territories/principalities) is a beautiful location. Our guide knew the architect/artist who constructed the monument and we had the inside story... Like where the nude beach is just a kilometer or so southwest beyond the next bluff. Welcome to the islands...
