Beautiful beach with pure white sand. Restaurant staff not very friendly and drink prices were high. Stayed on the Hotel on the Cay, which was nice -- not breathtaking, but nice. Odd that they did not provide shampoo to the guest rooms.

We stayed at Hotel On The Cay for one night and really loved this little Cay. The little ferry was fun, the beach was gorgeous and the people we met were friendly. We will return for sure!

We stayed on the Island at the Hotel on the Cay. You can walk out to the beach anytime. There is a bar/restaurant on the beach. The Ferry is free for people staying at the hotel. Lots of birds and flower everywhere. The beach is available to anyone but the ferry cost $5 for adults to reach the cay.

This is an island in the middle of Christiansted Harbor. It does have a small hotel/condo on the property but the main feature is the white sand beach with view of the town just across the sailboat filled harbor. Nice beach bar is only a few steps away.

This play is a nice surprise after a visit to the fort. A short $5 ferry ride and you're on a pristine beach clear clean water with a beach bar. Snorkeling was fun saw lots of fish including star fish. If you leave your car at the fort, be aware they close the lot at 3:30

Awesome beach, very relaxing and quaint. Was here for 7 days straight. Can't go wrong with this beach. Usually not too many people and you can always rent a chair and go snorkeling.

This beach was so much fun for my little ones(2 and 6). My son (2) loved the boat ride over to the beach and loved that he could wade into the water and play with some pretty calm waves and views of the sea plane taking off. My daughter (6) loved looking at the sea life as well as all... More

This little beach is a short water taxi ride over from the Christiansted boardwalk. The water is very clean and warm. We didn't snorkel but we saw starfish, some rays and colorful fish just swimming around. You can rent chairs, towels and I'm sure anything else you need to lay around and do nothing! Mary, in the beach shop, is... More

The hotel is placed on a little Island and is Nice but old, from some rooms you cant see anything because of the Big palmtrees as they dont Cut Down. They have tried to renovate the rooms but the result is not too good. We saw a Lot of rats around the restaurant and in front of the hotel.

Great snorkeling off the Hotel on the Cay beach...small beach but very clean and restful...beautiful view of Christiansted and you can snorkel all around the island safely! The BEST part is that St Croix Water Sports can set you up with equipment to do all sorts of water sports while you are visiting this little island...and they have a great... More
