Best beach on the Island

We liked the beach the most. Equipment/sea doos to rent, games to place and a great place to eat. If we go back to the Island, we will spend more time on this beach.

My husband and I were looking for something low key while at St. Croix. I had read a few reviews about Rainbow Beach before we left and decided that was the ticket! We had THE BEST time at this beach. They have a snorkel area with some underwater 'reefs' set up to attract fish and other wildlife--we even saw a... More

6 of us were just wanting a simple beach day and found it right off the Jewel of the Seas. Fairly clean beach, chairs and umbrella for rent ($5 each) and included a free small rum punch. Fair snorkeling, food near by. Note: Public restrooms are scary.

We certainly have not been to all the beaches in the Caribbean, but of the ones we have visited, Rainbow Beach is by far our favorite. White powder sands, great views, and plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. Bruno at the bar is a legend and makes it very fun. Be sure to have lunch at Rhythms. Sit outside and... More

Prior to our trip we had read reviews of this beach. Wow what a great beach! We loved everything about it. The lunch was delicious the Mahi bites are a must try. Everyone at the restaurant was awesome. Great drinks, food and fantastic service. You can't miss Bruno and his Cruzan confusion drinks......so much fun at his cool tiki bar.... More

There is good parking, shadow under the trees, a restaurant on the beach, jet ski rental and guided jet ski. The water is Caribbean color and it is good for swimming. It can get high close to shore. It is on the west side of St. Croix, midway from Frederiksted to the entrance of the rain forest.

The parking lot near Rhythms was full because of lots of music playing, so we had to park further north. We found a place on the beach that didn’t have rocks in the water, just sandy bottom. There was no one near us, so we had privacy, and we stayed 2 hours until the sun set over the water.
