They have a restaurant to buy drinks and food .They also have an area where you can rent snorkeling equipment or jet skis. The service was good. People were friendly. Conveniently located... More

If you are looking for a great sandy beach with calm water to swim in this is a good one. This is the leeward side of the island and the water tends to be calmer. Avoid this area when the weekly cruise ship is in if you want more peace and quiet. They have a great beach bar and you... More

At the time we were there and kids wanted to do snorkeling, only the west end of the island had clear water. We were staying next to Christiansted and the water was merky due to high surf for that time of the year. A lot of fish and couple stringrays. The beach had umbrellas available. Free parking, couple bars for... More

We dove a couple of wrecks off of Rainbow Beach and the area was beautiful. Very calm waters and the beaches are wider here on the west side.

Plenty of amenities. Beautiful water and very nice beach area. Rhythms Restaurant and watersports rental place right on site. Live music at times. Good drinks and food. West End Watersports is a top notch outfit!

Stopped in St. Croix on our cruise and because we've stayed here and done most, decided to just find a beach close to the dock. I'd seen a number of positive reviews on Rhythms and Rainbow Beach so we hailed a cab. $3/per person each way. I think there's a pecking order but if you can grab Jacobs you'll be... More

My husband and I went to Rythms. It was do nice! The food was good and the beach was breathtaking. The water was so clear and the water crashed on the jetty. I really loved the view

We were there on Monday morning and were completely alone. We hear this beach gets really packed with locals on weekends but apparently during the week it´s a whole other story. Also, we´ve heard cruise ships unload at this beach so beware. But our experience was good. It´s a small beach, with a bar and nothing more. We had a... More

We did the Geckos ATV 2FER package, so enjoyed one hour of jet skiing in the ocean. It was not very rough, I likened it to a windy day at our local lake. The beach is covered in pebbles and coral and the largest pieces of sea glass I found anywhere on the island. Really enjoyed hanging out and looking... More

Not the greatest beach in the world, but worth going to if you're in the area. We explored the island and ended up here. Worth it
