I am older and prefer different environment. It was crowded and it was a Sunday. I was there to see a sunset but the clouds inferred.

This beach was so beautiful!! We rented a jeep for a couple days to tour the island. We reserved an ATV tour that left from this beach and wanted to see where it was ahead of time. We spent the day on this beach. It was one of the best days we had on the island!!

Our favorite beach to visit during this last trip to St Croix. It's clean, not overcrowded, land and water activities nearby... just a nice spot to hang out for the day.

Just over a mile walk from the cruise pier you'll find a very beautiful beach with many amenities. The beach was clean, the sand soft, the water delightful and the food and drinks at Rhythms just delicious. It was the first port visited on our cruise and was the perfect remedy to start our vacation off relaxing in the sun,... More

I love it when the cruise ships aren't in . It's so beautiful. The water is crystal clear and the beach is great. It's a lot of fun on Sunday's when there is a band, but it is crowded then

The second best beach we visited on the island! The first best was the Carambola. This beach had friendly people and good water for snorkeling. Water was a beautiful clear blue.

Went to Rainbow Beach with the family hoping for some good snorkeling. Sadly, there was much trash in the water. If you have your own transportation, we recommend driving north just a bit to find beautiful Butler Bay. The beach is beautiful there.

I would recommend this beach to anyone visiting St. Croix. We were only there for the day, visiting via the 2-fer package with Gecko Island Adventure, what a way to spend the 2nd half of our time on the island! Really nice beach, chairs and umbrellas were clean and in good condition. Staff were friendly and engaging. We ate at... More

We spent the day on this beach. My husband and kids rode jet skis, we had lunch at Rhythms and swam. Great sandy beach no rocks in water.
