A great place for swimming and snorkeling! Snorkel out to the buoys on the right, and you'll see a nice assortment of sea life. Lounge chairs and food are available. A good place to spend a day.

This is a cool spot to visit,especially on Sunday. It is a spot where many of the locals hang out,and on Sunday they have live music. You can also rent jet skis here right off the beach.

Very busy beach! Parked cars on both sides of the road so very hard to navigate thru the area. Beautiful white sand beach and crystal clear warm water!

Our favorite beach on St. Croix. Nice soft sand. Beautiful West end sunsets. The bar is right there. West End Water Sports has choices if you want to get active while at Rainbow. Worth the trip to Frederiksted.

We went to Rainbow Beach twice and had very different experiences but both were great. On Sunday, all of the locals and tourists were there in full force. The beach was crowded but fun! Volleyball, music, umbrella's and chairs for rent, a bar to take care of your thirst, great people watching and plenty of parking. On Friday, a quiet... More

The beach itself is nice but SMALL! Pretty clear water but not very much marine life at all. Also a jet ski place had a rental there so not very safe for kids to be swimming around.

View, water, the yummy restraunt, they were great and split our orders both non spicy and spicy. I loved that they had a foot bath, to wash off the sand. Great cocktails too. Tip, the Renaissance hotel rents snorkel gear for $15 for 24 hrs, They rent gear for $10 an hour.
