They both have beautiful beaches. The Buc is more like a resort with tennis, golf, social events. Carambola is more isolated and quiet.

Guess it depends on what you consider "nicest".

Carambola's beach is very nice and the setting is gorgeous. You are surrounding by high cliffs/mountains and it feels very lush. I have never gone swimming there but I understand that you need to enter the water at a particular spot.

The Buccaneer has two main beaches, one of which is quite long but has a reef just off shore (there's a break that you can swim through) and the other that is great for swimming. Surf is generally not too rough (except if it is stormy).

Maybe you can take a look at the pictures on the websites and compare.

And you may want to watch your timing in May as ST. Croix has a well known triathlon that month that may make reservations more challenging.
