My wife and I are really excited to be coming out to St. Croix finally!
We chose St. Croix (and early November) because we wanted a place that wouldn't be super busy. The whole idea of the trip was to come out and get away from the bustle of the city, and generally be by ourselves.
I have heard the busy season doesn't really start until January time (I guess people are scared off by the fact it is still hurricane season?), but we were curious as to how busy it would be on the beaches and in town. We will be out around the 3rd of November for about a week.
If there are people on the beaches, it isn't a big deal, we were just hoping it wouldn't be like the LA beaches where you can barely find room to sit.
