“Like Hawaii, only closer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This beach in front of the Carambola Beach Resort is open to the public as are all beaches on St. Croix, yet is almost never crowded. There is the advantage of the luxury hotel just steps away, for cold drinks at the bar or a light lunch, and the views from the beach are spectacular - like the NaPali Cliffs in Hawaii. Maroon Ridge, to the west of the beach, is a secluded area where escaped slaves once lived in caves in the cliffs, and the renowned "baths", or tidal pools, lie below those same cliffs. The beach is gorgeous, and there is a dive shop for equipment rentals right at the beach.
