“Small Beach, but quiet! Good swimming.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

This beach was nice to take a dip in. There was only 1 other couple there, so we had some privacy. The only downfall, was that the sand slopes down to the water, and otherwise there's lots of bushes so not too many great places to lay your towel out on.
In order to get there, you must go through Buccaneer's gates, and go to the guard at the right side. Just let them know you're going to the beach and they'll let you through!

“Cool spot- great swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Loved walking down the little path to the beach under the canopy of trees and plants. Watch your head! The beach is isolated and beautiful...

“Secluded, beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is my favorite beach on St. Croix. There were just a few people here throughout an entire day, so you get privacy and quiet, not to mention good sand and swimming.

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is a secluded, beautiful beach. We were there at sunset for our wedding ceremony. It was wonderful and had the beach to ourselves. It's so cool walking through the tree tunnel to get to the beach. Will go back when we visit in February.

“Picture perfect beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

What a fun little walk to this beach. The parking lot leads to a very cool, tree covered path to the beach. There had been a great deal of rain, so the path was submerged under 6" of water, a very weird slog through the water! However, the beach was the perfect, sandy fringed crescent you've ever seen! Good snorkeling to the right; when conditions are good, you can swim around the point to the Buccaneer if you wish. Truly, a gorgeous beach for swimming and snorkeling. Do this with the Buc and Tamarind Reef and you will see how nice snorkeling is on St. Croix.
