Coming from Christiansted turn left into the Buccaneer entrance- you can't miss the guard gate give them your name and you will be given directions. This was one of the nicest beaches close to town (5 minute drive). We went 3 times over our 5 day stay. The water is very calm even on windy days when the surf was rough at other beaches. There are some rocks in the middle of the beach that provide some interesting snorkeling but there is also long stretches of sandy bottom. The water does get deep quickly in some parts so keep an eye on small children. There was always someone else there when we went but it was never even remotely crowded.
