“Cast Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Isaac Bay was the highlight of my trip to St. Croix.

I drove to Point Udall to watch the sun rise, then drove a few hundred yards down the road to park at the trail head. There was broken glass in the parking area, so I'd recommend leaving your car unlocked and windows open (and obviously don't bring valuables with you and don't leave anything appetizing in the car).

The trail is well-marked, but lightly used, so it feels very wild and is a great introduction to the beach to come. It is an easy hike.

The beach is unbelievable - something you wouldn't believe still exists in this world. A half-mile of soft, white/pink sand, completely undeveloped, preserved for the turtles. I didn't see a soul for three hours, and felt undeserving of such a perfect place, all to myself.

“Great hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This lovely secluded Bay is reached by a well constructed trail that is maintained by the Nature Conservancy. It takes about 1/2 hour to hike down to the beach. Bring your mask and snorkel, there is plenty to see in the water. Remember to carry out all of your trash, this is a lovely beach and it would be great for it to stay that way!

“Worth the hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Beautiful secluded beach. About a fifteen minute hike with gorgeous views. Felt like I was in a Disney movie with the number of butterflies swirling around me as a walked the trail.

“Go east.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Isaac's Bay was the highlight of the island. The new trail down from Point Udall made for a nice hike, a terrain is a complete contrast to the west side of the island. The snorkeling was good it is nice to see some of the corals coming back.
