“hikevto isaac and jack bay”

We enjoyed the hike. It was well marked, but lots of thorns. Great views. Loved it and a must do if you are up to the thorn bushes. Beaches were beautiful.

“Lovely beach, rough hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Isaac Bay is a lovely, secluded beach like many on St. Croix but the hike down through the tall (sometimes over your head!) guinea grass on a small trail with thorny bushes right beside and over the trail was a bit much for us. We left our rental car at the trailhead with windows down and doors unlocked as suggested. We took plenty of water but for the condition of the trail, we should have worn long pants. It was very hot and humid, though, so we hoped we could make it in shorts. It was indeed a rough hike because of the overgrown trail. We didn't visit this beach again even though we were staying nearby.

“Worth the hike, but be smart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

To find it, park in trailhead just before Pt. Udall monument. BE WARNed, leave no valuables in your car, keep car unlocked and windows cracked. Hike is on a tiny trail that has thorns n such. Even though going to the beach don't hike in bathing suit. Have some cover to your thighs and feet. Also, this is a remote and secluded beach (part of its beauty) so no facilities or amenities. Bring your own items of need, water, more water, sunscreen, towel, chair, snorkel equipment, food and drink. Lovely beach, views, and reef.

“beautiful Little rocky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

You will find these beaches all around the island, a lot are some must sees, however, if you don't know about water, a good rule is if you don't see other people swimming their, different sides of the islands beaches are different and calmer than others just use your common sense when trying to find the perfect beach to swim at.

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great beach. We careful with smugglers.
You will have 1km of white sandy beach for your own.

It is a 20 min hike (by clock), so bring water. There is no bar near by thus you should bring something to eat.
