“Great snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Great snorkeling off the Hotel on the Cay beach...small beach but very clean and restful...beautiful view of Christiansted and you can snorkel all around the island safely! The BEST part is that St Croix Water Sports can set you up with equipment to do all sorts of water sports while you are visiting this little island...and they have a great little restaurant and one of the best bartenders ON the island...be sure to visit!

“Very Quite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Our visit was during off season so we were able to enjoy the quite atmosphere. The hotel has undergone some repair and were working on a larger entertainment room. The ferry staff and Mary at the dock were absolutely wonderful. Mary owner of the little shop on the dock was so helpful in finding great deals on a car rental and trips. Stop in and see her it is well worth the savings.

“Lazy Day on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip to St Croix. We had done Buck Island the first time, so we wanted go to the beach and discover Christianstead. We took the ferry ride over and discovered the beach was not crowded. The restaurant food was good and convenient. Very Nice view of the city, fort and bay. The sailboats were beautiful. Nice beach,especially if you want to kill two birds with one stone. We finished the day with shopping and taking in the sights.

“Beatiful Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed at Hotel on the Cay which is right on the beach. We love it. Able to snorkel anytime you want. Clear water to wade in and just relax. Lots of fish, people around us saw lobster. We saw conch shells and starfish.. Even went around to back of island for more snorkeling!

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I think this beach might have been one of my least favorite out of the several that I visited on St. Croix. There were a lot of little pebbles and debris on the beach. However, there was decent snorkeling. We saw a few different kinds of fish and crabs. The parts where you could actually swim were limited.
