Shoy’s Beach is a great beach to visit if you want to get away from crowds and have a beach to yourself. The sand is nice. It’s a great swimming beach. Palms and beautiful villas surround you. There are also a few wonderful shady spots...More

This is a decent beach, with quite some sand (more than many northside beaches). There's also some shade. No palm trees, but sea grapes and other brush. The beach is a bit full of pebbles near the water's edge, but it's calm and clear. Snorkeling...More

Finding this little gem is a trick. You have to go through The Buccanears Resort Entrance to get here. It is about a 1/2 mile of a horseshoe cove beach. Pretty secluded. Protected by the reef and is great for swimming and snorkeling.

Very nice beach. Due to the hurricane we found tons of whole shells and coral pieces. The beach also seemed to be worn away a bit so the surf was very rough. Great little spot though.

My wife and I happened upon Shoy Beach while looking a home in the gate guarded community adjacent to the Buccaneer Hotel. Very private beach, although not real deep as far as the width of the sand. Very beautiful setting. Private.

We were pleasantly surprised by the great snorkeling off of this sweet & beautiful beach. Plenty of shade along the beach and a lovely walk in! Highly recommend visiting this beach when on St. Croix.

This is a nice quiet beach, accessed through the Buccaneer Resort property. Snorkeling isn't very impressive, although our daughter did see a shark.

I'm so glad we went to the trouble of finding this little gem. It was a lot easier than some of the online directions made it out to be. Simply enter at the Buccaneer, veer to the right, stop at the guard shack and tell...More
