This is place to go for a great beach. There is nothing here but the beach. It is spectacular. Almost 3 miles from end to end. Gentle slope great for walking. The two days we were ther had different wave conditions. One almost calm the...More

When we visited, it was too rough to swim, and the water drops off really quickly, so could only lay on the beach. Beautiful sand and view, if that's your thing, but I like to swim and snorkel so was suboptimal. Interesting fact though, this...More

Excellent beach! The sand and water are heavenly. We went both Saturday and Sunday. It was somewhat crowded on Saturday, but crowded for St. Croix is like 20-30 people. There was plenty of room on the beach still. There isn't much snorkeling here; it's more...More

Worth checking out this beach on the western tip of the Island. Long stretch of sand that you can walk along. Water was fairly calm. Many brought picnics. We brought blow-up floaties and relaxed in the water. You can see across the bay to where...More

Exquisitely peaceful. Not for the beach-action lover, but for the quiet beach lover. Float in perfectly warm clear water, read a book, stare off to the west at distant boats, distant weather, and an immense sky. Love this place. Remember to bring a wide brim...More

THE BEST beach on St. Croix. It's only open on the weekends and only when the turtles aren't nesting. No facililties, bar, restaurants - just you and the beach. No shade. I recommend going early (at 10am when they open) and leave as the sun...More

No, hit the restroom back in town before you go to beach.
