My son and I were visiting Christiansted when we saw the beach from the distance. When we found out we could ride a ferry across and go swimming, my son was ecstatic! The water and clarity were outstanding. We swam for approximately an hour and a half. It was the most peaceful place to chill out. There is a nice... More

Protesant Cay is across from the Hotel on the Cay, it's very scenic. You'll find many restaurants here on the board walk to please everyone.

we have stayed for years and loved the entire staff and the grounds and beach are wonderful. They have everything you need or want to do right on the property. The ferry offers quick trips to town and the watersports rental place offers all kinds of fun things to do. The snorkeling is the best

Being on a small all inclusive island just a few hundred yards from the main island made the vacation in St Croix amazing and completely relaxing. The hotel staff and accommodation are the best! 360 views of paradise. Complete access to the main island. A ferry runs continuously from sun up to well after sunset. A must for anyone going...

We actually stayed here for our vacation. When we stayed, it was pretty much just a few other guests from the hotel. Perfect. We felt as if it was our very own private beach. Very clean, white sand, no rocks, bar/restaurant/bathrooms on premises.

Made an evening of it at Protestant Cay enjoying an evening buffet meal, listening to Steel Drums then being amazed by the Mocko Jumbies. The service was decent, don't expect fast service as you are on island time. We left after the Mocko Jumbies because the evening seemed to be dragging on. This definitely wasn't worth the expense of going.

Taxi ride over to a small cay was fun. The lady in the small shop was rather terse. The gentleman that helped with he chairs and cabana was very helpful.

We stayed at Hotel on the Cay and it was nice by Caribbean standards. The major advantage to staying on Protestant Cay is definitely the beautiful beach with it's view of downtown Christiansted and the fabulous staff at St. Croix Water Sports.
