We stayed at the condos nearby and found this beach to be perfect. With both an area to swim and an area to snorkel, you've got it all! I was so glad we picked this place to call home for a week. It was perfect!

Reef protecting shallow water near beach provides habitat for many reef fish - it is also a hatchery for larger fish. Out beyond this area there is a lot of dead coral providing habitat for larger fish and occasional turtles and sharks. When the wind...More

I heard there are new owners so we'll give them another try...service needs some polishing! Mimosas went from a decent pour to a shooter.... Our food did not arrive as we had ordered it... Great view and beautiful setting!

You can access this beach by paying the access fee at the Palms hotel or by walking up the beach. The reef meets the shore near here so this is an excellent spot for snorkeling and is particularly good for night snorkeling.

St Croix has a lot of great beaches. The view from this beach really highlights the blue Caribbean water better than most. Great sand and always a breeze. Restaurant on site.

Small strip of sand and of course has the normal seaweed piles. If you are going to get into the water, bring water shoes to protect from the rocks and broken coral inshore in most of the parts except in front of the restaurant. Snorkeling...More

Not sure what all the hype is. This beach was adequate at best. There was a lot of seaweed on the beach and nasty stray dogs running around, it seemed like no mans land. No one was around and the condos seemed beat to sht....More

We stayed in the pelican cove condos and we were so excited to snorkel this beach as we heard it was great to snorkel. The beach and water are overrun with sargassum. It's stinks and it's gross. The people at the restaurant were saying they...More

As above too far you can get a cab at the port - check and agree price for trip and depending on how long in port arrange a return
