This was our favorite snorkel site on St. Croix out of 6 places that we went. Go to the far right end of the beach and you will start to see buoys in front of a lavender-colored house. Go out right there and start visiting each of the buoys. Just to the left of the entry point and about 100... More

We had heard mixed things about this beach, so we didn't make it a priority. We regretted this! We visited Rainbow Beach toward the end of our trip and wished we would have been earlier in the week. The people were friendly, you could hear a good mix of beach music in the distance from Rhythms, and the water was... More

Nice beach! You can rent many items to have fun in the sun and surf and also enjoy food and drink nearby.

This is a gorgeous beach. And they have a great restaurant right on beach called rhythms. Great service from Alex and Audi at Rhythms. Great people. This beach did get a bit rough as sundown approached.

Great beach, clean with chair rentals, jet ski rentals, a volley ball net. Very low key place to spend the afternoon. Great food at Rythms with nice seating and service.

Rum, sand, sunshine, and warm water! Great beach to just hang out and enjoy the water on a Sunday. Sunday = Funday. Get to the beach before noon and the parking is limited and it fills up quick! Super fun day at the beach for just hanging out, enjoying the sand and waves. Snorkeling was really cool too. I believe... More

We rented the jet skis here. Plenty of room to stretch them out on there buoyed course. My son would go back daily.

After reading reviews and having locals we'd spoken with tell us Rainbow Beach is a must see, all five of us were very disappointed. This was our least favorite beach of all those we visited while in St. Croix. Maybe we were there on an unfavorable day, but the water was not clear enough for snorkeling and to say there... More

Chairs and umbrellas are stacked for the winter set, but NO ONE is here during the summer. We had the beach to ourselves - including off shore reef areas. Easy access and parking provides easy stroll.
