Great Beach! You can rent umbrellas, there are wave runners and other activities available at Rainbow Beach. There is a restaurant nearby to get some food. This is probably the most active beach we visited while staying in St. Croix.

Shelling and looking for pieces of Chaney. Snorkling or walking the beach. Eating at the restaurant. Make a day of this beautiful spot. Make new friends or just sit on the beach and watch the waves roll in.

The Beach is small and crowded. The price for 2 lounge chairs and umbrella $30.00 is higher then prices at the much better beaches on other Caribbean islands, considering the size and quality of umbrella- it even doesn’t give you a shade for 2 persons....More

Relax with your family on this quiet, sandy beach with crystal clear water. Put up an umbrella and just sink into the scenery of STX

There’s no drop off to speak of into the water. I’d recommend taking the shuttle bus which runs between the cruise ship entrance and the beach. I believe it’s less than $10 one way.
