Christiansted
If you love the beach, but also want a little culture, you'll love Christiansted, one of St. Croix's two waterfront towns. Historic churches, charming courtyards, shaded walkways, stone arches, antique lampposts and rows of restored townhouses add to the city's appeal. Relax on a tranquil, white sand beach or float in the aquamarine water. Enjoy the many shops, boutiques, galleries, cafes and restaurants, or visit attractions like Fort Christianvaern, the Customs House and the Old Scale House.
