As beautiful as Turtle beach, which is the on the west end of the island , looks from St Croix it is even more beautiful to stand on and swim in its perfect turquoise water. It is a screen saver come to life right under your feet. For the full experience of visiting an uninhabited island with a clean white sandy beach, I recommend getting there with one of the charters that is sail power only. The quiet ride with only the wind and the waves splashing off the hull is very soothing. We took Buck Island charters with capt. Carl on the Teroro II and they were excellent. Make sure you wear sandals or flip flops if you decide to take the walk around the back of the island to check out the tide pools as the trail gets covered with wet dead leaves and small branches in some spots. Just enough to not be comfortable under foot. Next time we go , we are planning on the trip up the trail into the forest and to the top of the ridge. Can't wait.
