“awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

The most eastern point of the U.S. The views are great and lots of picture taking. As were leaving, we took a little detour down a dirt road with our jeep down to the beach. It as like a piece of heaven. A must do.

“Eastern most point in the United States”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

While in St. Croix, VI, my husband and I decided to see Point Udall, the eastern most point in the United States. It is a panoramic view of St. Croix, even where you can see the other islands, like St. Thomas, and St. John. It also allows you to see the mountains and the sea that come together as one. You feel like you have reached Heaven! Beautiful!

“Exciting Part of America!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We seen Point Udall our first day of being in St. Croix. It's awesome to see this brand new piece of American history! Not only that, but there are such great views from the site as well. We also went back later on during our trip to watch the sunrise at Point Udall. It was beautiful, and something you just must do to appreciate the world! We also drove up to the point a 3rd time to hike to Jack and Issac's Bay, which was so worth it! A beautiful hike, all in all. Good advice would be to wear proper hiking shoes. We wore our regular tennis shoes and it went great! Once you reach the bay, it's simply amazing. So nice and secluded! Plus, more great views. You must see Point Udall on your St. Croix trip!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

The most eastern point of the United States. Scenic drive along the sea to this memorial. Great photo opps and the view is endless. No beaches or restaurants but worth seeing.

“Point Udall Monument”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Point Udall is a spectacular overlook and the easternmost point in the United States, so it's worth a look. There is a monument constructed at the tip that is appropriate for such a location. However, the monument is clearly an astronomical observatory a la Stone Henge. Posts with holes that sight at other carefully laid out posts, etc. Clearly a nice touch. However, there is no explanation, or even a mention of what these alignments are. Even the lengthy brass plaque. only mentions that it functions as a sundial as it casts a shadow on another stone at noon. Again, nice, but just the surface of what was so obviously constructed there. No one seems to know or care. It made me wonder, was it aligned wrong so the government ignore it, or are these wonderful alignments, which could be quite an event at Solstaces, just lost?
