“Great town but be careful if you're out after dark”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Fredriksted is a great small town in St. Croix. There are a few restaurants and things to see (not as much as in Christiansted), but I'd caution any tourists staying out after dark. Petty theft is a problem everywhere on the island and while most locals will be nice to you (if a little shy), some are pretty down on their luck and wouldn't mind relieving you from your wallet. Use common sense!

“Not Much”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I hope 4,000 cruise ship passengers plan their shore trip outside of Frederiksted, because there's not much in town. The main reasons to go are two restaurants: Polly's near the pier, and Turtle's Deli, south down the Strand by a public boat launch.

“First time to St. Croix”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Did not realize the poverty of most; and the expensive grocery prices. Walking about was very limiting. People were friendly. Our choice of hotel was relaxing

“S.C.U.B.A”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

I went to St. Croix with a group of friends and was able to take advantage of the great tourism promotion they were having.
We started diving with another company but felt they were not friendly and were not the best dive masters for us. We switched to S.C.U.B.A (St. Croix Ultimate Blue Water Adventures) and had a great time. Captain Jon and dive master Simeon were great! Patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. I am not much on night dives but the pier at Frederiksted night dive is a must!
SCUBA also has their shop right behind Polly's at the Pier and have great deals and service. Friendly service all the way!

“What a Wonderful Shop!”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

Great selection of gifts that spoke of the "island"! Very Reasonable prices and Great folks to chat with who owned and ran the shop. Really serious about pleasing their customers with the time of day to talk about the island too! One of the best shops on the West side!
