Christiansted is the largest town on St. Croix. It is centrally located on the north side of the island adjacent to beautiful Christiansted Harbor. Founded in 1733, it is a former capital of the Danish West Indies and its buildings and walkways are full of local color and history.

United States Founding Father and first Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, spent his teen years on St. Croix.

Solid stone buildings in pastel colors with bright red tile roofs line the cobblestone sidewalks, adding a touch of 18th-century European architectural style. Because the town was constructed by African slaves, there are many African influences in Christiansted's design as well, making it one of the few "African-Danish" towns in the world. The town's symmetry, with streets running at right angles to the waterfront, makes it popular for walking tours. The commercial area centers on King and Company streets, adjacent to the Christiansted National Historic Site. The historic site, managed by the US Park Service, includes many 18th century buildings including Fort Christianswaern, the Scale House, and Steeple Building. The town has several classic small hotels and many bars and restaurants.

The Caravelle Hotel and Casino is centrally located on the waterfront. Several scuba shops operate in the town as the boardwalk and wharf provide easy access to many diving and snorkeling attractions on the north side of the island. Protestant Cay and the Hotel on The Cay with a beautiful white sand beach, water sports center and beach bar/restaurant are a short 100 yard mini-ferry away. A trip to St. Croix is not complete without several visits to historic Christiansted.


Caravelle Hotel & Casino


Located on the waterfront in 18th century Christiansted, Caravelle Hotel & Casino faces the harbor with eastward views of Protestant Cay, Fort Christiansvaern, and westward views of the outmost point of the Judith’s Fancy neighborhood wherein lies the entrance to Salt River (the location of Columbus’s landing in 1493). Northward, when conditions are right, profiles of the other US and British Islands show on the horizon

Weddings / Romance

DID YOU KNOW THAT... Many couples are opting to save the money (not to mention the stress and hard work) of a big wedding at home by escaping to a Caribbean island for a combination wedding/honeymoon. Upon their return, they can share the event by showing the video and photographs at an informal reception.

All the islands are beautiful and, on some, weddings have become a major promotional tool. So why should you choose St. Croix above others?

Moving Here

DID YOU KNOW... In addition to it's long and rich multicultural history, friendly people, open spaces, the blue sea and near perfect year-round weather, there are a number of reasons to consider relocating to St Croix. Most importantly, the U.S. Virgin Islands, which includes St Croix, operate under U.S. law which is important in both business and personal matters. 

This means mainland US companies do business here including retail stores such as K-Mart, Radio Shack, Office Max, McDonald's and Wendy's. Also U.S. financial services including a variety of U.S. mortgage, insurance and banking companies offer local service.  U.S. cellular phone companies including AT&T and Sprint, both operate here.

Arriving By Cruise Ship

Our Port

The Ann E. Abramson Pier is named in honor of the Virgin Islands Public Works Commissioner who was responsible for much of the rejuvenation of the Frederiksted area. This is the pier where most of the large cruise ships dock, as well as military ships, submarines, and other naval vessels. From time to time, tall-ships especially from Denmark, can be seen here.

The dock itself has been a favorite diving place especially for viewing bright coral, sponges, and a multitude of fish life. A night dive should reveal the sea-horses unique to this pier. Visitors arriving at the pier often walk through the small town of Frederiksted and walk to the nearby beaches and beach club
