Things To Do In St. Croix

Did you know... St. Croix is ringed by beaches of all shapes and sizes, some are long white sand stretches, others are small patches shaded by low sea grape trees and towering coconut palms.

Did you know... Shopping in St. Croix is a sight-seeing tour in itself! Quaint shops are tucked in historic buildings made of cut coral, molasses mortar, and Danish bricks brought as ballast on the trading ships of the 1700 and 1800s! Interesting shaded courtyards in these restored buildings house shopping arcades. Exploring is fun - there is treasure at every turn! Click here for our Shopping Duty Free Section.

St. Croix is all about Scuba and water sports and at each and every dive site you can see many types of tropical fish and sea life; Angel fish, Jacks, Barracuda, Dolphin, Flounder, Puffer fish, Snapper, Reef Sharks, various small colorful Cucumbers. If it lives in the ocean, you can see it on a dive with a St. Croix dive Shop! St. Croix’s professional instructor/guides are experienced with all of our dive sites and enjoy sharing their knowledge with our divers. Most shops dive seven days a week both at pre-determined times and with custom dive times and trips to meet your schedule. Come join us in our exploration of the unique underwater world.

DID YOU KNOW... Spacious, pristine beauty is a rare find, yet on St. Croix it is in abundance everywhere you look! Sweeping vistas reveal tropical waters glistening in every shade of blue imaginable, and a few you never though possible! Rising hills bordering the rain forest tower with giant mahogany trees 150 years old. Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Red Ginger, Ixora, Poinsettia, and Bird of Paradise provide dramatic splashes of vibrant colors throughout the year. Even the trees here flower -- the fragrant frangipani in red, pink, yellow or white; the yellow or pink poui, striking at its height of 80 feet in full bloom; and the majestic Royal Poinciana, with its seed pods over two feet in length and vibrant blossoms giving it the nickname "the flame tree."

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
