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. Some have smooth sandy bottoms ideal for swimming, and others have rock and coral-lined entries perfect for snorkeling! Click here for our Beach Guide

Did you know... St. Croix is the only Caribbean Island where a diver can:
●Dive a wall that drops over 13,000 feet
●Dive a reef that is the largest living reef of any Caribbean Island
●Dive five wrecks that are within 100 yards of each other
●Dive a pier

 

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."
