Why visit St Croix?
St Croix is the largest of the US Virgin islands.
Though gaining attention in recent years, the island has long been relatively ignored as a travel destination compared to our sister islands of St Thomas and St John.
Roughly 3 times the size of St Thomas but with the same population, you won’t find large crowds or traffic here but rather wide open spaces, beautiful beaches and friendly faces.
While St Thomas and St John seem geared more towards shopping and large resorts, St Croix boasts many smaller and more intimate boutique hotels and B&B’s as well as many private homes and condos to rent and should be the top pick for those who wish to do more than sit on the beach with a pretty drink.
St Croix offers SO much more in the way of outdoor activities for the adventurous traveler.
Enjoy activities such as scuba diving, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, a zip-line over the rain-forest and day sails to Buck Island to name a few.
And of course the beaches…you can check out a few of my personal favorites on the Beaches page from the top menu bar under Traveler Tips
And the FOOD ! See my Dining page also under Traveler Tips for where to find the best local cooking.
Come visit St Croix and see why we are so much more than just another pretty beach !
