Saint Croix is the epitome of what a Caribbean island should be: peaceful, relaxing, private and just down-right beautiful. Sea life and coral reefs hug the island, making it the perfect place for scuba diving and snorkeling. Beaches range from the quiet cove to the long stretch of sand and surf.

There are two towns on the island – Christiansted and Frederiksted. Christiansted, a National Historic Site, has narrow cobblestone streets and buildings constructed from blocks of coral. It’s the place for restaurants and shopping on Saint Croix. Frederiksted, with its Victorian-style houses, is great for music and nightlife.
