What's special about St. Croix, USVI?
As the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix has 82 square miles of everything from tropical forests to mountains to white sand beaches. Along with its varied topography, St. Croix also offers up a variety of sights, activities, and attractions for its visitors. Whether you like outdoor adventures, shopping, fine dining, or just relaxing on a beach, you’ll be right at home in this Caribbean paradise.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, St. Croix is world famous for its scuba diving and snorkeling. The water is warm and clear, giving you an exciting glimpse of colorful sea creatures. One stop to make is at Buck Island, which can be easily reached by boat and is the only underwater National Park in the U.S. Hiking, golfing, body surfing, exploring tide pools, or just strolling the beach are other activities that will give you an up-close look at the island and its natural beauty.
Compared to the other Virgin Islands, St. Croix is also unique in that tourism isn’t its main source of revenue, which means there’s a whole different vibe here. You won’t find a lot of the tourist traps or hotspots like you would on St. Thomas, but you will find funky island shops, great restaurants featuring Caribbean cuisine, and tons of local history. You’ll also find great private villas to stay as your choice of accommodation. In colonial times, sugar plantations were huge and there are numerous plantations, historic homes, and museums open for tours that detail the island’s unique history. The rum distillery is another must-see, with its fascinating tour and rum samples afterward. St. Croix is also the only place in the Caribbean where you can not only watch the famous beer-drinking pigs guzzle a cold one, you can even give them a drink yourself!
Because St. Croix is less developed, you won’t find an overabundance of hotel or resort chains on the island, which is nice for people looking for a peaceful and serene beach vacation. There are plenty of fine places to stay, though, and you have your choice of opting for a hotel or renting one of the private villas on the island. Whatever you choose, you’ll have a comfortable place to call home while you enjoy all that the island has to offer.
