THE ISLAND & RESORT
St. Croix is part of the U.S. Virgin Islands and is an island paradise complete with lush tropical hills, warm and brilliantly turquoise water, a rich history and a wonderfully tropical climate. It is the hidden gem of the Caribbean! You will find beautiful white sand beaches…fabulous, tropical weather…great dining and restaurants…lots of duty free shopping…incredible SCUBA diving…three golf courses and two historic and charming towns…all wrapped up in a friendly and laid back island atmosphere. You won’t find the crowds that many other Caribbean destinations can have, and it’s easy to travel to St. Croix from the mainland. U.S. citizens don’t need a passport. “Saint Croix” is only a 30 minute flight from the international airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and direct flights from the states on American Airlines (via Miami), Delta (via Atlanta) and JetBlue (via San Juan).
St. Croix is a divers paradise (take that, Bonaire!). Where else in the Caribbean can you dive a wall, a shipwreck, a reef, and a pier all on the same island? In addition, St. Croix offers both shore and boat diving, so no matter how you choose to dive, St. Croix has got you covered.
On the West end you can dive the Frederickstadt Cruise Ship Pier, or dive on a number of shipwrecks that litter the coast. In Cane Bay, you can access the famous “Cane Bay Wall” right from the beach. Skin Diving Magazine calls the US Virgin Islands “the most beautiful area in the world” for diving. St. Croix’s north shore also features numerous underwater caves, caverns, tunnels, and pinnacles. The 1,000 ft deep Salt River Canyon off the shores of Christianstadt is very popular as well.
