Sun in St. Croix #travel

Paradise found…

St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands (no passports needed for USA Citizens), offers a tranquil tropical destination for vacationers, honeymooners, scuba divers, and more. Rich in cultural diversity, St. Croix has a past filled with a fascinating history. Experience the unique culture of St. Croix through its arts, crafts, music, and more during a variety of festivals and cultural events throughout the year. St. Croix provides gorgeous beaches, world-class recreational activities, fine dining, casino action, and golf. Although only 22.7 miles long and 8 miles at its widest point, the landscape of St. Croix is surprisingly diverse. Visiting just the two main towns of Saint Croix will give you a glimpse of the island’s incredible history, from regal 18th and 19th-century homes in Christiansted to a tropical rain forest in Frederiksted.
