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.

Some of our favorite resorts:

Divi Carina Bay Resort

Divi Carina Bay All-Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino is a lively retreat nestled on the secluded eastern shoreline of beautiful St. Croix. The resort, 25 miles from the airport, lies along a 1000-foot stretch of white sand on Grapetree Beach. The clear waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands beckon travelers to take a dip, while hammocks stretched under swaying palms provide opportunities to dry-off and relax. The Vegas-style casino accommodates adventurous gamers looking to try their luck.

Enjoy modern beachfront guestrooms, poolside dining, watersports, live entertainment, and the value that comes with an all-inclusive package.

The Buccaneer

Treat yourself to a spectacular getaway at The Buccaneer, a luxurious beach resort that encompasses all the best St. Croix has to offer. Situated on 300 tropical acres, The Buccaneer is less than a five-minute drive from the historic town of Christiansted, where guests can enjoy a fine variety of shopping, dining, and sightseeing. This amazing resort hotel was founded in the 17th century and family-run for generations.

Renaissance St. Croix

Lush green mountains, unspoiled white sands, and crystal-clear waters await the discerning traveler at Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa. Nestled among the tropical scenery of Davis Bay, seven miles north of the airport, the resort offers 151 beautiful air-conditioned rooms, the convenience of Carambola Golf Course, and unparalleled snorkeling and diving opportunities.

Golfers will find the lavish fairways of the adjacent Carambola Golf Course surpass their expectations. Designed by Robert Jones, Sr., the course works its way through 6,843-yards of verdant, tropical terrain and houses 94 bunkers, along with its renowned par-three holes. On site, guests have their pick of four complimentary outdoor tennis courts, fishing, scuba and snorkeling services, and a jogging trail perfect for taking in the scenery while maintaining exercise habits.
