    • sandy bottom beaches?

      St. Croix Jun 24, 2016 at 12:44 PM

      got 2 kids. one like to snorkel and the other likes to just jump up and down in some surf. most beaches I have read about look very good for snorkeling. calm, somewhat rocky. but I need to have a few "go to" beaches for the little guy. I am not expecting big waves, but are there some beaches that have a little more surf and have sandy bottom? thanks.

      I just got a job at Eat@Canebay, I live near Golden Rock Shopping Center, and I don't have a vehicle yet. Do any of the $2.50 Taxi Busses run down to, or near Cane Bay or should I plan on getting as close as possible and walking the rest of the way?

      Can Someone Explain These Cab Fairs To Me?

      St. Croix Sep 30, 2014 at 6:31 PM

      I read that they charge per person, but here it says the price is for 1 or 2 people. I don't understand that. Are the prices listed here how much it costs for 1 person, or 2? Or is it the same?
      And how much do they charge for waiting?

    • Is St. Croix Safe?

      St. Croix Oct 2, 2013 at 7:09 AM

      Is St. Croix safe to visit? Other than the common sense precautions? I've read that St Thomas has become more dangerous recently, so I'm looking for an alternative island. Also is there a lot to see and do there? How are the beaches? The online pics don't seem as pretty as the other USVI. Thanks!

      Hotel recommendations

      St. Croix Sep 28, 2013 at 6:09 PM

      I thought I would book the hotel where someone I know stayed, but she said she didn't like it and wouldn't stay there again. Also I see on the internet that the hotel (Chenay Bay Beach Resort) is being sold the week I was going to stay there. I thought I was booking with the hotel direct, but I was not - I was booking with something called HotelPlus Destination Portal and they charged me 20% of the booking to cancel it even though I canceled it within 24 hours.

      Now I need to book another hotel. I would like it to be somewhere in the $125-$175/night range, in or near Christensted, with free on-site parking and free internet. And also I need there NOT to be a lot of stairs as I will be using a scooter. I have reserved a car. What we intend to do is visit the fort (I can walk some) and snorkel (which I can do) and go out to dinner in various places.

      I looked at King Christian Hotel, but that doesn't have parking and the reviews are terrible. I've looked at Holger Danske Hotel, Hibiscus Beach Resort. Would either of them be OK or is there another one I should consider?

    • Customized tour

      St. Croix Sep 8, 2013 at 1:48 PM

      We will be in St Croix one day only, during a cruise. Four of us lived on St Croix for a while, long ago, as children. We'd like to see the places offered on a standard 4 hr tour, but would like to add a few stops to drive by the locations of our grandparents house and a couple of other places we remember. Do you know which tour companies would work with us, or would the taxi/tour drivers who wait near the pier for people to come off the boat be knowledgeable and trustworthy?

      I have a few random questions. I am heading to St. Croix in Early February.

      1. Is there any decent surfing that time of year?

      2. I was planning on renting a car, but I thought it might be more fun to rent a scooter or something along those lines. Any suggestions on the car rental situation?

      3. I am staying with a friend of mine...but I would much prefer to build some sort of a hut on the beach and build fires at night. Is this something people typically do?

      Good snorkeling beach in St. Croix

      St. Croix Jun 7, 2010 at 6:56 PM

      I 'll be spending only a day in St. Croix and don't want to go to Buck Island but do want to swim and snorkel. I've read about a day pass to the beach at the Sand Castle (supposedly there is decent walk-in snorkeling). Also, apparently there's a snorkel tour that originates there with a40 westend dive trip to a couple of reefs. Anyone know about the Sand Castle day pass or westend diving with St. Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Harbor Night?

      St. Croix Jan 31, 2008 at 1:25 PM

      Can anyone tell me what Harbor Nights in Frederiksted are like? If there is a Harbor Night, does that mean there is a cruise ship there?
      We went to St. Croix several years ago. We attended what I think was a Harbor Night, but most of it was cancelled due to rain. There was, though, a terrific youth group playing African type drums with girls dancing in front. I'd like to try to see them again. We'll be in St. Croix from March 12-26.
