Walked from the Pier to Sand Castle on the Beach. Beautiful little hotel and only $10 for two chairs, an umbrella and a welcome drink. The owners Ted and Chris were always present and making sure everyone was happy and having a good time. The beaches here on a whole are rocky but there were clear paths to enter the water, which was divine. Took a nice slow walk back to ship. Most establishments were closed as it was Sunday but a few stalls and bars did open. I will definitely return here, if given the chance as I had a wonderful time. Read Less

We love St Croix. We are biased because we actually own a villa there but there are many good reasons to visit for a day, a week, or forever. It's not your typical port of call for cruise ships. There are no Diamond Internationals ... Read More
We love St Croix. We are biased because we actually own a villa there but there are many good reasons to visit for a day, a week, or forever. It's not your typical port of call for cruise ships. There are no Diamond Internationals or Margaritavilles. You will find a laid back vibe in an interesting town of Fredericksted and the most friendly people anywhere. Cruise ships are much less common here than in nearby St Thomas so the locals put their heart into it. There are pop up tents selling local goods and nearly restaurants and bars for relaxing time. Try a locally brewed Leatherback beer! For more shopping and more upscale restaurants as well as a pretty boardway with bars and restaurants take a taxi or a tour to nearly Christiansted. This small city is also full of some great Danish architecture. For more adventure, go on a hike in the rain forest or jeep tour on rough dirt roads with great views. You can walk to a nice beach right near the ship, down a bit is The Fred Hotel, a small boutique hotel with chairs and umbrellas. A little further is Rainbow Beach, a great spot. A cab ride away is Cane Bay with great snorkling and the famous Wall for scuba divers. Definitely get off and venture into & then beyond F'sted. You're in a US flagged paradise, so enjoy! Read Less

Walked (about a mile or so) to SandCastle Beach resort. Water SUPER clear. $10 pp gets use of beach, chairs, umbrellas and 1 drink (nice rum punch). Owners incredibly friendly, but as this is a "resort" drinks are priced accordingly (meaning don't be looking for that $10 bucket of beers ;-) Beach is smaller, and some large rocks to avoid getting in and out of water, so be aware if have mobility issues.

St. Croix basically has nothing but a beach right by the ship. There are a few kiosks. You can take an island bus to Frederiksted (which is a bigger city) for next to nothing or pay a lot more for a taxi. The taxi drivers lied to us about the bus and said it didn’t go there. Ask a local for bus information. We did not end up going to Frederiksted. I’m a children’s author and did an author visit at a local school instead. Read Less

We met in laws who live there.. The port is super long..so if you have any mobility issues please be aware..The stewarts said there was a free shuttle to get you to the end of the pier but we did not see it (until I returned) So my husband went back on board and I walked to the end of the pier to meet my daughters in laws who took me on a tour of the beautiful island. On the way back as I was walking down the pier the free shuttle showed up Read Less

Beaches right near ship are fine and water is really gorgeous!! We came in on a Sunday & I read town is dead on Sundays as it should be on the Lords day. It was also my B day so I wanted to stay close to that premium liquor package! :)

We went to the beach next to the pier, it was great to lay around and do light snorkeling for free.

Went to Rainbow Beach on our own, a very short ride from the pier. Nice beach with water sports rentals, a view of the ship, restaurant, and chair & umbrella rental,

I was very pleasantly surprised to see the resilience of the people of the island. They seem to have really banded together in the aftermath of the awful hurricane.

We wandered around the port. Lovely area. We hadn't found an excursion we wanted to do, but this worked out fine.
