Introducing St. Croix

The USVI’s largest and most remote island has managed to remain relatively undiscovered, allowing it to retain a secluded, authentic atmosphere. Featuring a lush rainforest in the west and an arid, cactus-covered landscape in the east, St. Croix offers a little bit of everything – not to mention some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the Caribbean. 

St. Croix is located on the second largest coral reef system in the Caribbean, and the best diving can be found along “The Wall,” a vertical stretch of living coral that extends for about seven miles parallel to the North Shore. A wide variety of rare fish and sea life –sea horses, sea turtles, nurse sharks, and more – can be spotted at a range of depths, making St. Croix an ideal spot for beginners as well as more experienced divers. Night dives are particularly special during the new moon, when sea creatures light up in an effect called bioluminescence. 

St. Croix has a fascinating history as well; inhabited by native tribes, Spanish settlers, the Dutch, English, French, Knights of Malta, Danish, and now owned by the United States, the island has experienced the influence of many cultures, cuisines, and traditions. Once the main sugar producing island in the Caribbean, St. Croix is now home to over 150 sugar mill ruins, which visitors can learn about at the Whim Plantation Museum. The island also is home to two main historical towns: Christiansted, home to Fort Christiansvaern, a Danish fort built in the late 1700s, and Frederiksted, the site of the emancipation of slaves in the then-Danish West Indies in 1848 (referred to by locals as “Freedom City”). 

A villa vacation on St. Croix is perfect for anyone looking for a low-key, relaxing getaway on island with a quiet and remote feel, yet within easy reach of St. John and St. Thomas.

Expert Tips

“Stop by Mt. Pellier Domino Club, a bar/restaurant tucked away in the rainforest on the northwest side of the island, to try the owner Norma’s legendary Mama Wanna (homemade liquor made with rum, honey, and spices) and enjoy the authentic island atmosphere. You can also buy a (non-alcoholic) beer or two to share with JJ and Oreo, the Domino Club’s famous beer-drinking pigs. Golfers must tee off on Carambola Golf Course, a Trent Jones signature course that winds through the verdant North Shore. Other courses include the picturesque Buccaneer Golf Club or the 9-hole Reef Golf Course, both on the East End.”  Tracy, USVI Villa Rental Specialst
