Each beach on St. Croix seems to have a personality all its own, from the northside beaches which feature great snorkeling shallows, to the east end beaches which are rarely crowded if somewhat difficult to access.  Whether you're interested in participating in water sports or just splashing around in the surf, there is a beach for you on this gorgeous island.

Beach Choices In The Area

You will find a large number of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. To get full details any one of these beaches you can click on the names of the ones you'd like to know more about.

Mermaid Beach

Grotto Beach: One of the beaches set on the Buccaneer Resort's property, Grotto Beach features not only the sandy surf, but a pool, a grill, and three holes of the golf course. Buccaneer guests enjoy the possible watersports available here.

A second option worth considering is Mermaid Beach. Mermaid Beach is accessible via Buccaneer Resort, which is located at 5007 Estate Shoys in Christiansted. There is a paved parking lot, and if you are not a guest of the resort you will have to pay to park.

Chenay Bay Beach: Chenay Bay Beach is a one mils stretch of sand that Chenay Bay Beach Resort calls its own. Guests of the resort have access to all of the amenities set on the beach, making it an extra perk for staying at the hotel, but in truth, it is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.
