Cramer Park

Located on the eastern end of St. Croix, Cramer Park features a beautiful, remote beach experience that immerses its guests in nature. The calm, shallow water and the soft white sand provide the visitor-friendly environment, while nearby Farleigh Dickinson Territorial Park provides another excellent getaway.

If you're looking for a quiet part of the coast, away from crowded tourist attractions, you should consider going off the beaten path to Cramer Park.

How to Access The Beach
Visitors should expect to drive to access Cramer Park, as it sits on the far eastern coast of the island. East End Road links together with Cramer Park, where cars can park directly next to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Cramer Park remains relatively isolated, as it is surrounded by Knight Bay and Boiler Bay, each of which have remained undeveloped. The area is filled with palm trees and soft sand, while picnic tables, bathrooms, and bbq grills lie near the entrance. Visitors can see the sillohette of Buck island in the distance, while lush green hills border fill the coast.

Perhaps the most convenient amenity here: picnic tables.

Cramer Park does have public restrooms for your convenience. The water in the area is of good snorkeling quality, so bring your equipment if you want to check out what lies beneath the surface.
