The Virgin Islands Best On-Line Guide

Attractions on St. Croix, Virgin Islands

St. Croix encompasses 84 square miles of history, beaches, beautiful vistas and culture. The island has many sites to see and enjoy; from wild life reserves and historical towns to underwater marine parks and botanical gardens. Both Christiansted and Frederiksted can be explored on a walking tour or self guided. Outside of town you can take a tour or rent a car and take in the island at your own pace.

St. Croix is rich with historic sites; most are associated with the plantation agriculture that made St. Croix a rich sugar producing island during Danish reign. You can take a driving tour and visit many of beautiful points and buildings of historical importance; like windmills, great houses, plantation villages, schoolhouses and churches. There are many excellent examples of colonial architecture all over the island and you will no doubt see dozens of mills scattered across St. Croix.

St. Croix is the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands and its topography is very different from it's sister islands. There are large expanses of agricultural flat lands, very mountainous and lush forest and dry grassy plains. Several wildlife and ecological reserves offer you the rare opportunity to see endangered birds, turtles and incredibly diverse marine ecology. Exploring these natural areas is a treasure and will make for a memorable vacation.

With so much to see and do in St. Croix it is a great idea to browse through the photos and descriptions of St. Croix’s attractions and make a plan of the things you would like to visit while vacationing on the island. If you are visiting St. Croix on a cruise your time is more limited, select the attractions and/or beaches you would like to visit in order to make your day on St. Croix rewarding and fulfilling!
