The easternmost place in the United States offers a variety of unique diversions, from pristine beaches to fascinating historical sites.
Absorb Crucian culture in Christiansted and Frederiksted, the two largest towns on the island, explore Buck Island—one of only three underwater national monuments in the U.S—or just enjoy the Caribbean sun on one of our many breathtaking beaches. On St. Croix, there is simply no excuse not to have fun.
This beach is named after Christopher Columbus, who landed here during his second voyage in 1493. Here Columbus encountered a Carib Indian tribe, leading to the first documented conflict between Native Americans and Europeans. Today the area is a protected national park.
