City/town information
Step back in time when you wander the streets of Christiansted. Caribbean color mixed with old world European design. Brightly painted buildings are scattered along each block. If you wander the streets in the evenings, the shops are all shuttered. During the day they are open..selling unique clothing, jewelry and amazing local arts and crafts. Most of the shops close fairly early. Many restaurants are open for lunch along the boardwalk and tucked away in courtyards and gardens. Don't be afraid to try a place that looks like 'a hole in the wall'.. the food here is amazing. The restaurants are open until 9 or 10. Most are closed a night or two during the week, so best to either call or check the website when making plans. It's also a great idea to make reservations with the Covid occupancy restrictions right now. It's always a good idea to ask your server if there is anything on the menu that isn't available right away. Occasionally deliveries don't arrive on schedule or a popular item has already sold out. This holds true for the whole island, not just in Christiansted.

Frederiksted is the town on the west end of the island. Home to the cruise ship pier and rumors are that seahorses make their home there too! Take the time to scuba dive or snorkel there and see if you can spot one or two. Rainbow Beach is where it's at on Sunday..join in the fun, food and live music every weekend because it's SUNDAY FUNDAY! Any beach on the West end is a great place to watch the sunset..

Food scene
We can't visit the island without eating here at least once.. great pizza, fresh salads, cold beer and other beverages. It's all open air right on the water with some smaller private tables and also some larger tables where you might find yourself sharing space with others.. we have met some terrific people here!

Awesome little spot for breakfast or lunch..just a few steps off the Boardwalk. a wide range of menu options specializing in Venezuelan Arepas (kinda like a sandwich)..everything is homemade and fresh! Full bar service as well.. is a small place so there is sometimes a wait but it is worth it!

This is a bit of a hidden gem..tucked away in a courtyard in the middle of the block. A small sign hanging overhead is the only identification you have arrived. Open for breakfast and lunch, you'll find a wide range of coffee beverages and juices. an extensive breakfast and lunch menu including vegetarian and vegan options. My husband loves their blueberry pancakes!

Delicious fresh juices and smoothies can be found here as well as muffins, overnight oats and chocolate chia pudding! My favorite thing is to build my own acai bowl! Most breakfast options are vegetarian or vegan.. lunch items offer chicken and egg as well as a vegan option. (you can also take a yoga class here during your visit!) located in downtown Christiansted.

High upon the hill at the Coakley Bay condominiums..this restaurant has huge views and delicious food. Lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch are available. It's a bit of a drive from Mill Harbour.. the road follows the shore much of the time so it is a scenic trip and if you are heading out to the East end it is right on your way...even if you are not, it is still worth the effort!

There is a variety of cheeses and dairy products and many options for beer, wine and liquor.

Sightseeing
A trip to Buck Island is a must do excursion on any visit to St Croix. The elkhorn coral barrier coral reef sets it apart from other islands in the Caribbean. There is an underwater trail to snorkel or dive, a trail to hike for a view of the reef and the Virgin Islands to the north..or just lounge on the beach for a bit.. Caribbean Sea Adventures offers half and full day tours as well as other activities. Friendly, knowledgeable staff make a day with them memorable!

Jack's Bay and Isaac's Bay beaches are located on the very East End side of the island, near Point Udall. They are only accessible by foot so they tend to be a bit more private. The hike is fairly easy..and the path is well marked and packed earth most places. The reward is magnificent beaches with soft powdery sand.

The Eastern most point in the USA is here on St Croix. 360 degree views..not much to do here but enjoy the endless sea. It can be a bit windy FYI
