Saint Croix

Slip into something comfortable—St. Croix, the largest of the United States Virgin Islands, where you'll feel at home under the American flag yet enjoy all the Caribbean's tropical charms. It's an easy flight from the U.S. mainland, prices are in American dollars, and everyone speaks English. That's why thousands of vacationers—families, couples, and singlesÿflock here annually to immerse themselves in our warm welcome, fascinating history, and spectacular waters.

Where are we? In the heart of paradise east of Puerto Rico and just 40 miles below our sister islands, St. Thomas and St. John. What will you find? Gorgeous sunshine and average air temperatures in the low 80s throughout the year—and equally warm waters in stunning shades of blue. But St. Croix's tourism is much more than great weather and water sports.

Our dramatic history is embodied in the ruins of sugar plantations scattered on hillsides and in two charming, Danish colonial towns. Our proud West Indian culture is on parade at free events all year long. Shops and art studios display duty-free wares created right here on island. A boardwalk beckons for leisurely seaplane-spotting in the harbor. Restaurants invite toe-wiggling in the sand or star-gazing in 18th century courtyards. And our casino-the only one in the Virgin Islands—offers a world of sophisticated fun.

You'll love St. Croix—from our warm "good morning" greetings to our dramatic sunsets at the close of the day. Come experience our island-we're waiting to welcome you.
