  • It's the most beautiful little spot of beach! The snorkeling was good, and the water was gorgeous! We used Caribbean Sea Adventures to take us out to this National Monument.  more »

  • One of the best, Pristine Beach that there is. You will need a Boat to get to it. Snorkeling was amazing around the island which has a protected Coral Reef. A Must go if you visit St. Croix!
  • Beautiful island with turquoise waters and a trail for hikers. You may even get to see a whale and her calf passing through the Puerto Rico trench from the lookout point.
