Beaches on St. Croix

Enjoy White Sand Beaches on St. Croix

All St. Croix beaches are publicly accessible and you only need to make sure you watch out for restrictions based on private residences or those meant to protect local flora and fauna.

The beaches on St. Croix are beautiful and many are simply just different sections of one long continuous beach. A typical beach is characterized by white sand, crystal clear blue water and gentle surf. Because of the wide variety of beaches on St. Croix there is literally something for everyone – from the secluded, hard-to-get-to hideaway to the massively popular, family friendly locations. As you’d expect, because of this variation, the amenities and attractions differ from beach to beach.

St. Croix Beaches

The Grotto, Cane Bay, and Isaac’s Bay are three of St. Croix’s many popular beaches.

The Grotto

The Grotto is a sandy beach with a rocky area near the shoreline. It is located next to the Buccaneer Resort, which offers free access for guests and a nominal fee for parking for non-hotel guests. The long beach is great for a stroll and there are kayaks, chairs and food and drink available from the Resort.

Cane Bay

Cane Bay is known for its amazing snorkeling and diving—just a quarter mile off of the shore, the depth drops to 1000 feet, providing views of vast amounts of marine life. There are plenty of trees along the beach for shade and the white sand is perfect for sunbathing, sand castle building or taking a long walk. There are plenty of amenities for all walks of life on the beach— everything from a dive and kayak shops to restaurants and bars you can cool off at.

Isaac’s Bay

If you’re looking for a secluded slice of paradise, you won’t be disappointed with Isaac’s Bay. The beach can only be accessed by hiking from Jack’s Bay or by boat. The area is protected by the Nature Conservancy because it is home to Hawksbill and Green Turtle nests and features deep, tranquil waters that are perfect for snorkeling or just relaxing.
