St. Croix is ringed by beaches of all shapes and sizes, some are long white sand stretches, others are small patches shaded by low sea grape trees and towering coconut palms. Some have smooth sandy bottoms ideal for swimming, and others have rock and coral-lined entries perfect for snorkeling!
St. Croix is the only Caribbean Island where a diver can explore a wall that drops over 13,000 feet, dive a reef that is the largest living reef of any Caribbean Island, dive five wrecks that are within 100 yards of each other and dive a pier.
Shopping in St. Croix is a sight-seeing tour in itself! Quaint shops are tucked in historic buildings made of cut coral, molasses mortar, and Danish bricks brought as ballast on the trading ships of the 1700 and 1800s! Interesting shaded courtyards in these restored buildings house shopping arcades.
Experience the thrill of riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). Drive one of our ATV's on a guided excursion along mountainous trails through the Sub-Tropical Rain Forest, exploring historical ruins, and viewing amazing vistas of the north shore and the island. Fun, excitement, and adventure all wrapped up into one great tour. Each ATV is designed to accommodate two persons so bring your family and enjoy a true island adventure. You may also take a jeep tour of the island and rainforest.. This guided tour takes you down to the remote tidal pools and your last stop is visiting St. Croix's beer drinking pig.
Book a tour on a catamaran and experience a personalized tour of Buck Island National Monument. The Underwater trail is a snorkel sight second to none with visibility up to 100 feet and only accessible by boat.
The island's barrier reef shelters thousands of tropical fish and turtles, that are fortunate to live in this protected marine environment. Step onto Buck Island's beautiful white sand beaches and hiking trails that reach the top of the island for mesmerizing views.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We bought this property in 2004 before our first child was born. My husband and I love traveling and we knew we didnt want to stop after the birth of our child. We also knew it would be more difficult to travel with children and we wanted the security of a tropical paradise within the USA. So, St. Croix is our second home now and many happy memories are being made!
Why the Owner Chose Christiansted: Beautiful beach, gardens and pool. Stores and restaurants within walking distance. Unit is on the first floor -- much easier access when you have two small children! Unlike the majority of the condos, our unit has CENTRAL A/C (my husband installed it, he is a master A/C mechanic).
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Return home after a hot day in the sun and turn on the central a/c! No need to spend money on bottled water. We have a reverse osmosis water system in our condo which will provide you with plenty of clean drinking water!
