Cruisers, young couples, and families alike will truly enjoy a visit to the amazing island of St. Croix, the largest of the Virgin Islands in the U.S. territory that is entirely surrounded by the Caribbean Sea! The island is just 28 miles by 7 miles and the territory's capital, Charlotte Amalie, is actually located on another island, St. Thomas.
NOTE: I was thrilled to capture this amazing scene of the rainbow over St. Croix.
Visit the islands second largest city of Frederiksted, "Freedom City", and travel the short distance to the islands largest city of Christiansted or vice versa! It is approximately a 30-minute car or taxi ride between the two cities. If you choose to rent a car, be aware, they do drive on the left side of the road and you will need to find parking, but if you take a taxi you get dropped off at the most central area of either city.
Both cities have much to offer, with a variety of historic sites, nature activities, water sports, horseback riding, scuba diving and snorkeling, and lets not forget the food and shopping!
This itinerary will focus on the two cities of Frederiksted and Christiansted, over a two-day period. If you are a cruiser, your port will be in Frederiksted and you can use one day of this itinerary to guide you through this sleepy town, or take the public bus and use the other half of this itinerary and spend the day in Christiansted before you head out for your next port!
