Cane Bay is the best beach on St. Croix. Why? It ranks best with sunbathers, snorkel enthusiasts, for walking, and is a perfect “kids” beach. Pictures don’t do it justice. The one thing you may note about the Virgin Islands is that the humidity can creep up there a bit. But when you’re in paradise, what really matters is the visual and the sun. A little humidity now and then never hurt anybody, Mom would say.
You can easily reach Cane Bay Beach from the main road. Parking is ample. You’ll share this beauty of a beach with world class scuba divers. Divers come from all over the world to experience what lies a few hundred yards offshore – “The Cane Bay Wall“. If you have dived the Cane Bay Wall, please let us know by filling out our contact form in the menu area. And if you have pictures to share, let us know and we’ll post them here with links to your site.
saThe Cane Bay Wall is where the ocean floor simply plunges to over 10,000 feet in a matter of yards. Look down and you’ll only see the sun glints as they are swallowed by the sheer darkness. But the beauty is in the wall of coral that hugs Cane Bay. It is simply one of the best dives in the world.
But back to the beach!
Spend the day at Cane Bay Beach, or just the afternoon, but make sure you are here for the sunset. And you will have no problem finding a great place to hang out, munch on some snack food and take God’s handiwork. You can come back tomorrow and start the whole experience over again. Yes, it’s “that” good.
Note, there’s another Cane Bay Beach in Tortola. While you’re in the Caribbean, you could check that one out or just view our review.
