The West End of St. Croix is the leeward side of the island. With calm waters, white sand beaches and laid back people, the West End is the perfect place to lime. This is where you’ll find the small town of Frederiksted, the only port of call on St. Croix. Bustling when a cruise ship is in port, every other day Frederiksted is a sleepy island town. Head to Frederiksted and the West End to catch a spectacular sunset, splash in the tranquil waters and meet some friendly locals. Dive the wrecks and Frederiksted Pier and look for some of the many seahorses and pufferfish that call the pier home.Rent jet skis, try your skills at stand up paddle boarding or enjoy a casual meal, a cocktail and some live music at one of the many West End beach bars. If you are looking to enjoy something inland, visit the botanical gardens, take an ATV tour of the rainforest, tour the Cruzan Rum distillery or visit one of the historical landmark museums. And don’t miss Sandy Point, the longest stretch beach in the U.S. Virgin Islands, with pristine white sand and picturesque turquoise water. If you are looking to really slow down and enjoy the postcard worthy beaches of St. Croix, head to the West End!
