Northstar Bay

Northstar Bay Beach is located on the North Shore of St. Croix, between Davis Bay and Cane Bay. This beach offers great snorkeling, and even better scuba diving! In fact, it is a local favorite for the diving. The water here is pretty deep – about 200 yards off shore the ocean depth plunges from about 30 feet to 10,000 feet!  There is an abundance of marine life, making it an ideal spot for scuba divers (accessible from shore or by boat), as well as snorkelers. This beach is a popular location, so if you’re looking for a quieter experience you may want to try it during the week instead of on the weekend.
