Pelican Cove Beach, also known as Cormorant Beach, is located on the North Shore of St. Croix, only a short drive from Christiansted. Home to two hotels and a condominium complex, Pelican Cove’s long stretch of sandy beach dotted with swaying palm trees has something to offer for everyone. With two restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks daily, restrooms, beach chairs, free parking, natural shade from trees, beach volleyball, kayaks for hotel guests, great snorkeling and more, Pelican Cove is the perfect place to spend a day or a whole week.
Parts of Pelican Cove Beach may be rocky, but there are areas conducive to swimming, just be aware as there can be strong current in this area. There is a stretch of reef just off the beach that is great for snorkeling. The towering palms lining the beach provide great natural shade, should you want to escape from the sun. The area of Pelican Cove Beach inside The Palms at Pelican Cove Resort in Little Princess, has been awarded the internationally recognized Blue Flag Award. Read More.
