Sprat Hall Beach is located on the West End of St. Croix just outside the town of Frederiksted, across from the Sprat Hall Plantation and north of Rainbow beach. The beach here is a bit rocky, but that combined with the calm water does make for good snorkeling. The water here is generally calm, so this also a good spot for swimming. Or, you have one mile of beach to walk along while the sunsets beside you. There are no facilities on Sprat Hall Beach, so bring your own chair and sun protection if you want to spend the day.

Use the ladder to climb back up and …. do it again!Read More
