Favorite St. Croix Beach Bars

Let’s face it, when you think of vacationing in the Caribbean you imagine yourself with your toes in the sand and a tropical cocktail (or beer) in your hand as you look out over the brilliant blue water.  Well, St. Croix has a variety of beach bars that will allow you to make your dreams of sipping a cold drink beachside come true!

On the North Shore…

Lounge on the picturesque beach at Cane Bay, check out the walk-up bar offered by Eat @ Cane Bay just across the street from the beach.  Or take a break from the sun, rinse off your feet, and enjoy a cocktail and some delicious food at Eat’s open-air bar overlooking the palm tree lined beach.

 On the Christiansted boardwalk…

Okay, it’s not a beach, but if you want to indulge in cocktails overlooking the water then head to Christiansted’s boardwalk.  Enjoy cool ocean breezes on the boardwalk as you look out over Christiansted Harbor.  Stop into the hopping local favorite RumRunner’s, and don’t forget to stop by the GoToStCroix.com Christiansted Harbor Web Cam located at RumRunner’s Deck Bar and wave hello to your friends and family.  Many evenings you can enjoy some live music or crab races at Shupe’s on the Boardwalk, and you can throw your leftovers to the hungry tarpon waiting just off the boardwalk. Want a simple beer without all the frills? Then go to The Mill Boardwalk Bar & Brick Oven Pizza  and sit next to the sugar mill while you enjoy a cold one.

 On the East End…

If you really want to relax, you can get beachside service with resort amenities at The Buccaneer’s Mermaid Beach.  Take your cocktail with you as you enjoy the warm, clear Caribbean water, or grab a lounge chair and relax in the shade of the palm tree lined beach.  If you feel like driving around to the South Shore, Divi Carina Bay Resort has Bay’s Big Al’s bar, offering great frozen cocktails both pool and beachside.  Relax in one of the many lounge chairs or hammocks as you sip your cocktail and listen to the sounds of the Caribbean ocean.

 On the West End…

Visit Beach Side Cafe at Sand Castle on the Beach Resort to enjoy great drinks with your toes in the sand or floating in the calm turquoise waters. Sand Castle’s is the place to be on days cruise ships are in port, since it is within walking distance (1/2 mile), or a short taxi ride from the Frederiksted Pier.

 No matter which direction you are heading, or what kind of vibe you are looking for, St. Croix has a beach bar just waiting for you!  So, enjoy the sand between your toes, the sun on your face, and the warm Caribbean waters on your skin all while enjoying a refreshing tropical drink.  Ahhh…welcome to America’s Paradise!
