Rhythms at Rainbow Beach

If you have been on St. Croix for even a few days you have probably heard the term ‘Sunday Funday’.  What is Sunday Funday?  Well, it’s pretty self explanatory…it’s the weekly celebration of Sunday, the island’s day of rest and relaxation.  While Sunday Funday can represent something as simple as heading to your favorite beach with a cooler and a good book, it is more often used to refer to getting together with friends to hit the beach near one of St. Croix’s favorite beach bars or restaurants for cocktails, food, live music, group activities and fun in the sun!

Probably the most popular Sunday Funday spot on St. Croix is Frederiksted’s Rhythms at Rainbow Beach.  Offering great live music every Sunday, as well as delicious food and bucket sized Cruzan Rum cocktails, this Rainbow Beach hotspot is hopping!  As if that wasn’t enough to entice you, Rhythms is also home to West End Water Sports where you can rent jet skis, paddle boards, snorkel gear and more.  Join in the weekly volleyball game at Rainbow Beach, float with friends in the Caribbean, or just kick back in the sand and enjoy the live music.  On days a cruise ship is in port, Rhythms also offers ‘The Island’s Only Cruise Ship Party’ making it the most happening place on St. Croix.  

eat @ cane bay brunchOn the North Shore, enjoy the island sounds of live reggae music at Eat @ Cane Bay.  Pop into the restaurant for a delicious Reggae Brunch, or claim your spot across the street on Cane Bay Beach to listen to the live reggae from 3pm until sunset as you lounge on the beach.  Bring your own cooler, or better yet, head over to the convenient walk-up bar at Eat @ Cane Bay which serves ice cold beer and all your favorite island cocktails.  If you feel like doing something active, start up a volleyball game or go for a snorkel.  Cane Bay Dive Shop is open on Sunday’s, so you can also rent gear and dive the famous Cane Bay Wall.  Cane Bay Beach is a great Sunday Funday spot for families and is popular for barbeques and family parties! 

Tamarind Reef BeachAnother popular Sunday Funday spot is Deep End Bar & Grill at Tamarind Reef Resort.  Located on St. Croix’s East End, Deep End Bar & Grill hosts an official ‘Second Sunday Funday’ beach party the second Sunday of each month featuring live music from 2pm-5pm.  Enjoy great signature cocktails, and a wide range of food options from the bar and grill. The beach at Tamarind Reef has a great volleyball court, good snorkeling, and a water sports rental stand for those looking to do more than just relax.  But, if you DO just want to relax, you and your friends can rent a cabana for shade, as well as lounge chairs.  

These are just a few of the popular local Sunday Funday spots on St. Croix.  Whether you prefer to soak up the sun on a secluded beach, or enjoy the live music and crowds the local hotspots have to offer, St. Croix has something for everyone.  The question is, where will you spend this Sunday Funday?– Jennie Ogden, Editor
