Come have some fun in the sun!
At 84 square miles, St. Croix is the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, but its size has little relation to its popularity among tourists. Forty miles removed from bustling St. Thomas and artsy St. John, St Croix is often overlooked by North American travelers, save for scuba divers who know of this destination's bounty. U.S. citizens do not need a passport, but proof of citizenship, such as a certified birth certificate, US drivers license or voter's registration, is required. All other nationalities must show passport/visa upon arrival and departure.

St. Croix is on its way to becoming "The Next Great Place"...
and Dave Herndon, Editor, Caribbean Travel & Life Magazine, agrees!
St. Croix was the featured Caribbean destination in the November 2007 issue of Caribbean Travel & Life Magazine. Our lovely Buck Island National Park was on the cover and an impressive eight-page spread regaled the reader with all of the wonderful things this "sleepy" island has to offer.
In his editorial, TRAVELLOG, Dave Herndon wrote, "Last year, our cuisine correspondent Rich Rubin alerted us that something was cooking on St. Croix. He wrote about a 'sense shared by many Crucians that it's about to become one of the next hip Caribbean destinations'. When we sent veteran travel journalist Laura Kelly to investigate further (page 80), she, too, came back with a major crush on an island that's escaped many travelers' notice. 'It's got the same kind of energy South Beach had when I moved there in 1986', she says. 'It's a place that's been down on its luck but feels like it's ready to take off'. Resort developers seem to agree, she reports, and are eager to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars into this U.S. Virgin Island."
Come visit us on St. Croix and you too will agree that this "sleepy" Virgin is about to wake up out if its slumber!
