St. Croix stands out with its well-preserved historic buildings — notably Fort Christiansvaern, a Danish fortress dating from 1749 — two distinctive cities (Christiansted and Frederiksted), excellent culinary scene, and natural wonders that include Buck Island National Monument for desert-island swimming and snorkeling and a lush interior rainforest filled with old plantation ruins.
And now you can plan your St. Croix visit now with a stay at one of the hotels that have reopened with new COVID-19 protocols in place.
Options range from the intimacy of the Sugar Apple Bed & Breakfast in downtown Christiansted to the resort accommodations at the famous Buccaneer.
