Crucian Gold wants you to “feel the love”…


We’ve tackled the hard task of visiting each and every St. Croix beach to let you know the best beaches to swim, snorkel, take a walk, bring the kids, or just relax with your toes in the sand.  The wonderful thing about St. Croix beaches is that they are all public. You are allowed access to all beaches, but be mindful of restrictions or fees. Certain beaches are protected and access restricted because of turtle habitats and nesting, while you may need to pay an amenities fee to use a hotel or resort beach.  Browse through our beach directory below to find the St. Croix beaches that best suit your beach desire. Visit one, or explore them all!
