Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dive Experience and Rainbow Beach. Visiting Buck Island Cove and Cruzan Cowgirls will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, look for gifts at Adorn, get engrossed in the history at Fort Frederik, and hike along Carambola Tide Pools.

To find photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our St. Croix day trip site.

New York City, USA to St. Croix is an approximately 9-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Atlantic Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from New York City in August; daily highs in St. Croix reach 90°F and lows reach 78°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to travel to Charlotte Amalie.

One of the most visited cruise ship destinations in the Caribbean, the town of Charlotte Amalie is known around the world for its duty-free jewelry, perfume, and liquor shops.
Step out of the city life by going to Magens Bay and Morningstar Beach. Visit Hull Bay and Brewer's Bay for some beach relaxation. There's lots more to do: see what you can catch with Simplicity Charters, kick back and relax at Bluebeard's Beach, look for gifts at Ballerina Jewelers, and stroll through Coki Point Beach.
