The biggest U.S. Virgin Island, and the second-most visited, is a popular cruise port (Frederiksted) and jumping off destination to neighboring isles. Its bustling capital city, Christiansted, is filled with duty-free shopping opportunities and places to sample West Indian curries. And while the island’s colonial architecture has its charms, most head to St. Croix’s bright-white sand beaches.

Don't Miss

  • A visit to Buck Island National Park, a snorkeling and diving paradise just off the island’s northeastern coast.

  • Taking in a tennis tournament (or hitting balls) at the Bucaneer Hotel, known for its world-class courts and competitions.

  • St. George Village Botanical Garden, a lush flower-filled oasis on an old sugarcane plantation.
