Cruz Bay St John USVI

St John USVI Beaches: Cruz Bay

Beach Bar Cruz Bay Waterfront

 

Cruz Bay Beach, located right downtown, is a pretty sand beach fringed with coconut palms and seagrapes.

 

The beach is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the scenery and the activity of the harbor. It is not, however, particularly good for swimming or water sports because of heavy commercial and pleasure boat traffic.

Getting There
Get off the ferry and you’re there.
