We visited the Sand Castle Resort in St Croix as a day destination during a recent cruise. We could have walked from the port but chose a $3 each way shared taxi. The small resort was inviting and friendly. We first enjoyed a casual outdoor lunch on a terrace overlooking a beautiful beach. The burgers and salads were excellent as was the service.
After lunch we took a long stroll on the clean, white sand beach to one of St. Croix's nature reserve beaches. The water was crystal clear and perfect for a cool-down dip along the way.
We returned to the resort and lounged by the pool (small but nice) on comfortable chaises with drinks in hand. It was also nice to use the poolside outdoor shower to rinse off the sand before returning to the ship.
This was a great day for us however it may not be the best for families as the pool area was small and it appeared that the majority of guests were couples.
