Rhythms at Rainbow Beach

The Best Bar and Top Beach on the island is situated less than a 10 minute walk or short cab ride from the Cruise Dock in Frederiksted. One-of-a kind sunsets and beautiful views! We are the original home of the Lime In The Coconut. Relax on the beach, catch a live performance on our famous stage by the Islands best musicians, dance, eat great fare, jet ski, snorkel, visit our T-Shirt shop for authentic souvenirs, and even plan an ATV tour around the island. Just Limin & Stylin at Rhythms at Rainbow Beach!

Food was so good and people were so nice! They played trivia later for fun prizes! The mahi tacos, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, chocolate rum cake, and the frozen margaritas were incredible! To die for! Definitely get your hands on that spicy aioli sauce with your food after jet skiing with west end water sports! Watch sunset there with a drink and it really feels like paradise! They have local music on Sundays, definitely is a must-go!

St. George Village Botanical Garden

You can stroll amid the ruins of this 17-acre estate, a former 19th-century sugarcane plantation village, which contains varied ecosystems from semi-arid cactus to lush green rain forest.

Reviewed By Nicola C

Spent a lovely time visiting the garden today. It’s a really wonderful use of an old plantation and the old ruins provide a super backdrop. Had a guided tour with a most knowledgeable member of staff. Sadly as the visit was organised as part of a cruise stop off we couldn’t spend longer. Would recommend to any garden lover, it’s just fascinating how plants can recover from anything!

Frederiksted Pier

A great day or night dive, the pier is home to a thriving population of marine and coral life.

Reviewed By MSkinner - Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

They're still recovering from the hurricane, but you could tell that the pier and the area around it was quite nice. And I'm sure it's going to be again, shortly. Hopefully they continue to get the cruises in, and people continue to help financially support the locals.

Rainbow Beach

Reviewed By solarpowered1 - Nashua, New Hampshire

The Southern most section sustained significant erosion of the sand from the last hurricane so it is rocky when you enter the water. Once out 30' or so there are some sandy spots. The one advantage is its proximity to the cruise terminal so when you return from any excursion you can take a quick dip in the ocean. There are a few locals selling drinks at reasonable prices.

Estate Whim Museum

Estate Whim has long been known for its colonial-era Great House, slave quarters, and mill factory complex; but much more can be found on the museum’s twelve acres. Various museum exhibits include My Granny House, the Living Museum, and rotating exhibits in the North and South Exhibit Halls. Also located on the museum’s grounds is the Research Library & Archives, where visitors can conduct genealogical and historical research and purchase photographs from our unique photograph collection.

The day before we were leaving St. Croix, our family decided to visit the Estate Whim Museum.
This tour did not disappoint!
We learned so much about the oval architecture of the house and the waterless stone moat around the house used to gather the cool air. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the plantation, the island itself and the freeing of the slaves.
We also visited Grandma's house. We tasted the warm tea made from lemongrass and bay leaf, as well as the porridge.
The children had the opportunity to play the drums and other musical instruments that the tour guide was kind enough to show them. We were entertained by the stories of the plantation and the island. We saw displays of the horse jockeys from St.Croix and the races that took place off island.
The property is very well kept. The grounds are fun to walk around and for a fairly small museum there is plenty to see and do. We learned a lot about the history of island life on St. Croix.
