Rainbow Beach, Frederiksted

4.1
#2 of 10 in Beaches in St. Croix
Rest or get active at Rainbow Beach, a small, laid-back stretch of sand near the Frederiksted cruise ship dock. Sunbathe on a rented lounge chair or on the soft white sand; enjoy the quiet atmosphere; and watch the cruisers roll into the nearby dock. You can swim in the calm, clear water, or venture into the rockier part of the beach for some snorkeling near the coral reef. If you get hungry or thirsty, grab a seat at the beach bar and try out their dishes and refreshing juices.
