Rainbow Beach, Frederiksted

(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Rainbow Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our St. Croix tourist route planner.
