Isaac Bay, St. Croix

4.9
#3 of 12 in Nature in St. Croix
Isaac Bay provides a secluded beach with good conditions for swimming and a picturesque barrier reef for snorkelling. Plenty of colorful and exotic fish populate the area close to shore. Be aware that the only way of reaching the area is with an off-road vehicle, and then an uphill 15-20 minute trek, but the reward is the serenity of a remote beach with hardly any human life in the immediate vicinity. Be sure not to leave any valuables in your car before your trek to the beach. Take the guesswork out of planning a St. Croix vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • The coolest trail facing Africa.
  • Absolutely a gorgeous beach and hike. Made it down here from Point Udall with a two and one year old in tow. Pack in and out type of place. My only recommendation is to bring an umbrella or small tent for shade. We made our own make shift shelter from random things we found on the beach. The hike back up was a bit more challenging in the heat of the day so plan wisely and dont wear yourself out from swimming. Great place!
  • Beautiful beach and pretty much all to yourselves
  • Best beach in the island, great snorkeling, peaceful, beautiful, serene, picturesque, what else can you say
  • Beautiful secluded beach accessible only by a hike down from a parking spot close to Point Udall.
