  • We woke up one morning to experience the sunrise on the most eastern part of the U.S. Well, the clouds caused the sunrise to be hidden for a time. But the breeze, crazy blue crests of the water hittin...  more »
  • The drive from Christiansted to Point Udall is enjoyable, the view from the Monument is interesting and the 20 minute hike to the beach and swim is invigorating - well worth the effort.  more »
  • Point Udall, we were staying in the east end and had to check it out plus we were going on the hike to issacs bay. Nice monument, didn’t make it for the sunrise, because I’m on vacation.  more »

  • Eastern most point of the United States. There is access to jacks and Isaac's bay if you don't mind hiking. Otherwise a nice place to visit. There are no bars or restaurants. Just a monument and a fairly well paved road out there. Be the first to see sunrise on new years day at this eastern most point of th US.
  • Great view from the easternmost point in the US, fun place to take pictures if you're into that
  • Eastern point of the island. Magnificent sunrise. If you are into hiking, walk down to Jack and Issac beach.
  • Awesome place to watch the sunrise. There is a great place to hike to Isaac bay with a trail from the parking lot just before Point Udall. You do have to be cautious and plan ahead. Dont leave anything valuable in your car and leave it unlocked with the windows slightly down..unfortunately it is true there is a problem with car break ins where they break your car window. If you do this you will be just fine ! The hike is a must as the views and beaches are beautiful. Less chance of thieves if you go at sunrise too also its a lot cooler temperature wise too.
  • I'm not well traveled, but this has the most stunning views I have ever seen! We also hiked down to the water's edge and searched for sea glass, which we found lots of! Point Udall is a must see when visiting St Croix!
