Get far-flung at Point Udall, the easternmost point of the United States of America. Admire the sundial monument erected in 2000, marking the location where American soil first sees the sunrise. The vantage point offers sweeping views around the island, as well as blue, reef-laden waters along the coast. From the monument, follow an unofficial trail of medium difficulty to the point.

  • This is a must see on the island. This is the first place the sun rises in the United States, so be prepared to come early! I did not, but still LOVED the view! Looks like there are paths you can walk...  more »
  • Great spot! Letters for sign missing which would be nice if they were replaced for better picture taking. Beautiful views! You can even see the Pelicans diving for food while there!  more »
  • Such a beautiful view. The drive up was breathtaking to say the least. A must see on your visit to St Croix.  more »

  • We visited Point Udall because it is the easternmost point on United States soil. The scenery is unbelievably beautiful here, which gave us another reason to stop. The Millennium Monument is also interesting -- basically a giant sundial -- but I'm taking one star off because of the graffiti which detracts from it. It's definitely worth coming here if you get the opportunity.
  • Amazing location! Great to see the stars at night as well as a ton beautiful scenery during the day time! Was warned by locals though to be careful from wild dogs at night and shady people try to break in cars as well as rob people... I saw none of that though
  • The view of East End Bay and Goat's Foot Hill are breathtaking. I love the drive to the point, and walking dizzily along the stone wall.
  • Beautiful views from the eastern most point of the territorial United States. The monument has seen better days but it's worth a stop if you are visiting STX.
  • This is one of those places you have to visit on Saint Croix simply to say that you've been there. That said, it is a fun place to go, with some nice hiking along the ridge and down to the beaches to the south. We had a great morning poking around here!
