Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge, St. Croix

4.7
#8 of 32 in Parks in St. Croix
Have some fun in the sun as you swim in the exceptionally clear water, or relax on pristine white sands, at Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge. The beach, which stretches for just over 3 km (2 mi), is surrounded by green vegetation. In the refuge, find the Aklis Archeological Site, which dates back to the year 400 CE. The beach turns into a sanctuary for leatherback sea turtles during the nesting season. Bring plenty of food, water, sunscreen, and even an umbrella; there are no nearby facilities and natural shade is minimal.

  • By far one of the most beautiful beaches. A must see while in STX. For calm blue waters drive straight all the way to the end to the last parking lot. If you want a little surf stop at the first parking lot ! Bring an umbrella as there's no shade and it gets quite hot.
  • Beautiful but was closed because of the hurricane. We walked on the beach south of Fredericsted instead.
  • Beautiful white sandy beach with caribbean blue sea
  • Really great place but not open yet due to hurricane. The road in is still washed out and not usable
  • Beautiful beach but hasn't opened since the hurricane
