The island's 28 miles long by 8 miles wide (at its widest point) and is very diverse with arid conditions and cactus growing on the east end and a rain forest on the west end.  It's surrounded by gorgeous beaches and wonderful tropical fauna.

Beer Drinking Pigs

St. Croix's famous beer drinking pigsThey've been featured on Inside Edition and many travel shows. You'll find them at the Montpellier Domino Club in the rain forest.

While feeding the pigs some (non-alcoholic) beer be sure to try some "Mama Wanna" yourself....(hint:  it's NOT non-alcoholic)

Cruzan RumCruzan Rum factory on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands

If you've ever been to one of the scuba diving trade shows where we exhibit, Captain Ed probably gave you a little bottle of Cruzan Rum.  It's made right here on St. Croix and you can tour the Cruzan Rum distillery and sample some of the many rums they make.

Point UdallPoint Udall on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands

The easternmost point of the U.S., has breathtaking views of the eastern end of the island.  It's a bit of a drive but it's very scenic.  If you're an early riser you can be the first in the U.S. to see the sunrise.

The millennium monument, built in 2000, makes a great backdrop for pictures.





The Rain ForestSt. Croix's rain forest

On St. Croix's western end is absolutely beautiful.  There are scenic trails that run along the top of the rain forest and Mahagony Road which runs through the middle of it (and where you'll find the Beer Drinking Pigs mentioned above).

Hiking, biking, horseback riding, and ATV tours are all great ways of seeing this wonderfully beautful forest.

(Personal note:  I just wish we had monkees and parrots but at least we have the beer drinking pigs).Creque Dam Farm in St. Croix's rain forest
