Sandcastle resorts st Croix. Perfect.

Recommended Posts

We recently sailed to st Croix and found this wonderful place. Sandcastle resort. Facing land from the ship it’s to the right. $12 for 2 gets you a round trip ride to the front door. Greeted by the owner and a rum punch. For $10 each you get a chair and umbrella. Use of pool and spotless bathrooms. Snorkeling from shore to left facing ocean decent. A great way to spend the day. Buckets of beer. Restaurant on site.

A nice quiet beach day. Walkable beach. Only an occasional pedlar of goods. 

We will return. 

The owners could not have been nicer. This is a great way for them to survive and wonderful for cruise passengers to enjoy a nice resort without breaking the bank.

Good to hear they are still accepting cruise guests; I heard they were under construction, and wasn't sure if we would be able to visit them in April.  Thanks for the information!

Sorry I don’t. We just showed up early. We were the only ship in port. Maybe an Internet search would help you.

We are interested in the Sand Castle as well.  I got the impression from someone else that  the chair/umbrella was $25 per person.  Is the charge $20 or  $25 for 2 chairs and an umbrella?  Can you use the beach if you don't want a chair and umbrella but an hour stop to take a dip?

All beaches on St. Croix are public so technically you can access any beach without paying anything. The day pass at Sandcastle (and any other place on STX that offers the same thing) is to give you access to their amenities so that you enjoy your day more. In the case of Sandcastle you are paying for access to a beautiful pool and deck, outdoor shower, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, a lovely restaurant and bar, and a couple of included drinks.

If that doesn't sound like it's worth $25 to you I welcome you to make your own choices.

We're not big on keeping up with communication here (as evidenced by my own occasional disappearances lol). Honestly, you may not hear back at all, you can always just pay at the counter when you get there. No biggie either way.

Cheers.
