Unique in the Caribbean and the largest of the three principal islands comprising the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix prides itself on a rich heritage with elements of ancient Indian civilizations coupled with those of nations represented by the seven flags that have flown over this marvelous island following its European discovery by Columbus in 1493. St. Croix's diversity is partly due to its size - 28 miles long and 7 miles wide. This tropical island is three times the size of nearby St. Thomas, and its terrain is uniquely diverse. Despite its small size, you'll find so much to see and do here. A lush rain forest in the western mountains and undulating hills in the interior are a marked contrast to the spiny desert vegetation and dry, rocky red cliffs found on the eastern end. Year-round temperatures average 80 degrees during the day and 70 degrees at night; constant trade winds keep the island cool and pleasant. An island of beauty and bounty, it offers far more than its delightful climate, fine beaches and crystal-clear seas. You will be welcomed by friendly people who speak English, and the U.S. dollar is the currency.
