Nature Lovers and Eco Tourism

There are many things of interest to be found on St. Croix for lovers of nature. Tourists visiting the islands will find that it is one of the best locations in the Caribbean for those looking  for Eco-tourism.

St Croix Heritage Trail - This 72-mile driving tour connects our Caribbean island's historic sites and attractions and includes many significant natural areas.  Historic marker road signs with the trail's brown and white sugar mill symbol guide visitors along the route which runs between Frederiksted and Christiansted, primarily along Centerline Road, extending north to Hamm's Bay in the west and Point Udall in the East.

Rainforest around St. Croix Leap
A 15 acre natural wonder that is privately-owned but open to the public.

St. George Botanical Gardens
A 16-acre complex that has the ruins of a 19th century sugar cane village and rum factory. There are more than 1,500 varieties of plants here.


Try hiking around the east end beaches beyond Cramer Park Beach ( Caribbean Dream is just 15 from here) or the rainforest and hills surrounding Blue Mountains, which at 1,096 feet is the islands second highest point (Mt. Eagle is the highest, with 1165 feet).
