The destination

Rich in cultural diversity, St. Croix has a past filled with a fascinating history. Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, the Knights of Malta, Denmark and the United States all played a role in its past and brought their influence to the native Arawak and Carib peoples. Experience the unique culture of St. Croix through its arts, crafts, music and more during a variety of festivals and cultural events throughout the year.

The diving

Beneath the turquoise waters the island is almost completely surrounded by a barrier reef teeming with coral, sponges, schools of tropical fish, sea turtles, and more. The most well-known part of this spectacular coral reef runs along the north shore of St. Croix and is known simply as The Wall. Rated as one of the top dive sites in the entire Caribbean, The Wall has something for every level of diver. About 100 yards from shore is the famous ‘seahorse’ – a carousel horse that stands upright in the sand.

The resort

Opened in 2007, Arawak Bay is a 14-room Bed and Breakfast Inn that boasts all the amenities of a modern hotel. Breathtaking views of Salt River Bay and the Caribbean from each room, glimpses of St. Thomas and Tortola, island breakfasts with house specialties and relaxation by the pool and bar, affirm that you are in America’s paradise even as you stay connected via free WiFi and satellite TV. Close to the airport, downtown Christiansted, area restaurants, popular beaches and to a variety of water sports activities.
