My dream job, would be travelling around the world for travel sites describing the atmosphere and recommending people do’s and don’t’s. So if you here about that job, let me know.
Until then, we just got back from stunningly beautiful St. Croix Island, a part of the US Virgin Islands, we were supposed to visit all 3 Island, but decided to stay put in St. Croix.This place is breathtaking. We went with Norwegian direct from Copenhagen.
It’s expensive at the Islands even coming from Denmark where everything is expensive, but with that said, you can get around all the imported stuff and do your shopping at the farmers markets and meat markets, and grill yourself a Tuna or grassfed beef. They are focusing more and more on their local produce, which is just awesome. The local transport is $1,50 and it takes you back and forth from Christiansted to Frederiksted.
We started out with 6 days in Frederiksted at the Inn on Strand st. All accommodations are quite pricy even the Airbnb rentals, but this spot was cheap, and we loved it. We had early bird breakfast at our terrasse every morning. Frederiksted is quite worn down but in a charming way, it’s very quiet, but as the locals say: West is Best, the Beaches in the West part of the Island are BEAUTIFUL, we literally snorkelled with sea turtles right of the beach. We ate alot at Pollys for late 2nd breakfast and we had local stews with rice and breadfruit at Rose’s and Johnny cakes at Mercedes Bar and restaurant. We didn’t rent a car the first week, we just relaxed in Frederiksted and went to Frederiksted beach and Rainbow beach for a Sunday Funday (google it) It was packed ALL day.
The remaining 8 days we had rented this amazing crib at Carambola Golf course and we rented a tiny Yaris and we spent 2 days driving around the entire Island, we went to the rainforrest and drove up to Point Udall and hiked to Isaacs Bay, absolutely worth the drive. My personal favourite was Cramers bay, take the East 82 to Point Udall and stop at Cramers park beach, WOW, just WOW. We also took a day of sailing where we visited the Buck Island Koral reef for snorkelling, I have travelled and snorkelled ALOT, but the korals here were beautiful not that much marine life thou’ but beautiful BIG korals.
Staying at the Carambola Gold course, had us visiting the Carambola beach, which is in front of the Renaissance resort, but it is a public beach and it is stunning, it’s surrounded by lush mountains and the water is magical. In that area we also went to Cane Bay beach, which is said to be one of the best, but I wasn’t at all impressed, BUT drive a little further and you can have the best ever fish tacos at Rowdy Joes, and then go to Off the Wall to see the Sunset while having a Rum Punch, even more WOW. Well I could keep going, but I’ll let the first batch of pictures speak for themselves …
13 hours flight, no problem, when you have on board TV – THANK GOD
