What’s the crown jewel in most Caribbean fantasy vacations? It’s watching a beautiful sunset, and St. Croix is replete with picturesque places to do just that. So why limit yourself to just what’s around your hotel? Hop in your hotel car rental and prepare to be dazzled. Centerline, St. Croix’s premier independent car rental agency, is here to help, so check out four of our favorite ways to watch the sun go down:
- Accompanied by Music: Every third Friday around 5:30 p.m., you’ll see a crowd begin to gather at Frederiksted Beach. You’ll see parents and their young children, teenagers, elderly couples and maybe even a dog. But what’s really incredible is what you’ll hear – two full hours of world-class live jazz to go along with your spectacular sunset.
- With a Cowboy: You probably don’t think of cowboys when you think of St. Croix, but we’ve got our own Lone Ranger in Steven O’Dea. His company, Equus Rides, offers breathtaking sunset horseback rides along the beach at Cane Bay.
- On the Road: The perfect way to experience the full breadth of St. Croix’s beauty is by car, so be sure to take a cruise along the island in your jeep. St. Croix offers uniquely beautiful places to view the sunset, from the secluded west end beach, the monks’ baths or from high atop historic ruins of a Sugarmill plantation from the 18th century.
- On a Boat: Planning a Buck Island snorkeling trip? Well, you’re probably going to want to make a whole day out of it. There are several companies that offer sunset cruises around the national park. And, for the pirate in you, most offer complementary rum punch.
Whether you experience them on a beach, in a boat, with a cowboy or from your Caribbean vacation car rental, St. Croix sunsets are truly incredible. Got an amazing sunset photo from your St. Croix trip? We’d love to see it in the comment section below.
