Another US Virgin Island: St. Croix

A short flight or ferry ride away is St. Croix is the largest of the United States Virgin Islands – 28 miles long and seven miles at its widest point. The island lies entirely in the Caribbean Sea, with all the beauty and warmth of a tropical destination. However, it is this island’s distinct history and cultural heritage that set it apart from other Caribbean islands. St. Croix is rich in diverse history that remains alive in the architecture, national parks, historic landmarks, botanical attractions, food, music and traditions that are an integral part of island life.

One of the major features that separate St. Croix from the rest of the Virgins is the Divi Carina Bay Casino. Located on a quiet expanse of beach this property offers Caribbean eloquence along with the excitement of Vegas style gaming.

Remember that you do not need a passport to visit the Virgins. Just an official government issued photo identification card and official birth certificate are the required travel documents.

Do it all or do nothing at all! These options plus much much more abound in the United States Virgin Islands.
