Chenay Bay Beach
This is a charming beach with white sand and a relaxing atmosphere. There is a popular beachside bar and restaurant here which is perfect for lunch with friends or casual business meetings, as well as for drinks while enjoying the tranquility of the beach.
Chenay Bay Beach St Croix is located on the east end of the island and is home to the Chenay Bay Beach Resort. It’s a pretty good beach for snorkeling and renting kayaks, stand up paddle boarding and other water sports and activities. It has a grassy bottom close to shore; this makes a nice environment for starfish, conch and sea turtles but may not please everyone looking for sandy-bottom only beach.
You’ll find some good snorkeling on the right side of the bay. On the beach, you’ll find plenty of shade. Family-wise, this is a nice beach for young children because the water is shallow and calm. There is also a children’s playset to keep the little ones entertained.
There is a bar and restaurant located alongside the beach. Beach lounge chairs are available for resort guests or anyone who purchases food or beverages at the resort’s beachside restaurant and bar. There is plenty of parking and there are public restroom facilities. Water sports gear rentals are also available.
Head east out of Christiansted along East End Road (Rt. 82). Look for the sign for Chenay Bay Beach Resort. Turn left here and take that road to the parking lot at the resort. You can park your car there and then it’s about a 150 yard walk straight through the resort property to get to the beach.
So that’s the scoop on Chenay Bay Beach St Croix!
