People often ask “Where is St. Croix located on a map?”  So let’s start with the basic St Croix map location, located right smack dab in the middle of the Caribbean and at the perfect latitude!

Below is a view from St Croix Google Maps.  From this map of Saint Croix island you can see the hilly terrain, lush green areas, and plenty of locations where beach meets beautiful turquoise water.  One thing we absolutely love about our island is that has not been over-built like so many islands have.

There’s nothing like looking out our villa windows and seeing lush, green, undeveloped hills instead of plastered with chock-a-block concrete slabs of apartments and condos.  In that sense, St. Croix is truly a undiscovered gem and rarity! St Croix map

Next comes our St Croix road map (courtesy of our friends over at GoToStCroix).  You absolutely should pick up one of these at the airport when you arrive; they are essential to getting around the island.  Bookmark this page: you may need this St Croix map if you get lost :) where is st croix located?

St Croix island is divided in to various districts called quarters. Learning these quarters is useful especially in particular when dealing in St Croix real estate. Below is a Saint Croix map showing the various names of these districts:

Of course, any self-respecting collection needs a map of St Croix beaches. There are so many beaches on the island that our guests ask for this map to guide them to the best beaches.  Below you’ll find the location of great beaches on the island: map of st croix beaches us virgin islands

And for all you scuba divers out there, here is a map of St Croix scuba dive sites. As you can see, many of the best dive sites are right off the shore from Villa Margarita or within a 10-15 minute boat ride.  For regular Villa Margarita guests, we offer storage facilities for all your scuba gear, so you can travel light and not get hammered with excess baggage charges by the airlines  :) map of st croix scuba dive sites snorkeling us virgin islands

Map of Buck Island

Buck Island should be on every St. Croix visitor’s bucket list.  It’s a protected natural park sanctuary, offering one of the purest natural beach experiences you will find anywhere.  Access the full map of Buck Island in St Croix , provided by the National Park Services website.  There is also an amazing underwater trail for snorkeling, plus Turtle Beach on Buck Island is one of the most pristine beaches you’ll find anywhere.

Boat access is restricted and a number of licensed companies provide day trips to and from the island.  It’s a beautiful 15-20 minute ride over to the island.

Old St Croix maps

Back in the old days, people really did have to ask “Where is St. Croix?” to actually find it.  Cartographers spent a lot of time in the pre-computer days assembling these fabulous historical maps.  One of the most famous old maps of St Croix is the one made in 1767 by Danish cartographer I.M. Beck, here below, showing the various land parcels as owned back then.  It’s so fascinating that here is the link to the full 15 megabyte file.  Many people have this map professionally printed and framed for their office or home.
