Cane Bay Beach
Cane Bay Beach is very popular for locals and visitors alike. Families also like it because it is a one-stop beach that has everything. There are a number of bars and restaurants either right on or next to the beach. There is great swimming and snorkeling, and it is one of the best places for St Croix scuba diving right from the beach! You can swim out and take a look at Sea Biscuit, the underwater horse that looks like it came right off a ferry-go-round. And for divers, you can dive the famous “Cane Bay Wall” about 300 yards offshore, where the depth drops rapidly to 13,000 feet!!
It makes for an easy and enjoyable beach day. Lots to do, from playing volleyball, swimming, or taking it easy by renting beach chairs and diving into a good book. And it’s nice for kids with very gentle waves and the water is only waist-deep 30 yards from shore.
Cane Bay Beach St Croix can get busy on the weekends. Restaurants often have special offers and live entertainment. There are also usually families having birthday parties or BBQing on the beach. The beach is very popular on Sundays and the Spratnet Beach Bar has pig roasts and local bands for a real island feel & experience. There is also an annual “Mardi Croix parade” and celebration which takes place here, a favorite St. Croix tradition which is similar to Mardi Gras. Enjoy!

A casual open air beach bar that serves drinks, food and ice cream. This is a very nice bar and grill that is located right off of Cane Bay Beach and run by a hardworking and friendly family.
It overlooks the water. When you envision a beach bar, you come up with something like this. It is a small tike style beach bar that has a limited menu that includes wraps, burgers, sandwiches and appetizers. They also also some of the popular tropical drinks. The owner, Calvin, was sitting at the bar while I was there. He was the friendliest person that you would ever meet.
You can either sit at the bar or you can get your food/drink and sit at one of the colorful picnic tables on the beach, next to the bar. They have their own restroom that they can give you the key to and have a band come in on weekends to jam out. They host Sunday Reggae Brunch there and other special events. View menu
