Paradise Beach St. Croix (a.k.a Fort Frederik Beach) is conveniently located in Frederiksted right next to the Frederiksted Pier. This makes it one of the best St. Croix beaches near the cruise port for ship passengers day-tripping in St. Croix. It’s a small beach, a bit rocky and with seaweeds. It’s usually very calm with not many waves, so it’s good for lounging and swimming but don’t expect surfing etc.
It’s possible to rent loungers and umbrellas there for around $15/person but no towels are provided, so bring your own. There are a few food & drink shacks at St. Croix Paradise Beach providing beers for $8 & cocktails for around $15. It’s a super convenient beach for cruise ship passengers who just want some sun and sand without having to taxi around the island.
Providers of water sports equipment at Paradise Beach like paddle boards etc. come and go unfortunately so it’s a bit of a crap shoot. Many cruise ship passengers either hike or taxi up 1.5 miles to Rainbow Beach, which has a greater selection of equipment, activities and a great beach restaurant & bar called Rythms at Rainbow beach. Both beaches can get crowded when cruise ships are in port.
It’s also possible to have water sports equipment delivered for the day to Paradise Beach through a company called Sea Sports St. Croix.
Paradise Beach is also right next to Fort Frederik, so a best way to spend a day on St. Croix is to tour the fort and learn its amazing history (pdf doc), walk around the charming town on Fredericksted, and then go swim and chill out at either Paradise Beach or Rainbow Beach.
