Map of St. Croix for Visitors in 2024

Every tourist needs a map of St Croix island.  So we made the best collection of St. Croix maps to help you plan and get the most out of your 2024 holiday at Villa Margarita. 

First let’s start with a map of Saint Croix in the Caribbean:

Below is a view of St Croix as seen from from 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! You’ll see much of the same views that Columbus did when he landed 500 years ago, which is pretty amazing. Read more about Columbus and St. Croix here (pdf)

Historical St Croix maps

In 2024 you may not realize that back in the old days, people really did have to spent a lot of time making maps in the pre-computer days.  It often took years 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.  Consequently, many people have this map professionally printed and framed for their office or home.  It may be the most famous St. Croix map available!
