Map of St. Croix for Visitors

Every tourist needs a map of St Croix island.  So we compiled one of the best collection of St. Croix maps available to help you plan and get the most out of your holiday at Villa Margarita.  Click on any map to see the full size.

First let’s start with a US Virgin Islands map showing St 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!

Next comes a 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 map if you get lost 🙂

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

Of course, any self-respecting collection needs a map of St Croix beaches. Actually there are so many beaches on the island that our guests ask for this map to guide them to the best beaches.  Conveniently, below you’ll find the location of great beaches on the island:

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  🙂

Old St Croix maps

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!

Here is another old St Croix map, this one by Kussner and strangely enough also from 1767….must have been a popular for making maps!  You can get the full-sized map here.
