Carambola Beach Resort, St Croix
With pretty much this stretch of St Croix’s coastline to itself – aside from the nearby Carambola Golf Club – the Carambola Beach Resort is for those who want a true resort base. You should note, that other restaurants are quite a drive away. Built on a sugar plantation, there’s a huge palm-fringed pool, and a number of rooms fronting the beach. Rooms are spacious, with luxury touches such as dark wood shutters. If you’re craving a little adventure, head to the nearby Carambola Tide Pools where waves crash over the black volcanic rocks of the naturally formed basins at high tide.
