Flights to St. Croix, VI (STX)
As you set foot on the island of St. Croix you are struck by that unique sound. It's called Quelbe—the vocal and instrumental style of the Virgin Islands' folk music which traces its ancestry to Africa and Europe. It helps you start getting into the rhythm of St. Croix as you begin to let your hair down and begin to relax.
As you drive around St. Croix, especially through Christiansted and Frederiksted you will experience the narrow roads and closely spaced historic buildings showcasing historic Danish architecture. You can also visit one of the many Danish stone sugar mills that dot the island, or Whim Great House, a restored plantation. Due to her rich and varied history under the rule of no fewer than seven flags (including Dutch, English, French, Spanish, Knights of Malta, Danish and American), the true nature of St. Croix is one of quiet cultural and relaxed encounters.
As the largest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix offers endless opportunities for hiking, ecotourism and other natural pursuits. You can also choose from horseback riding, playing golf on one of the island's three scenic golf courses and scuba diving. St. Croix has great diversity of dives for all skill levels and is one of only a few places in the Caribbean where you can dive a reef, wreck, pier and a wall, in a single destination. Shopping is also a dream because you are allowed up to $1600 duty free shopping, the highest in the Caribbean.
