Destination guide

Remote Estate Stony Ground

The remoteness of Saint Croix, which lies some 40 miles away from the rest of the archipelago, makes it the least visited of the Virgin Islands. It's twice the size of Saint Thomas and with fewer travelers it's not hard to find a secluded spot to kick back. It also feels decidedly more authentic. Outside the charming little Caribbean capital Christiansted, the island's scenery is stunningly beautiful. Expect steamy rainforests, lush green mountains and some of the Virgin Islands' most beautiful stretches of coastline, dotted by Estate Stony Ground vacation rentals.

Things to do

Rum is king at Estate Stony Ground

The Caribbean is rum country. This distilled sugarcane liquor dates back to the days when infamous pirates roamed the seas, plundering and raiding other boats. If you want to learn about the drink's history and have a sip, you can swing by the Captain Morgan Rum Distillery which has daily tours. If you've got an interest in art, you won't want to miss a visit to the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts in Frederiksted. Here, you can get a deeper understanding of Caribbean culture and view works from some of the island's most prominent artists.

Activities

Play the part of Columbus at Estate Stony Ground

It might be the least visited of the Virgin Islands, but this hasn't stopped it from having arguably the most to do away from its pretty beaches. If you hire kayaks, be sure not to miss padding around to the spot where Christopher Columbus landed in the late 15th century. If that's not your thing, when you stay in an Estate Stony Ground vacation rental, you can easily charter a fishing boat to reel in a blue marlin or mahi mahi. If you like to horseback ride, you can saddle up to gallop along the beaches and equestrian trails which wind up through the tropical island.

Weather

Winter sunshine awaits at Estate Stony Ground

If you manage to nab a waterside Estate Stony Ground vacation rental over the festive holidays, you can bask in temperatures that hover around the 80s with little to no precipitation. It's a busy time to visit, with families escaping the winter blues back home, so get in early if you want to swap out snow and turkey for sunshine and barbecued seafood. If you want to save a few bucks, you can try to score a vacation rental between April and June, when the rainy season has yet to start and the prices have dipped.

Natural features

Pods of dolphins at Estate Stony Ground

One of the biggest draws of Saint Croix is the astonishingly good scuba diving. If you've got your open-water PADI certificate, you can delve down to explore this real-life aquarium of coral and more than 500 species of exotic marine creatures. It doesn't stop back on dry land. Look out over the sea when the sun is melting behind the horizon and it's not uncommon to spot pods of dolphins leaping from the water. If you score an Estate Stony Ground vacation rental at the right time, you could even get up close to humpback whales, which use the warm Caribbean waters to raise their young.
