St.Croix Virgin Islands - Online Travel Guide

Christiansted proudly sits on the north shore of St. Croix as the largest city on the island with a current population of about 3000. Historically, Christiansted, first settled in 1734, even served as the regional capital of all of the Dutch West Indies prior to the islands sale to the United States in 1917. Fort Christiansted and the Dutch architecture with it’s yellow coloring still serve as a reminder of those days. Today those who travel to St. Croix visit Christiansted not only for its history, but also for it’s shopping, restaurants and base for many water based activities such as sailing, fishing and scuba diving. Tourists may discover many local artists and craftsman selling their goods as well as items made in other spots around the world. The whole atmosphere of Christiansted moves one to a state of relaxation. The pace remains slow and devoid of the super high end shops and hustle of Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas or Nassau in the Bahamas. A new boardwalk allows travelers to walk along the harbor all the way from Fort Christiansted to the Seaborne Seaplane terminal. Many restaurants line the boardwalk offering lovely views along with their fine cuisine.
