You can get to this beach by going through the gate of the Carambola Beach Resort, which is beyond spectacular. Driving down to get to his beach, we were like WOW. Couldn't believe how gorgeous the setting was. It looked like it was right in the middle of a rain forest, very lush and green. We purchased drinks at the... More

We loved our stay! The best beach on the island!! They do have great snorkeling and scuba diving, with equipment rentals available. It is located in the Rain Forest portion of the island and is very secluded.

Sweet Bottom Dive Providers is located at Davis Bay. It's a fabulous dive provider. Shore diving is available at Davis Bay with Sweet Bottom. "The Renaissance [Marriott] St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa" is located there. Beautiful grounds and pool.

Davis Bay, which is the beach of the Renaissance Carambola resort, is accessed by going through the resort (the guards are not picky about letting you drive into the hotel lot) or by a path right before the resort gates. Great beach and good snorkeling/diving.

Discovered this gorgeous beach at the end of our stay and managed to go twice. This is what a Caribbean beach is all about! Since it was low season, we were able to use the chairs that are normally reserved for guests at the Carambola free of charge.

On our third try, we succeeded in having water tame enough to snorkel. Saw a stingray and other fish. Signs say to enter at the west end of the beach to avoid sea urchins in the coral.

Some years ago we discovered Davis Bay. We have become frequent visitors. West end north shore of St Croix is world class. I'm an open water distance swim/snorkel enthusiast. I go out for hours at a time. Mostly alone because dive shops don't cater to old men that like to push the edge. North shore has a strong westerly current... More
