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.

The beach is white sandy and beautiful!! The small mountain next to it is so beautiful and the lush vegetation is amazing. The dive is beautiful with much fish and coral to see!!

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

One side has a sandy beach from which you can play in the surf. Waves can be strong at times. Strong swimmers can snorkel. Opposite end of bay has tidal pools to explore. Wear water shoes. Rocks are sharp.
