The HuffingtonPost Travel writer, Dwight Brown, recently reviewed the three Virgin Islands. Read his full post to find out about St Thomas and St John. As he says, they are 3 islands that offer 3 unique visitor experiences. Here is his glowing report on St Croix.

“When Columbus’ crew disembarked at Salt River Bay, they dodged Carib arrows. These days, visitors are more welcomed on this friendly isle that is less hilly than its sisters and possesses a San Francisco-like bohemian charm, especially during annual events like the St. Croix Food & Wine Experience or Ironman 70.3 Triathlon.

“Drive from Frederiksted, through the rainforest and up to North Shore Road, where the view of the sea is as dramatic as that along California’s Pacific Coast Highway. Cruise along South Shore Road on the southern end of the island, pass Divi Carina Beach Resort and Casino (its slot machines inhale quarters) and you’ll reach Point Udall, the easternmost part of the U.S. At Buck Island (an underwater museum) you snorkel from exhibit to exhibit. Savant restaurant dishes out tasty pan-fried Wahoo with creamy truffle cauliflower risotto in a tomato confit sauce; dine here and you’ll meet the local gentry. Hang out at Club Comanche Hotel in Christiansted, where DJs spin till the wee hours, and you’ll see how Cruzans get their groove on.

“Golfers flock to The Buccaneer, just east of Christiansted. An 18-hole course surrounds this 138-room, 63-year-old Grand Dame hotel that sits regally on 340 acres with dramatic panoramas of the Caribbean Sea. Accommodations range from rooms with antique furniture in the main, 17th century building, to the newest, seaside Doubloons Villas, with their expansive rooms and marbled floors. Lauren Bacall and Michael Jackson have sought quiet refuge at The Buccaneer.”
