St. Croix or St. Thomas

Hi Everyone!

So my fiance and I have narrowed our honeymoon down to either St. Croix or St. Thomas ( we plan on doing a day trip to St. John, we love the idea of St. John being more intimate with beautiful beaches, but with it being the smallest of islands we may get bored, so we figured maybe a day trip or two over would be enough) We are leaning towards St. Croix due to it seeming like a bit less touristy but still a ton to do and tons of history!. What makes us a bit hesitant about St. Thomas is that it is a huge cruise port... means more congestion/ more people..... although it may have more things to do bc of being a major cruise port. We want to explore buck island and from what we understand it's just a short ferry ride from St.Croix.

Can someone reassure me that St. Croix may be a better option between the two islands? Or is St. Thomas?

We are super excited! Air BnB has some unreal deals on private condos/beach house rentals for St. Croix and St. Thomas.

Any advice is appreciated!


Thank you in advance! Smiley smile

    Both islands have a lot to offer! It really just depends on what you are looking for. Saint Croix is definitely less “tourist-y”. Because of that though, it lacks the amount of entertainment options that Saint Thomas has. You can find more restaurants offering authentic cuisine in Saint Croix, as well as a lot more historical types of activities. Saint Thomas caters more toward bars, shopping and nightlife.

    Hi Ava!


    I appreciate your input Smiley smile My FH and I are most definitely not about the bar scene. We are more laid back and into visiting museums/historicalSites / hiking/site seeing when we are vacationing. I feel like St. Croix is more our style when it comes to things to do on vacay.
    Thank you again!

    I’ve never been to St Croix but travel annually to STJ. Just wanted to mention that STJ is not really a particularly feasible day trip from St Croix. Shouldnt rule St Croix out if you’re loving it, but just bring it up as ive met many people who are surprised to discover how far St Croix is from the other USVIs! It’s a ferry or sea plane between STX&STT then taxi to ferry to STJ, so would end up being a long travel day with little time to explore ….so if visiting St John is a big priority, St Thomas is a better base for that! But certainly lots of people visit st Croix without seeing St John and have a wonderful time Smiley winking , can always see St John on another trip!

    Thank you for your input! The more research my fiance and I are doing the more in love we are becoming with St. John! It seems like an amazing honeymoon site for adventurers, which we are! We are thinking a day trip to St. Thomas would be enough and keep St.John our home base Smiley smile

    Thanks Again!
