Best Caribbean Island

What’s the best Caribbean island?...

My family and I love to travel so we get asked that question a lot. Our answer is always the same – St Croix!

You might be thinking, “Hey, wait a minute, I thought St Croix was one of the U.S. Virgin Islands?”

Well, you’re right! St Croix is part of the USVIs, but it’s also considered a Caribbean island because it’s located in the warm Caribbean Sea.

So what makes St Croix the best Caribbean island?
