Protestant Cay Beach, St. Croix

This sandy beach is located on Protestant Cay, a small island in the middle of Christiansted harbor. This is the only beach located in downtown Christiansted which makes it very convenient for those staying in a downtown hotel. The small island, which also has a hotel, restaurant and bar and a water sports facility, is accessible by a small ferry which departs from the boardwalk near Fort Christiansvaern. There is a small fee for the ferry service. The beach has nice fine white sand and has a sandy bottom. There are lounge chairs available and there are some palm trees for shade. The water is usually very calm...making it a great beach for families with children.
