Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge, St. Croix, USVI

The Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge has one of the longest and most pristine white sand beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands...the whole Caribbean for that matter! You can access the park from either Frederiksted or from the end of the 4-lane (Melvin H Evans Hwy). Just go straight ahead at the end of the Hwy and you come to the entrance to the park. It is a fairly long drive through the refuge to get to the main parking lot from this entrance. There is now a nice parking lot for your car which is just a short walk from the west beach. There are several other access points to the beach. Be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen as there is very little shade and no facilities. If you want to bring and umbrella or canopy, be sure to have 5 gallon buckets to fill with sand to use as anchors. It is against the law to drive anything down into the sand. If you do, you just might disrupt a turtle nest.

The refuge is only open to the public from 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays and is closed at all other times.  The refuge beach is a popular recreation site for visitors, but the refuge and beach are closed April 1 - September 1 during turtle nesting season in order to protect turtle nests and hatchlings.
