We enjoyed the island. Not a lot to do off the port, excursions are expensive for this island. We took a taxi to the sandcastle resort. $6 round trip and $10 admission includes all amenity such as pool showers and beach chairs. Very quiet and everyone was really nice. Highly recommended this excursion for the price!
Sand Castle resort had great beach and for $25 you get 2 chairs, umbrella and 2 rum punch drinks. Totally worth it, has all the amenities you need. Great view of our cruise ship too.

Loved this island. Way less commercial than most others. We did not do an excursion but caught a taxi($3 per person each way) to Sandcastle on the Beach. Boutique type hotel right on the water. For a day pass was $10 per person. What a beautiful spot. They have the best staff and we spoke briefly with the owners. They have a little cafe there as well.. I would recommend this place for a visit or even a longer holiday. Hopefully we will make it back there again.

This island is still suffering greatly from the devastating effects of the hurricanes last year. The town of Frederiksted is small and after a walk around we took a shared taxi (with other passengers from the cruise) to Christiensted. This was a little prettier and we were able to have a lovely lunch at a restaurant on the boardwalk, watching passers by, boats and fish in the water alongside. After lunch we browsed and shopped for souvenirs before getting the shared taxi back to the ship. I hope this place will recover soon from the damage sustained and hope our visit (the ship's passengers) helps with that.

LOVED, LOVED this island!!! We booked our own excursion with Gecko ATV (found via TripAdvisor). We rode ATV in the forest, then ended up at Rainbow Beach, where we traded 4 wheels for a jet ski! We had the best fish tacos and rum punch at Rhythms at Rainbow Beach.
