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.

There’s wonderful snorkeling not far from the dock without taking an excursion. I saw many fish including a scorpionfish!! The water is warm & very calm.
Our first visit to this island. We did not do a shore tour but decided to check out the town near the pier. We were greeted but the high school marching band. The band came down to the end of the pier and the back to the park in the town area. This port is not full of the “standard” commercial trappings found in the Caribbean. It was a lovely visit

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.

The port is rough. Still recovering from storm damage. Like most in the carribean. However the people are great. Bypass the beach near the port and get a taxi to rainbow beach if you arnt doing an excursion. 3$ per person, 1 way. Beach is free. There is a bar resturant there that you can get chairs, umbrellas, and anything else. Great time. Dont let the port get you down. The island is beautiful and has a lot to offer! One of the best waters! Clear and gorgeous. Might want water socks for the large rocks
We spent half a day at the Sand Castle Resort, a short cab ride from the pier. Day passes were $10.00 each and we were given the use of the resort change room, towels and use of the pool and beach. Food and drinks were at our own expense. The people who own the resort could not have been more friendly and helpful.
