Hire a Private Chef for a Romantic Night In – Let your partner know that you’ve thought of everything by surprising them with a romantic dinner for two prepared by a private chef. St Croix is known as one of the top culinary destinations in the Caribbean and we have the chefs to prove it. After you’ve booked your romantic vacation villa, schedule a private chef like Crucian born, former USVI Culinary Ambassador, Chef Ralf Motta to whip up something spectacularly romantic for you!
Plan a Picnic on the Beach – Rent a Jeep from Centerline Car Rentals, grab your partner and head out to explore one of our many beautiful beaches. You can shop ahead for all your supplies at one of the many local markets, or grab local fruits and veggies from one of our year round local farm stands. Or, get your private chef to leave you a basket full of goodies for a wonderfully relaxing beach day. (Don’t forget your Reef Safe sunscreen!)
Experience a Breathtaking Adventure Together– there’s nothing like the thrill of adrenaline pulsing through your veins as you scream down three ziplines through the lush Carambola valley. Carambola Zipline offers an unforgettable experience as you soar down a 205 foot vertical drop. An adventure that is sure to bring you closer together.
On a clear day, you can even see St Thomas, St John and the BVI from above the canopy!
Soar Above the Sea Together – Caribbean Sea Adventures offers an incredible parasailing adventure where you can float above the sea with your favorite person. Or opt for a luxury boating experience that is both sexy and relatively affordable with a splurge on a private boat charter to Buck Island for two (or with your favorite couples) aboard their twin 300hp Smooth Recovery.
Take the plunge – Ready to take your underwater adventure to the next level? Get certified to Scuba dive while you are here on St Croix. You can test the waters with a “Discover Scuba” dive that will get you up to 40 feet deep and count towards your first open water dive should you choose to go all the way. Choose from one of the many PADI-certified scuba operators on St Croix.
A Romantic Dinner for Just You Two – book a private dining experience in the 17th century Sugar Mill at the historic Buccaneer Beach and Golf Resort. The expansive Buccaneer property has been owned and managed by the same family since its inception as a hotel in the 1940’s, but its history traces back to a Knight of Malta in 1653. The resort has been host to celebrities and public figures throughout its decades and offers three beaches, an 18-hole golf course, 8 tennis courts, four restaurants and much more.
Horseback Riding on the Beach – Book a romantic beach ride for two or join a group ride with Cruzan Cowgirls along the West End shore for the perfect sunset. You’ll be riding rescued and rehabilitated local horses who can’t wait to take you for a swim. Ride along “Cowboy Beach” and up through the rainforest as you learn more about the island. ON your way back, take a swim on your trusty steed. Truly a bucket list adventure!
Jeep Tour for Two – Book a private jeep tour to the famed Anally Bay Tide Pools with Tan Tan Jeep Tours. You’ll be holding on to each other tight as this high octane adventure takes you four-wheeling through the rainforest down to the incredibly romantic tide pools.
Take A Hike down to Jack & Isaac Bay – A moderate hike down from the Easternmost point of St Croix, you’ll find your way along the well maintained Nature Conservancy trail to one of the most pristine beaches on the island at Isaac Bay. There are no facilities or amenities when you get there, just pure nature, so be sure to pack some snacks and water and carry back when you carried in. Snorkeling gear is a plus to explore the fringing reef. Or, just find a spot along the shore to relax and enjoy each other’s company. The beach is expansive and never crowded so there’s plenty of room to stake out your own space.
